DIY Christmas Light Garland

Next to Christmas songs and carols nothing else could set the mood for the holiday season than the delightful glow brought about by the twinkling of Christmas lights. Make a garland of Christmas lights out of colored paper to hang along a window or decorate around your tree. These lights don’t twinkle but they are definitely just as bright and festive!

Materials needed:
Colored board paper
Green art paper
Black marker pen
Ribbon or yarn
Step 1: Fold and cut board paper in to desired size.
Step 2: Stack several pieces together and cut into the shape of a “bulb”.
Step 3: Stack green colored paper and cut into rectangles to make “bulb nozzles” or boquilla.
Step 4: Fold green paper in half.

Step 5: Glue the ends of the “nozzle” to attach the “bulb”.
Step 6: With a black marker draw “bulb wire and filament.
Step 7: Repeat steps 1-6 to make several pieces of different colors.

Step 8: Thread twirling ribbon through “nozzle” in alternating colors and glue in place.
