Paper Dots Garland

Here is one of our favorite DIYs of all time. These are really easy to make and they only requires 2 supplies! They’re also really versatile: you can hang them up as a garland, spread them out on a table as a centerpiece, or attach them to balloons. Click through below for instructions!

Materials: Crepe paper and scissors

Step 1: Cut off a 1.5″ piece off a fold of crepe paper.
Step 2: Grab the end section. Hold the paper still with one hand while twisting the paper two times with the other. The paper will fold around your fingers. Give a quick pinch to the fold to flatten and shape each little section. Repeat as evenly as you can.

Each garland takes about 5 minutes to make, so it’s a great activity to do while watching a movie!

    I made these for a party a few years ago after seeing them on your site.

    Make it a little easier and make the lengths endless by just using crepe paper streamers! They work just as well and you can just go and go!

    This is such a great idea! Such a fun and easy way to inject some color into an event. AND it’s a great way to get some family members/helpers who are new to decorating involved in prep for a party!
