TUTORIAL: Anthropologie Inspired Scroll Garland - Perfect for Hanukkah!

Wednesday, December 05, 2012C Riches

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.

Anthropologie Inspired Scroll Garland - Perfect for Hanukkah!

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.
