MAKE IT / 42
before we start our DIY, have you entered our facebook giveaway today?
do you remember this garland that natalie made at our LA blogshop? (see here) we decided to show you the very simple steps to follow so you can make one of your own for an upcoming party or event…or to just make one of the corners in your house look cool.
what you’ll need:
• card stock
• sewing machine
how to make it:
• for the traingle strand: with a pair of scissors, cut the sheet of card stock into 2 in wide strips.
• cut the card stock strips into triangles by holding the scissors at a 45 degree angle, cutting towards the corner of the strip. cut in the opposite direction to complete the triangle.
run each triangle through a sewing machine, slightly overlapping each to continue the stitch.
get creative with the shapes you make. you can use a circle hole punch for the circle strand, and we are also fans of just the rectangle shapes…
lastly, hang! we used adhesive putty, but double sided tape or tacks would work just as well.
and there you have it! a very festive corner of your house. and if you have leftover paper cutouts you can always use them as confetti on the table to tie the theme together…
so what do ya think? are you gonna make one of these pretty garlands?
