50 DIY Days with Acute Designs: Paper Snowflake Garland

Day 41: I got this simple and cute idea from Pinterest.  Where else?  Garlands are an easy and fun way to spruce up your space for any holiday.For this garland, I went with snowflakes.  They are super easy {I am pretty sure we all made them in kindergarten} and are a fun “in front of the tv” project.Supplies Needed:-paper for snowflakes-scissors-tape-string, twine, or yarn1. Cute several snowflakes – I used silver and blue paper and make about 15…mine were done in various sizes.

 

Take a square piece of paper and fold in half to make a triangle.  Fold the triangle in half again and then bring each side to the center.  Cut off the bottom edge so you have a small folded triangle.  Make several cuts in the triangle and open – each one will be different!
2. Cut a piece of string, twine, or yarn that is about 10 feet long and pull the string through each snowflake.  If you are particular {like I am } you can line the snowflakes up first in the order you wish for them to appear on the string.

 

3. You might need to use a few small piece of tape to secure certain snowflakes so that they don’t slide around.4. At the end of the string, tie a knot to hold the last piece in place and hang.  I don’t have a mantle {which would be perfect for this craft} so I hung my garland about the windows in the dining room. 

 

It is so cute and festive and can stay up through the winter season – I love it!  
Have fun decorating for the holidays ~ xo, Gina {AcuteDesigns}
