Make your own garland
An orange or two • A pen A star stencil • A sharp knife• Some box string
Are you a young ‘un? You’ll also need:
An adult (for their supervision and knife skills)
Create a star stencil from an old cereal packet. Hold your stencil on the orange and draw around it, onto your peel.
Carefully cut around the lines and peel one side outside of the cuts.
Slowly peel the star off the orange. Repeat the process till you have a few stars – make sure there’s an even number.
Leave them in a warm, dry place so they shrink and dry hard.
Lay a dried star pith-side up. Put a splodge of glue in the middle and lay your box string over the top.
Add another splodge of glue and stick another star over it, at an angle.
Repeat till you have a garland full. Let the glue dry and hang it on your tree, over picture frames or wherever you like.
