Let’s get to the DIY Origami Paper Garland Tutorial now!
What you’ll need:
Tree branch with all bark removed (or a piece of wooden doweling)
Cut your origami paper into 1.5 x 1.5 inch squares.
Using the needle and thread, puncture a small hole in the corner of one of the squares. Do the same in the opposite corner so the squares are hanging diagonally. Continue to do this until each thread is full, mixing the colours as you go. String a different amount of origami squares on each thread to create some depth. At the end of each length of thread you’ll need to tie a knot around the last square of origami paper.
Tie each piece of garland to the wooden doweling. You can place a small amount of glue at each string to hold it in place if you prefer.
To hang, tie a piece of thread on each end of the branch, creating a handle.
Hang it on the wall and you’re set!! How beautiful is this piece of art?? Simple yet colourful and impactful. This garland is sure to brighten the celebration. If you loved the colours in this craft, take a look at theseColour Shift Summer Coasters, add to your colourful event!
