DIY: paper christmas garland …

December 7, 2010

so, i finally am getting a chance around here to make a few fun christmas crafts.  i’ll be sharing a few of my fun projects over the next little bit.

my first christmas craft i decided to make was some fun paper garland.  here’s a little tutorial / DIY on how i made the christmas paper garland.

i was able to use a great new die cut machine from lifestyle crafts.  i used their basic nesting circles from their new basic shapes release to cut out my paper.

i used part of my huge supply of vintage music sheets, and i also used gold and silver shiny poster board i picked up at the craft store.

the process was really simple.  after i cut out my paper circles,  i just feed each circle through my sewing machine one after the other.  for the gold and silver, i double them up, so they would show the color on the front and back.
i didn’t really have a pattern in mind, i just feed through whatever color i thought looked good.

and, that’s pretty much it.
just make it as short or as long as you need it!
let me know if you make one, i’d love to see it!

now, i’m off to make norah’s sweater stocking to match the rest of ours…. i never got around to making her one last year.
