- Print Star patterns and choose which sizes you want to make.

- Cut out Stars.
- Decide where you might want to hang your garland and then cut a piece of yarn or string long enough so that it can be tied to branches or some other place you choose.
- You can attach your stars one of several ways. Lay the stars down on the table in the pattern you want (red, white, blue etc.) and then lay the yarn/string along the top section of the stars and tape into place. OR You can staple the tops of the stars onto the yarn/string. A third choice is to use a hole punch and puch holes on both sides of the star and then just lace the yarn/string through. (use the same method each time however, "up through the bottom, down through the top")
