Paper Flower Lights Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

Have you noticed Christmas items already popping up in stores? Although it is still a bit early, I like being able to use some of the items in non-Christmas ways, like this paper flower garland made from small white Christmas lights! This garland is very multi-purpose: you can make it for a party, home decor, or decorate your tree with it.

Paper is definitely my favorite medium! Here is a paper project you can customize in so many ways and you probably already have all the materials. These blocks are great to have on hand for baby showers, birthday parties, holidays, etc. You can use them over and over again, just put useful letters on them and make them in a color palette you love. This pink variety would decorate an adorable second birthday for a little girl!
