Easter Crafts for Kids | How to Make an Easter Card Garland {Tutorial + FREE PRINTABLE} #EasterValue #shop #cbias

I traveled with the kiddos from CA to FL at the beginning of the month so that they could visit with my mother and her husband. They usually only see the "FL grandma" about once a year which is not great but at least it's something. Since my mother came to CA for Mason's birthday party in August 2013, this was a treat because it was only 7 months since she saw the kiddos. My mother called me right after we left to tell me that her husband cleaned out his car and tossed the cards that Kenzie made for her and was devastated because she wanted to display them proudly in her home. I decided it would be fun for Kenzie to make an Easter card garland to mail to her FL grandma to display in her home using Hallmark cards.


Supplies

Directions

1.  Let your child choose their special Hallmark cards to doodle and write on for their loved ones.


2.  Take some of the Hallmark cards and use your cutting machine or punch (or use my FREE PRINTABLE) to cute out cute Easter silhouettes.

3.  Take the completed cards from your child and punch a hole on the top of each.

4.  Lay out your twine and arrange the cards and Hallmark card cutouts however you like.

5.  Weave the twine through each card but leave a little space in between each.

6.  Wrap a small piece of washi over the twine and use your scissors to snip into a flag shape.

7.  Knot the ends of the twine and it's ready to mail for hanging!
