tenth day of christmas: easy christmas tree garland


If you know me, you know I'm all about celebrating special occasions, holidays, and other big events in a memorable, fun and simple way. Over the years I've discovered that I can enjoy these moments so much more when I don't stress myself out. So, with that philosophy in mind, I've got a Christmas decor project with some awesome short cuts to share with you today!

Check out this quick and easy Christmas Tree Garland I made with the Banner Punch Board and the Square Punch Board. Those two tools made this project come together in minutes, and I love how it turned out!



To create this garland, I trimmed some papers from the Crate Paper Falala collection to 4×6 inches. Then I used the Banner Punch Board to make them into banner shapes, and I punched holes for hanging in the top corners with the reverse punch on the board. I made the trees by cutting the green paper into 3 inch long flag shapes and then I turned them upside down.



I used the Square Punch Board to make the tree trunks from some kraft paper in the Falala collection. It was quick and easy since you can punch continuously with the Square Punch Board.





I finished off the trees with some stars that I punched with a Font Punch. Then I strung the pieces all together with some raffia for hanging.





Thanks for joining me today. Be sure to come back each day this week for some inspiring holiday decor projects. Happy holiday crafting!
