I'm thrilled to be hosting a workshop today for Darling Magazine and wanted to share the DIY here too! While this workshop is holiday themed, with a simple switch of the color palette the tassel garland (top) and bunting (bottom) can be used for party decor any time of year!
For step by step instruction on how to make the tassel garland, check out our DIY: Paper Garland video (fast forward to 1:00 if you'd like to skip the dot garland DIY). And here's a download for geometric bunting instructions and a printable alphabet template. We've included the entire alphabet from A to Z and threw in some fun symbols too so that you can make your bunting say whatever you'd like! Have fun!!
You may remember last year when we did a collab with Chandra from Oh Lovely Day to create her moving announcements? Well, that project inspired the entire Geometrica papergoods suite! So when Chandra contacted me to do a guest post while was settling in with her new baby, I knew that Geometrica party decor DIYs were in order! There are free printables and full instructions available for download on my guest post for Oh Lovely Day!
Add a little twinkle to a summertime soirée with flower garland twinkle lights! All you need are 3 easy ingredients — cupcake liners (yes! those are cupcake liners!!), scissors and a strand of LED twinkle lights. The simple step-by-step instructions are featured on Inspired by This!
