You can see that I got to use some of my red and white string and some of my scrapbooking paper. I used 36 circles cut from my least favorite of the books. It's a cute story though and I enjoy the illustrations. The littles elf is a misfit until he finds what he does best, then he's happy.
I think this would look great in a child's room at Christmas; playing 'I spy' with mom at bed time; adding a cheerful note up by the ceiling. (The center row appears upside down because I zigzagged the garland to photgraph it.)
It turned out 15 ft. 4 inches long... that's a long garland!
