It’s Tuesday! From here on out to the end of the year, I will have a tutorial every Tuesday.
We have a narrow window next to our front door (most houses around here do). Not a fan. The obvious solution would be to hang a curtain. But that would have required me to buy fabric and I wasn’t in the mood so instead I made a bunch of paper flower garlands to hang in the window. I have lots of paper laying around so it was a breeze to assemble. I love it and so far, no children have pulled it down…
HOW TO MAKE A PAPER FLOWER
Step 1: Cut a pile of circles.
Step 2: Cut a slit from the outside to the center of the circles.
Step 3: Dab some glue with a hot glue gun on one side of the slit.
Step 4: Squeeze the 2 sides together.
Step 5: Repeat the gluing on 2 more circles. Each time make the cone shape smaller so you have a variation.
Step 6: Use hot glue to stick them together in a stack.
HOW TO MAKE A PAPER GARLAND
Make a bunch of the flowers, paper straws, and any other shapes you want. String them on jute.
Then make a bunch of garlands because it’s fun. And then hang them in your window because it’s beautiful.
