A Pattern Happy Garland

Posted on December 18, 2018 by Christiana

Wallpaper Holiday Garland DIY | Hygge & West

Inspired by having wallpaper remnants and this post, Ola created her own garland this year, and well... you guessed it—we're in love! So, we wanted to share the step-by-step instructions on how to make your own in case you get the itch for some holiday crafting.

You will need: wallpaper scraps, ruler, pencil, scissors, stapler, and string.

Instructions:

Select pattern(s) for your ornaments—one pattern will be lovely, but we decided to mix and match. We used Pombal (Coral), Snow (Gold) and Arcade (Cayenne).

You will need 13 strips of paper for each ornament:
• 1 x 2” wide x 3” tall, folded in half lengthwise (that’s the very middle strip, the anchor)
• 2 x 1” wide x 4” tall (innermost layers)
• 2 x 1” wide x 5” tall (middle layers)
• 2 x 1” wide x 6” tall (outermost layers)

    Use a ruler and a pencil to mark the strips on the non-patterned side of the wallpaper. Cut out all the strips and arrange by length. (If you know how many ornaments you’d like to make, multiply the above numbers accordingly and get strip cutting out of the way.)

    For each ornament, line up and staple on one end all the strip pairs and the anchor strip going from longest to shortest to longest again. Make sure the patterned side is always facing outwards. You can glue the strip pairs together for easier assembly.

    Pinch all together and staple the other side of the strips.

    Link the ornaments together with a string. You can use a hot glue gun, but it couldn’t be located in the garage. Enjoy!
