Making the Thanksgiving Paper Craft Garland

I think it is super important to use high quality papers and card stocks as well as long lasting and amazing adhesives on all projects.  A lot of times kids get stuck using paper that fades and glue sticks that dry out.  Then their projects and masterpieces fade and fall apart.  I think that stinks.  That is why I am going to recommend that if you are crafting for yourself or with kiddos that you invest in a Xyron Mega Runner.  It is so easy to use, refillable AND it works.  It works great right from the start and the adhesive lasts and lasts.  Decorations that I got out of my garage from LAST fall are still intact a year later and that makes me so happy.  This post is sponsored by Xyron but the ideas are my own.

Okay, so you will need a few materials and supplies for this project.  Here is your list.

Cut your drummies out either using the die from the two darker shades of brown card stock.  Cut the pieces for the garland using the bookmark die.  Adhere the drummies to the pieces using your Xyron Mega Runner.

Cut out accent pieces for a decorative piece of fall patterned paper and add details to your drummies.

Use a black permanent marker to outline and feature the parts of your pieces that you want noticed.  I added mouths to give the drummies a little personality.  I also added a couple of words to end pieces.

Use mini clothespins to hang your pieces on a piece of twine.  Ta Da!  It is so super darling.

  1. I would love to use it to create Christmas cards for the children in my daughter’s class and for a garland for the fireplace.

  2. I would use the mega runner for a christmas advent project. I pinned the drummy project for later! Super cute!

  3. My son exclaimed to me as he was watching me scroll through the blog that he wanted to do that and hang is on our windows where we place all out holiday crafts.

  4. This is such an adorable idea! I’d love to use a Mega Runner to create photos of various sizes for hanging on twine! I’m sure I would think of some holiday crafts/gift ideas to make as well!
