I've had a thing for manila shipping tags lately. I bought a box of 100 of them at Staples awhile back for $6 and have been using them for lots of crafting odds and ends - most recently my Thanksgiving place cards and now this quick garland.

Supplies for Merry Christmas Garland
How to Make Garland
1. Stencil a letter onto each tag and let dry
2. Tie shipping tags around a piece of twine. Reposition and trim tag strings as needed.
3. Hang your garland!
You could of course change up the words and colors for any occasion - how about a "Happy New Years" or "Happy Birthday" garland?
