Step by Step Instructions

1 Cut out the garland template
2 Cut your foam into shapes
3 Decorate your shapes
4 Glue shapes to your string
5 Hang up your garland
  • Step 1. Cut out the garland template

    First print off our garland template and cut out the shapes for your snowman, star and Christmas tree. 

  • Step 2. Cut your foam into shapes

    Trace out the shapes onto the foam card and cut them out. We’ve used the white for the snowman, green for the Christmas tree and yellow for our star.

  • Step 3. Decorate your shapes

    Once you’ve cut out enough shapes you’re ready to decorate them with glitter, felt and paint.

  • Step 4. Glue shapes to your string

    Wait for the decorations to dry, then paint the backs with craft glue and attach them to your length of string. We’ve made a pattern using all the different shapes, but you can make them all the same if you like.

  • Step 5. Hang up your garland

    And there you have it, a fun and easy decoration to make, that looks great on windows, walls or wrapped around the Christmas tree.
