Hello again! It's Christine from Pure Joy Events. You may remember the Anthropologie inspired tutorials that I shared on Bird's Party - the Vellum Garland and Ombre Paint Stick Backdrop. When I saw this gorgeous Anthropologie window display on Black Friday, well of course I had replicate it!

Here's my version of the Scroll Garland (I made up that name by the way). Oh how lovely they would look as a backdrop during the holiday season (Hanukkah perhaps?). Change up the look by draping them horizontally.

Most likely, you already have the materials on hand:

* 12" x 12" cardstock (I used Recollections cool water cardstock from Michael's)
* large paper clips
* paper cutter
* stapler
* glue stick

Step 1: Cut the cardstock into 1 1/2" strips.
Step 2: Make a loop with a strip and secure to a center strip ("the spine") with a paper clip. Attach loops in various shapes and sizes.
Step 3: Pinch the area secured by the paper clip with one hand. Carefully remove the paper clip with the other hand, then staple.
Step 4: To lengthen the garland, simply staple another strip to the end of the center strip.

Step 5: Continue to add loops until desired length is achieved.
Step 6: Glue small strips of paper over the staples.

  16. I am trying this out as we speak! Any tips for how to hang these? They seem a little heavy for fishing line and scotch tape.

  17. Not sure how they hooked it up on Anthropologie, but you may wanna try a more solid string and a hook to your surface if you can? I'm thinking push pins may work too, but they will again leave a mark on the surface.

  18. How many sheets of cardstock did you use? I am using 8.5 x 11 inch sheets, and cutting each sheet into 10 strips. I bought 250 sheets so I will have about 2500 strips. Think that's enough to border an average bedroom?

    1. Hi Rachel, it will all depend how long you make each garland too ;)
      She used one 12 x 12 inch sheet per colored section
