Lay the lid as a circle template on the back side of the gold foil paper. Trace around the template with the marker.
Trace around the circle template again, but this time modify the shape to make a partial crescent moon. Repeat until you’ve drawn out the moon in at least two more phases, or up to four (or more!), all the way to a thin crescent.
Cut out the shapes, then trace around all of them (except the full moon), and cut them out again, to make an identical set.
Use a large sewing needle to poke holes on two sides of each of the moons.
Open jump rings with the pliers, and slide then through the holes. Cut 8 lengths of chain, and attach the moons to one another by sliding the chain on the jump rings, then close them.
Add two lengths of chain to each end of the garland for hanging.
