DIY Paper Flower Garland


A garland is an essential to any bedroom or office (or any other well loved room for that matter) to give it that extra bit of femininity and delicate touch. There are literally hundreds of different garland ideas and creations out there, however my favourite, in keeping with my bedroom theme, is the flower garland. 

You will need:

Paper
Template (downloadable here)
Tissue paper
Scissors
String
Pencil
Nails
Hammer
Thread
Sewing needle

1 Print off the template and then cut around it.
2 Placing the template onto the tissue paper, draw around the template onto the tissue paper.
3 Assemble 3 - 4 tissue flowers per each flower to give it more body and then cut around them from the template.
4 Sew the bundle of paper flowers together, this should consist of 3 - 4 tissue paper flowers.
5 Sew the flowers onto the cut string (my string was measured at 145cm).
7 Hammer two nails into the wall and then hang the garland on these nails.
