Paper garlands: the simplest

When it comes to decorating a room, garlands play a major role. On this page, we will show you how to quickly make the simplest garlands, for which you only need colored paper, scissors, glue and thread.

Paper strip garland

Such a beautiful garland is made incredibly quickly and simply. First of all, cut multi-colored strips and lay them in one column for the length of the entire table. Lubricate the thread, preferably thicker, with PVA glue and attach in the center of the strips, pulling the edges down. Let the glue dry, and when you lift it up, you will find the finished multi-colored garland. In order to give it volume, it is enough to twist the thread from either end.

Paper link garland

This is one of the garlands, for the manufacture of which there is no need for a thread. Cut colored strips need to be glued into links.

Paper lantern garland

It is a little more difficult to make such a garland in the form of a flashlight, the cutting instructions for which you can see above. After cutting the sheet into four identical rectangles, fold each of them in half, lengthwise. No need to mark the cuts with a pencil, just make the cuts not completely. All that remains is to glue the rectangle into a cylinder and flatten it.

Paper flag garland

It is also easy to make your own garland of flags. After cutting oblong rectangles, bend them in half and make two cuts on each. You can hang such flags in two ways, using a needle or glue, as simply hung flags will roll towards each other.

Zigzag paper garland

Zigzag is another garland for which there is no need to use a thread. The sheet is cut as shown in the image above and then stretched. Zigzags are glued together to stretch through the room or hang on the window.

To make any simple garland look more attractive, choose bright colored paper.
