Quick and easy sparkle garland kids craft



Christmas is sure sneaking up on everyone this year.  It seems like it was just Halloween and now there are days, no hours before the guy in the red suit shows up.  The kids are getting impatient and you have to wrap some presents.  Take a deep breath.  Sit back and enjoy some family craft time with the kiddos.  These little garlands are great for the tree on anywhere you want a little extra sparkle.

So just sit down.  The wrapping can wait and make some family memories for years to come.

Supplies:

  • Sparkle chenille stems in any color.  I used white and silver
  • Scissors
Instructions:


1.     For a garland that will wrap around a 6 ft. tree you will needs several packages of 12” sparkle chenille stems.  There are usually 15 stems in a package.




2.     Cut each stem in half so you will have six-inch stems.  Form the first stem into a ring and twist the ends together to secure.


3.     Insert the second stem through the first one and close like you did before.  Continue adding rings until you have reached the length of garland you prefer.
