A String of Garlands

We often get on a creative streak around here. Such as when everyone decided they love markers, and we did one marker project after another. Or my obsession with plastic lids. Our most recent creative streak is garlands, and it began with this sun: 

Isn't it great? Isia loves to cut and glue these days, and made it by herself. Well, then it needed some hearts "for company," so she made those. Then there needed to be a house. And then, finally, she wanted to hang it all up to be displayed. At first I thought about just a single string garland, but I knew the house would just keep flipping over since it was so heavy. So I ended up taping up a "z" of string over our kitchen window, and taping everything (on the back) to that. 

Well,  that looked so cheery compared to the snow we had at the time, that we decided we needed more garlands! So we added this one to our collection. 
It's so simple! Isia used our round squeeze punchon cardstock, construction paper, and old cards to create a big pile of circles. Then Billy use his big preschooler skills to help find the matching circles & glue them onto a piece of cotton yarnfor hanging. We'd lay one circle down, add glue to it, then our yarn, then our matching circle on top. I left long yarn ends on both sides for hanging.

You can place your circles as close together as far apart as you like. A perfect way to welcome company, or a gathering... or a long awaited spring!
