Paper Garland {Tutorial}

A few days ago I shared my son’s first birthday party.  The theme was “first trip around the sun” and you can see more pictures here.  I made most of the decorations myself and wanted to share with you how I did some of these projects.

The paper garland was one of my favorite projects.  Not only did I use if for the party but it is now up in Henry’s room so I can enjoy it everyday! This project is so easy it hardly needs a tutorial but here is one anyway.

For this project you will need:

  • Card stock
  •  1 1/2″ and 2″ circle paper punches
  • Thread
  • Sewing machine

  1. Gather your supplies.  I used two colors of paper and two different sized circle punches but the options are endless.  You could make a garland using just one color or a whole rainbow of colors.  You also aren’t limited to circles, use your imagination to incorporate shapes to accompany any holiday or season.
  2. Use your paper punch to cut out a variety of circles.
  3. Crank up your sewing machine and use it to sew down the center of the circles to form a garland.  I left a little gap between each of my circles but the spacing is entirely up to you. Paper Garland {Tutorial} -

So go ahead, make yourself some lovely garland and string it up to your hearts content!
