Christmas is officially about a month away, and our family is more than excited. The holiday season is a favorite time of ours with all the festivities surrounding it. Anything that requires us to be together as a family is always so much fun! Spreading holiday cheer is easy to do when you are doing things together as a family and have those Hallmark Holiday Cards at Walmart. Here is a festive do-it-yourself garland activity that is not only perfect for little hands, but is great for the entire family!
Making that DIY Garland.
I can’t think of a Christmas where we didn’t have some sort of Christmas tree. Table top to full size, we have always had a Christmas tree put up by the day after Thanksgiving. With Christmas trees comes those ornaments and tree decorations. My kids absolutely love to decorate the tree, from unpacking ornaments to putting them on the tree themselves. So making a garland for our tree is always a top favorite family activity! We opted for cereal and popped popcorn for our garland. To make stringing the cereal and popped popcorn easier, purchase a plastic lacing needle and yarn. We picked up all of our garland items while we were at Walmart picking up our Hallmark Holiday Cards.
Assembling the garland:
- Decide on the garland length and cut that amount of yarn.
- Start making the garland by looping the yarn into the eye of the plastic needle and securing it in place with a small knot.
- Then add another knot at the other end of the yarn. Make sure the knot is large enough to keep the cereal and popcorn from sliding off.
- Now for the fun! Thread the cereal and popcorn onto the thread. Be creative with your design!
- Once you are done with threading the cereal and popcorn, cut off the yarn at the needle and tie another knot that is large enough to keep the cereal and popcorn from sliding off.
- Take that garland and arrange it wherever and however on the branches of your Christmas tree. If you don’t have a Christmas tree, that is ok! This garland can be hung above any wall decor or on shelving/mantle.
Cookies and Hallmark Holiday Cards
We are always finding excuses for baking cookies during the holidays and having them for our garland activity was a must! Before we sat down to make our garland, we rolled out our cookie dough and cut out all of our cookies with our Christmas cookie cutters. While they were baking, we set everything up for making our garland. Cookies and garland making is such a great way to spend time with family. What is even more fun is reading and writing all those Christmas cards. We look forward to receiving and giving Christmas cards each year. There was no question that Hallmark Signature and Paper Wonder Cards were going to be our way for sharing the holiday cheer with all our family and friends. Cards are such a great way for spreading warmth and joy during the holidays!
The Hallmark Signature and Paper Wonder Cards can be found at Walmart. They will be easily spotted by the beautiful display. And I can’t forget to mention these great offers! With an in-aisle coupon, you will get one card free when you buy 2 Hallmark Cards. Another in-aisle offer is a plush offer. Get a plush Holiday Bear for only $3.97 with the purchase of 3 Hallmark Cards priced $1.97 or higher. These offers are available through 12/25/18 or while supplies lasts. There is also an Ibotta offer! You will earn $1 off a card purchase of $2.97 or more. This offer is available through 12/25/18 or while supplies last.
I can’t even describe how my kids’ faces light up when they receive a card. Hallmark has all the cards you need for this Holiday season and you can find great prices and selection at Walmart. The Hallmark Signature and Paper Wonder Cards truly bring the holiday cheer. My kids loved how the Paper Wonder Cards popped up! The Hallmark Signature Card with the finger puppets was more than a hit, bringing lots of smiles and laughs.
Spreading that Holiday Cheer with others.
I am hoping you all have a very Merry Christmas and are able to not only enjoy your family with this do-it-yourself garland, but will also be able to spread that holiday cheer with others through Hallmark Holiday Cards.
