Christmas Glitter Garland For The Children

Happy Monday!
Today, I am going to share with you a tutorial you can do with your children, but I want to share some wonderful news first. Tomorrow, Dec 6, 2011, I will be guest hosting over with Janny, from Que Linda Blog. If you have never be over at Que Linda's before you need to stop by and see her awesome tutorials. Diane from "The Girl Creative" challenge bloggers to stopping pinning and start creating and thus Creating Christmas was born. Janny and other bloggers are hosting Creating Christmas this whole week, so don't forget to stop Janny's blog tomorrow and see my Christmas tutorial. Remember leave a comment on Janny's blog because I LOVE your SWEET comments.

I did a super fun and easy project with my little one over the weekend. The both of us love crafting and glitter so we decided to make a Christmas glitter garland.
These are the supplies you will need:
A box (cereal, cookie or cracker box)

For this project I cut out circles and a star out of a cereal box.

Use templates, stencil or free hand your design 
Once I cut out the circles and star, little G brushed on glue on the shiny side of the box and then added glitter. Once the cut outs where all dry, I taped them to yarn and hung them up across a mirror.

I added a red bead garland on top of the mirror  
Glitter just make everything look pretty, don't you think? 
I'll always treasure this project.
I love how this project turned out and most importantly I create a sweet memory for little G and me. Thanks for stopping by and I will see you at Que Linda tomorrow! I LOVE your sweet comments so drop me a line.
