Paper Star Light Garland | A Subtle Revelry

Paper Star Light Garland | A Subtle Revelry

The Fourth of July is coming quickly – as in, you have two days left to plan! Here is a simple last-minute idea that you can put up for the holiday, and luckily, it’s not too themed that you could leave it up for star-lit nights all summer long. I love the paper star garland wrapped carelessly over a red stick, and hung as a centerpiece on the table. It could also be strung as a simple garland around the house or above the table.

To make the paper star lights you will need white printer paper, a simple star template, and a strand of white lights. Cut out two of the stars for each light and glue them together leaving a small hole to slip the light through.

    Beautiful! These will be so pretty!

    FYI, trying to pin this via your pin it button and other ways through pinterest, but keep getting an error that there are no valid images to pin. I’ve bookmarked it at least.

    Thank you for sharing this great idea!

    Love this idea! I tried to “pin” it but all the images in the post come back as “not valid”…am I doing something wrong?
