Last minute decorations? This garland can be made in 15 minutes and all you need is paper, scissors, ruler, cutter, needle and thread.
Just follow these simple steps:
Take a piece of paper. I’ve used a DIN-A4. Divide the total length of the paper by 3 and make a mark in both long edges.
Use a ruler to connect the dots this way:
Go to your cutting board –which I hope is in better shape than mine- and cut a line just in the center of the paper (where the lines cross) skipping the edges, as in the image below:
Fold in half and cut following the lines.
You’ll get 10 triangles per paper 🙂
Pass a string thought the shortest edge of every triangle alternating colors.
Use orange and black paper to use it for Halloween; blue, red and white for the 4th of July; green for St. Patrick’s, decorate it with messages… use your imagination and enjoy!
