Martha Stewart has a great tutorial for making New Year’s streamers that would be easy to green up. Instead of card stock, snag some thin cardboard from your recycle bin. You can skip the toxic spray adhesive and paint your circles with white glue and cover in glitter for a shimmering effect that has a lower impact.
