- Circle cutter
- Purple cardstock
- Gold glittered cardstock
- Gold foil letters
- Hole punch (1/16 inches)
- Gold and white twine
Using the circle cutter, punch 4-inch circles from purple cardstock; cut ten circles.
Add a gold foil letter to each circle to spell out "Eid Mubarak."
Using a hole punch and moving clockwise, punch holes at the 1pm and 11pm marks on the circle.
Cut three stars, each 4 inches in size, from the glittered cardstock.
Punch two holes (side by side) at one of the points of the star. (Tip: punching and threading two holes helps to stabilize the garland and prevent it from twisting the wrong way around.)
Thread twine through a star then onto each of the circles spelling out "Eid." Add another star and thread through the remaining circles; finish the garland by threading the last star.
Knot the ends, and hang to display.
