These easy-to-make garlands are cute and super customizable for any kind of event you’re having! I made some for Hunter’s birthday, which passed a couple of days ago, and they had a big effect on how our little apartment space looked.
- Decide on a color scheme and pick out some fun papers (ribbons, balloons, and other fun pieces can be included too). I used stiff, matte construction paper in blues and greens and some patterned wrapping paper in neutrals.
- Cut papers into (somewhat) uniform triangular shapes. (Hint: It really doesn’t matter if they’re perfect; once they’re all hanging, it’s pretty hard to see any wobbly cuts.)
- Measure out long strands of something study to hold up your garlands. I used common kitchen twine.
- Tape your paper triangles to the twine. I attached a piece of tape to the top (flat part) of my triangle, then pressed it around the section of twine and to the other side of the paper. Super secure!
- Continue taping your triangles along your twine in whatever color order you want until the whole thing is covered and looking beautiful!
- Optional: Leave some spaces throughout the garland to tie on ribbons or balloons.
- Hang and enjoy!
