4th day of christmas: alphabet punch board christmas tree garland

A few years ago we got a new Christmas tree--a 9 foot pre-lit willow pine. I settled on a metallic theme to the ornaments on the tree, and we've been adding more goodies to put on it each year. This year, I made a DIY Merry Christmas Garland to bulk up the tree decor a bit. Check it out!

I used my We R Memory Keepers Alphabet Punch Board to create the letters for this Christmas Tree garland.


 It was easy, and the letters were done in minutes. I punched them out of some gold Mylar Sheets from Bazzill Basics. I love the shimmer and and shine they add to my metallic tree!


I taped some jute twine to the back of the letters using masking tape. You could also use washi tape or clear tape.


The letters are all 3x5 inches, except for the "M"--it's 5x5 inches. They fit nicely with the size of my tree. If you'd like to see how to create letters with the Alphabet Punch Board, you can check out my YouTube video below.




It's easy to place them in between the pine branches and ornaments, and I simply tied them onto a branch at each end of the twine to secure them.


I love how the mylar paper on the garland catches the Christmas lights and reflects them. So pretty!


What do you think? Is this kind of garland something you would hang on your Christmas tree?
