DIY: Crepe Paper Flower Garland

Much like colorful trays and tasty appetizers, there’s nothing that adds life to a table setting quite like a decorative garland. Spruce up your next fete by following this simple flower garland tutorial, and watch our guide to summertime entertaining for more great ideas!

What you’ll need:

Scissors
Colorful crepe paper cut in 5x7 inch rectangles
Twine

Directions:

Step 1: Neatly stack four sheets of crepe paper together vertically on a flat surface.

Step 2: Decide on the length of your garland, then cut a piece of twine of the same length.

Step 3: Accordion fold the stack of paper, making sure both of the short ends are facing the same direction when finished. This will be the front of the flower.

Step 4: Use scissors to diagonally cut each corner of the folded stack, so that each end comes to a point.

Step 5: Leaving some extra room at the end, tie the twine around the folded stack so that the knot is facing the back of the flower.

Step 6: Fan out one end of the stack, gently separating each layer of crepe paper. Repeat on the other end and shape the layers as needed to create a full-looking flower.

Step 7: Repeat steps 1 through 6 for each flower. Spread out evenly along the twine, leaving room at the end for hanging. We recommend making one flower per foot of twine.

Step 8: Let the party begin!
