Nothing turns a space into a party as quickly as a large swath of party garland. These bright triangles might be the easiest we’ve made yet.
It’s cut, string, BAM!
With this simple trick you can turn any space into a party in just minutes. I love that the garland can be re-used too, since it is not themed – these gigantic triangles will look swell celebrating anything from your kid’s birthday to your best friend’s bridal shower. (Also, side note: I’m officially out of the stage of life where I throw bridal showers – crazy thought). Anyway, make this garland and be ready for any party that comes your way.
To make the gigantic triangle party garland you will need a stack of colorful 12×12 inch scrapbook papers. The bigger the stack the more garland you can make. Each piece of paper will make 5 gigantic triangles.
The easiest way to cut the paper for this garland project is to measure and dot the side of the paper every 4 inches on one side. Then on the other side. Using a ruler draw a straight line from your first dot to the bottom corner of the paper. This is your starting line. Then repeat until the triangles are all created. Cut along the lines for long, skinny, awesome party garland (Psst. Try it with these long skinny candles).
Next take the top edge, glue and a piece of string and string up the garland! Once the glue is dry you can fold the garland back and forth to create a stack that is easy to store away and pull out party after party. All year long!
The garland can really take on a personality all it’s own with the color selection used. Our bright bold palette is fun for birthdays, kids and showers. Go monochromatic for a gorgeous wedding, or fancy party detail and a more relaxed pastel tone would be great for finally updating that blank wall hanging around the house.
PS. All the garlands.
