DIY: Paper Wall Garland


Materials: 5 ft. long rope (from Home Depot or any home store); Colored, decorative paper (we opted for brown, sheer turquoise, metallic silver & a shiny white); Paperclips (or Christmas ornament hangers); Colorful fabric; 2 nails; 1 hammer

Step 1: Take one sheet of paper, and lay it out flat.
Step 2: Cut the sheet of paper into long, thin strips.
 
Step 3: Take each strip, and evenly bend them over your rope.
 
Step 4: Secure into place by twisting with a paperclip.
(Repeat Steps 2-4 until your rope is almost filled up) 
Step 5: For a more fun look, take some colorful fabric and cut it up into strips. (You can use an old t-shirt, bed sheet, or bag. I used a Free People shopping bag.)
Step 6: When you place your fabric on the rope, do not secure it with a paperclip. Use a string of fabric to tie it into place.
Step 7: Stick 1 nail through each end of the rope and hammer it into the wall.
…And you’re done!!
