First, I started by creating a cutting file in SCAL2 to cut on my Cricut. The shape is just a large circle with some tiny stars cut out of it. I have made this shape into an SVG file which you can download HERE.
I wanted to spruce up the papers a bit (pun intended!), so I misted the inside with a green mist, and on the outside I used a combination of gesso and mod podge. While the outside was still wet, I sprinkled on some mica snow and let it dry. Then I cut each circle in half.
Finally, in between each light, I added some strips of ribbon in knots.
And now I have a pretty garland for my home!!
Happy Happy Holidays!
