No offense to all y'all out there who go hogwild for every holiday, but that's not my style. So just like Thanksgiving, we're using paper, which means two things:
1. free (yay)
2. disposable (double yay)
Pull out some paper and cut strips about an inch wide. We used random construction paper, but if you're not as lazy and want to get all fancy pants like, you could certainly use patterned scrapbook stuff. (Polka dots, anyone?) Fold in half, then loop around and staple. Connect them together just like a paper chain, and - 2 minutes from the first staple - you're finished. And officially festive.
