Looking for a kids craft for today? You stopped by the right place! This Recycled Paper Garland is fun to make and doubles as a holiday decoration! It looks amazing and festive on any and every wall! I’m thrilled, to have Birute, from Playtivities, guest posting and sharing this awesome craft with us today!
Whether you decorate house for the holidays or not – it always makes big difference when you make the decorations yourself. Even better – when kids make it. Because – anything they make is cute, adorable and fits every style and design.
There are thousands of ways to make paper garlands. They are all so joyful to look at and usually makes you keep them way past the occasion you hanged them for.
Today’s paper garland is made from old coloring pages and books that normally would go to recycling bin. They become alive and make this craft more meaningful.
To make paper garland craft you will need:
- Paper (we used old coloring pages and kid magazines that had thicker pages)
- Rope or ribbon
1. Take some paper from old book or a magazine and fold each one accordion style in 1 inch sections.
2. Fold it in half.
3. Staple it.
4. Attach 2 folded sheets together (with stapler) to form a round shape.
5. Staple all the folded ‘flowers’ to the string or ribbon and hang it on the wall.
Note: We loved the smaller garland ‘flowers’, because they tend to be more sturdy when hanged on the wall. So we cut each paper in half and then folded.
This paper garland looked festive, yet very simple and matched out rustic wall art.
