Paper circle garlands

I’d been eying these paper circle garlands on pinterest for a while. So, this weekend, when we welcomed one of our sons home from sleep away camp, I decided to use some to decorate.

They were super simple to make: cut circles from paper, then stitch. (Look here for a really great tutorial.) Or, if you’d rather just buy some handmade paper circle garlandsย on etsy, look hereย or here.

Since I spaced the circles a bit too far apart, I did struggle a bit with keeping the garlands from getting tangled up in themselves. So, when I discovered that my husband had taken the garlands down without my supervision, I gasped in horror, imagining a heap of tangled thread and paper circles. What I discovered instead, was his very simple solution to the problem: a clip. Bravo, dear husband!

I know I could do better if I did it again (less thread, more circles) but it was altogether a fun and easy project.

P.S. If you’re a pinterest user, I’d love to connect with you there! Here’s where you can find me.ย

    1. Good grief not hand-stitched I shoudl have specified that! Machine stitched… its was super easy and fast! I think they would have liked them more if I had hung them where they could mess with them more ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. They’re so easy to make, Martha, you could do it in a second. The next itme I make some, though, I’m going to hang them all vertically from one horizontal string.
