Get your supplies!

You will need:

  • Micador Marathon Markers, Wallet 12

  • Micador jR. Drawing Paper, A3

  • Micador jR. Safe Scissors

  • String

  • Graphite pencil

  • Sticky tape

Step 1: Draw!

Using a graphite pencil, draw or trace some light bulbs onto your drawing paper. You can find a template for the bulbs that we used above. The more light bulbs you draw, the longer the garland will be!

Step 2: Colour!

Use your Marathon Markers to colour in the light bulbs. Use bright colours like yellow, orange, red, green and blue. Colour the base of the lightbulbs in black - this is where the string will attach at the back.

Step 3: Cut!

Follow the pencil outline and cut out each light bulb from the page.

Step 4: Hang!

Cut a length of string and begin attaching the light bulbs to it. Alternate the colours and use a piece of sticky tape on the back of each bulb to attach the string. Allow a bit of extra string on each end so you can tie or hang the garland.
