The materials and directions listed here makes a garland measuring approximately 6.5 feet (2 meters.)
- 3 sheets of purple card stock paper
- 3 sheets of metallic gold card stock paper
- Scrap of white paper
- Gold foil star stickers
- Double sided tape
- Cut the purple and gold sheets of paper into 2″ x 11″ strips.
- Fold the white paper multiple times over into a small rectangle; using a small circular object (like the cap of a glue stick or a coin) trace a crescent shape onto the paper. Cut the shape to reveal several crescents. You will need approximately 5 – 6 crescents on one strip of paper.
- On some of the purple strips, glue crescents and add gold star stickers.
- Assemble the paper chain by sticking a piece of double sided tape to one end of the paper strip and bending it into a circle. Continue to make the garland by interlinking circles. Alternate between gold paper, plain purple paper and purple paper with crescents and stars.
