I love making garlands. They are festive, fun and easy to make. They make a great gift and you can customize them really easy. In our house stars, rockets and spaceships are a favorite, so I made a garland in this theme but you can choose whatever you fancy. Anything goes!
- Cutting board
- Scalpel/blade (or scissors)
- Stamps (I made my own, but you can use any you like, preferably symmetrical)
- Ink pad
- Good quality craft Paper
- Needle and thread & a cord
Cut out your prints with a scalpel and print the back too.
Take two identical prints.
In the first print,
you cut a vertical line from center to top,
in the second print from centre down.
Fold your cut out prints together.
The easiest way is to hang a cord in the right room and on the right place where the garland is supposed to be.
I used a fancy knitted cord and I used a shiny thread, both pale blue.
Assemble together & done!
