Nemo Garland templateYay A Present!

In my last post, I featured my daughter’s Finding Nemo inspired birthday party.  One of the fun décor items that I created for the party was a Nemo garland that was used on the front of the cake table.  If you’re planning a little summer pool party and would like to create your own Nemo garland, click on the pink link- Nemo Inspired Template found at the end of this post.  You’ll find two pages, each showing one fish.  Print at least one of the two pages on white card stock… it’s always nice to have an extra though.  Now get out your scissors, pencil, card stock colors of your choice, hole puncher and ribbon.  You’re ready to go!

Simply cut out “Nemo” to create your template and use him to trace the image on your colored card stock.  Then cut out each colored card stock “Nemo” and hole punch around the middle of his tail, then line up a hole punch for the front of the fish.  Going forward make sure all the fish are hole punched in the same spot so the garland is uniform.  I used nine fish to complete the garland for a six-foot long table.  Once you are done with your fish, simply use your ribbon to string them.  Talk about easy!

For your treat table by the pool, an orange and white “Nemo” garland would offset an aqua table-cloth beautifully.  With the aqua color of your pool in the background, and the use of some orange paper plates, napkins, cups and straws. The look should be fabulous!  A rainbow-colored “Nemo” garland would be so much fun too!  I’d love to see how you use the template.  Please share your photos featuring your “Nemo” inspired garland and I’ll post them to Mouse Ears Mom Facebook page for everyone to enjoy!

Merry Christmas in July and “Just Keep Swimming.”
