After the paper cut out I did of a relaxing person the other day, I wanted to make some other paper cut outs. The inspiration of this cutout came from something I saw online. I free hand drew the picture and cut it out using xacto knife.
Few posts back I had mentioned that I had a pile of crepe papers, left over from a rainbow Birthday party. Some of the pictures from that party can be seen here. I was trying to use up all the left over crepe paper by making different kinds of flowers, wreaths/signs and garlands. I am almost there using up all those papers and I like it when I get to make these pretty things with all the leftover stuff.
Today I made these beautiful garland with the crepe paper.
- Crepe Paper strips
- Needle and thread
- Take a needle and thread. Tie a knot at the end of the thread and then make running stitch in the middle of the crepe paper strip through the length of the strip. The length of the strip will depend on how long you want your garland to be.
- As you go along pull the string,so that the crepe paper strip starts to gather. While pulling also twist the crepe paper a little.
- Do it for the length of the garland and tie a knot at the end.
That's it. Here are some more pictures of the colorful garland.
