DIY Merry Christmas Garland

I'm excited to share this Merry Christmas Garland! I've been wanting to make one for years. And finally did it. It was easier then I thought and the perfect craft to do while you watch a Christmas movie!


A few years ago, I pinned this garland from Pottery Barn onto my Christmas board. My first thought was.. that looks a lot like index cards! And I seriously have been wanting to make something like this for years!


My garland is a little bit different but I think both look classic. 
 Here is how you can make my version.

You will need:
//14 Index cards
//ribbon or string
//Red paint or Ink pad
//ABC Stamps
//Scissors
//Glue gun and glue stick
//Boxwood (optional)

1. Lay out your index cards and stamp a letter on each one until you have spelled "Merry Christmas". I use a paintbrush and paint onto the letter, but you can use an ink pad too. Let dry.

2. After your paint is dry, hot glue your ribbon or string to the back of each card. leave enough ribbon on each end to hang. 

3. Add boxwood in-between each card if you choose. I like the little pop of green it adds :) 




I'm excited to be a part of the 25 Days of Christmas Series at That's What Che Said!!
