materials

  • Circle cutter
  • Purple cardstock
  • Gold glittered cardstock
  • Gold foil letters
  • Hole punch (1/16 inches)
  • Gold and white twine

steps

  1. Using the circle cutter, punch 4-inch circles from purple cardstock; cut ten circles.

  2. Add a gold foil letter to each circle to spell out "Eid Mubarak."

  3. Using a hole punch and moving clockwise, punch holes at the 1pm and 11pm marks on the circle.

  4. Cut three stars, each 4 inches in size, from the glittered cardstock.

  5. 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.)

  6. 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.

  7. Knot the ends, and hang to display.

  8. Optional: follow our directions to make the
