It is the party season, and you have all of the food catered, entertainment arranged, and decorations set. Or, do you? The chair sashes look great against the elegant centerpiece, and the place settings are spot on. But, something is still missing. Perhaps a sparkly DIY garland?
Life of the Party
Get the party started with a sign that says “CHEERS” in great big letters that hangs over the buffet table or the punch bowl. This is a great craft project that creates some excitement for any party. In this DIY video instruction, we show you how to make a letter garland hang over the wall at your next party.
Here’s what you’ll need
Let’s Get Started
Step 1: Create your Templates.
Print out the message that you would like to hang as a garland. Please feel free to use our template. Tape this to the cardboard sheets.
Step 2: Cut the letters.
Using a razor blade, cut the letters from the cardboard.
Step 3: Attach the sequins.
Hot glue the sequin trim to the cardboard letters. For a clean edge, overlap some sequin material so you can fold over the edge.
Step 4: Repeat for all letters.
Step 5: Attach the cord.
At the backside of the letters, hot glue a piece of metallic cord so they are all attached.
Step 6: Hang your garland.
Leave plenty of cord at each end to hang your DIY garland. Let the party begin!
