Happy Fourth of July everyone! To help celebrate the birth of our nation and decorate my family room mantel I made this super simple and cheap star garland. All you need is:

• One big piece of card stock. (I choose this gold glitter one).
• About four feet of clear jewelry wire
• A pencil, ruler, scissors, and a glue gun.

Here’s what you do:

4th of July Craft Ideas - DIY Star Garland - lehmanlane.net1) Trace 1 big (about 5-6 inches), 1 medium, (3inches), and 1 small (1 inch) star on the back of the card stock. I made my stars imperfect on purpose to give them a more vintage home made look.

Tip: I had all of these items at home already so this craft was free for me to make. I use card stock a lot in my decorating so I usually stock up on it when it goes on sale at AC Moore or Michael’s. You can chose you own favorite pattern. I chose the gold glitter paper because I wanted to be able to use the garland again at Christmas and New Years. I see more card stock garland on my mantels in the future:)…(leaves in the fall, flowers in the spring, hearts or snowflakes in the winter, letter signs). The possibilities are endless:)

I hope this inspires you to create a card stock garland of your own. Please keep checking back to see what we are up to here at Lehman Lane :).

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my DIY – Star Garland!
