Christmas Decorating Ideas: DIY Paper Christmas Garland


Here’s how to make a show stopping garland
entirely out of paper. You will need a cutting mat, vellum and pearlescent cardstock, a pencil,
a leaf template, scissors, a scoring template from bhg.com, a bone folder, string, a round
paper punch, red cardstock, white floral wire and a hot glue gun. Trace the leaf template
onto both vellum and cardstock and cut them out. Using the scoring template from bhg.com,
which has been traced onto cardboard and cut out, score each leaf several times using a
bone folder. Do this on a cushioned surface such as a cutting mat. Gently, fold the leaf
along the score line. Repeat the process to make several more leaves. Using a hot glue
gun, attach the stems of the leaves to a piece of string, alternating vellum and cardstock
leaves. Using a paper punch, make several circles from red cardstock. Cut three pieces
of white floral wire, fold each strand in half and twist it. Sandwich a piece of wire
between two red circles and hot glue gun together. Twist three of the wire strands together to
make a cluster. Repeat the process to make several more clusters. Using a hot glue gun,
attach the berries to the box of every third or fourth leaf on the garland. Finally, hang
your garland.
