Mother's Day Garland

Since Mother's Day is this weekend, I wanted to share something I came up with recently. I was inspired by a text box shape on the front of a recent Country Living magazine and I had tons of glitter left from our pumpkins in the Fall. Anyone else have Martha Stewart glitter to use up? Here's an idea for you using the Cinnabar glitter.

First of all, print off one each of the following five pages on white card stock.



Next, outline the letter using white Elmer's glue:

Now fill the outline in pretty thick with Elmer's glue:
Cover with glitter:

Shake off excess and place back in glitter container to re-use:

Cut out shape and punch a small hole in each top corner:
Thread ribbon through and hang or place sticks from the yard or a craft dowel in a jar of sand or rice and use to decorate your table for Mother's Day!
