It’s raining garlands hallelujah (or we’re really sorry, depending how you feel about garlands!) We whipped this garland up for a BBQ we had all together this past week and Cal can vouch for it’s authenticity as he tried to lick one. They couldn’t be easier, and definitely doable without a Cricut, but with the Explore this only takes a few minutes!
Here’s how you’ll do it:
Gather 12×12 craft foam sheets in multiple colors (we used 7 here repeating them each twice) The project page has both bitten and whole popsicles so as you make each color you’ll have lots of options! We alternated every three or four with a bitten one stuck in there!
After you’ve run each sheet through the machine you’ll arrange them in the desired pattern, the hot glue the popsicle sticks onto the backs of each one. We glued it with about half the stick showing.
Once they’ve dried you can attach the string or twine of your choice to the backs. We wanted to be able to use the popsicles on their own or on a garland multiple times so we just taped them to the neon string! Then display at your next get together and watch some eyes light up (or some tongues come out, depending.)
