paper of choice (I used various types of cardstock and scrapbook paper)
circle cutter (or scissors)
-You will need to cut your paper into circle sizes of your choice. I made a few garlands with
different sized circles: 4.5", 5.5", and 7.5" diameters.
string (I used a roll of acrylic crochet yarn-- it is lightweight and doesn't fray much)
1. Cut a piece of string to whatever length you want. If it's for a specific location or space, you should measure the length and plan accordingly. I created these for my backyard patio and I wanted various lengths to create a layered look; each of my garlands are different lengths. I suppose you could get mathematical and more precise, but it didn't matter to me.
2. Fold each of your cut paper circles in half to form a semi-circle.
Catching up on Mad Men and watching Don Draper walk around in a grade-A suit helped pass the time. Wink.
