Step 2: Punch shapes from patterned paper. Punch 25 large stars and 50 small stars. Then separate and sort punched stars into 5 piles. Create a pattern and line them up in order for later ease of sewing.

Step 3: Sew! Keeping the stars in order by stacking, start sewing the stars into garlands. Add a star one at a time, leaving an even gap between, until you have sewn each star. Continue until each of the 5 strands are sewn.

Step 4: Using tree branches and hemp, make a cross or X. Using the hemp, tightly wrap many times to secure the branches together.
