I am so sick of snow. There is still so much on the ground outside and now it’s just all slushy and bothersome….If you can’t tell, I really, really, really want it to be spring! So, yesterday, even though it’s pretty early, I made a spring word-themed garland to brighten up my room! It does take a bit of time, but the results are gorgeous, so let’s get started…

You Will Need: Paper, Construction Paper, Scissors, Tape, Glue, Ribbon, a Pencil, and Markers, (crayons or colored pencils also work)

Step 1- Divide your paper into squares according to how large you want each letter to be.

Step 2- Sketch one letter in each square. I used a flower lettering from the American Girl A-Z Letter Art book, where you just draw a flower and put a swirly letter inside, but you can choose whichever font you would like.

Step 3- Color the letters in.

Step 4- Cut the squares out.

Step 5- Cut squares out of construction paper that are slightly bigger than your letters. Glue these to your letters so they act as a border.

Step 6- Tape onto a ribbon.

Step 7- Hang up your garland, and you’re done!
