Step 1: Take your crepe paper, and cut 4-5 lengths that are 6′ long. I’m choosing to make a 6′ garland, but obviously you can make this garland as long or short as you’d like.
Step 2: Stack your crepe paper lengths on top of each other, and, using your sewing machine, sew down the length of your strips (I used a 1/4″ seam allowance).
Step 3: When you’re done, you’ll have this.
Step 4: Using your scissors, carefully cut slits in your sewn crepe paper (being careful not to snip through your stitches!) Separate your strips of crepe paper to make your garland fuller and add some dimension.
Step 5: Add any embellishments (I used foam letters to spell out “SHINE”, hang your garland, and admire . . .
Curious about the other two garlands? The top one is just different sizes of kraft paper sewn together, and the bottom is a piece of paper that I watercolored, let dry, then cut into 1″ circles and sewn together. So easy!
