Hanging Decorative Garland
September 26th, 2010 by Craftylocks

These are really very pretty – and pretty easy to make too.

Start with two or three different pieces of colored paper and cut some circles out of them. You only need two circles from each color, but the more you cut, the more garlands you can make.

Fold all the circles in half, draw a half circle on each folded piece of paper and cut it out. On the smaller half circle, draw and cut out a half heart shape. Aim to end up with a series of folded shapes as pictured below.

Unfold all the shapes. Spread glue on one shape and lay some string on it, lay a matching shape of a different color on top. Keep adding more shapes to the garland. You can decorate the shapes with glitter – but we quite liked it plain.
