As I mentioned in an earlier post, there are 4 birthdays in my family in the month of March.
Three of our daughters and mine.
This year we are planning to celebrate all of them together with a tea party.
We are making this a very girl kind of thing with lots of frills and pretty decorations.
Last night I made some paper garlands for the event.
These were so simple to make.
I used card stock and a large hole punch to make the circles (you could cut the circles out by hand if you don't have a hole punch), then stitched them together with my sewing machine (you can also stitch them by hand if you don't have a sewing machine). I used upholstery thread to make it a bit stronger.
I strung these across the curtain rod.
I made another type of garland to drape across a chicken wire door that hangs on the wall in my dining room. I cut out the circles then using a regular size hole punch, made 2 holes in each circle to string ribbon through (they look like a big paper button). This would be a great project to do with your children.
I'm pretty pleased with the overall look and I love the pretty colors.
This was a fun project and the happy colors brightened my day.
Hope you have a bright and happy day too!
