Turned into this…
Materials used: card stock (I used green and white card stock), 1 1/2 inch circle punch, black thread (or any color that works for you), glue, typewriter key font, computer, printer
This particular font is available in black keys and white/clear keys and I used the white/clear keys so I didn’t use up so much ink and the cardstock color was more visible.
I had to fiddle with the size font (105 pt) to fit inside the circle punch. 20 “keys” fit on my paper, four across and five down. Cutting the paper into strips made it easier to get the punch centered on the letter.
The circles are glued back-to-back with black thread in between for some toddler-proof garland. It’s made so if the circles flip over, the letters are still the right way. Our tree has so many lights on it that I couldn’t get a picture with the garland on the tree so I tried it on the banister.
This was very easy and relatively inexpensive. Cardstock can be purchased from Staples for five cents a sheet so you don’t have to buy an entire ream for this project. The circle punch was on sale at 40% off and can be used for other projects.
If you have any questions, just leave a comment and I’ll reply as soon as I can.
That’s lovely! My paper garland involved two two year olds, construction paper cut into strips, and a couple glue sticks.
This is so pretty! Thanks for sharing!
Great looking pictures of the garland. You certainly are into various crafts. I love them for the banister.
