DIY Paper Garland

Paper_Garland_Spring_Flowers (1)

Every season I redecorate my living room to welcome the new season. This Spring I really drawn to shades of coral mixed with linen and grey.  I have been wanting to do a spring paper flower garland to decorate my mantle for a while and thought the colors would tie in perfectly with the coral tones in the pillows and accessories from around the room. Stay tuned for my complete living room makeover.

This garland is made from flowers and leaves in gold, mandarin, azalea, botanic and fairway colors, or you can browse to pick your own colors but just make sure to choose text weight. I cut 15 of each flower design. You will find the svg cut file and PDF below.  I also added a few leaves that were leftover from my paper boxwood wreath from this post. That’s the great thing about this garland, you can add or omit any parts of it and it will still look great. Perhaps try this project using shades of white for a classic backdrop at a wedding ceremony, or bold patterned papers for a great children’s party decoration. All the flowers are simply looped around the green ribbon strand and glued into place. The leaves are then dotted in between the blooms and glued into place. Pin it across your window, drape it along your mantel or hang it vertically down each side of your entrance way. Whatever you choose to do with you paper garland, happy making and enjoy! You can find a tutorial for each flower on my site by clicking here.~ Lia

    I will enjoy cutting out these flowers. I must order metallic papers from Paper-paper.com. I keep trying to make things with paper I have on hand but think any project of yours I make will come out so much better using correct type and weight of papers. Can hardly wait to get them so I can start making flowers for gifts for Mother’s day. Thank you so much for sharing all your glorious projects and providing excellent instructions. Altho I have to manually cut out each and every one I enjoy making them anyway. For some reason I enjoy cutting things out. Just finished cutting out many camellia flowers and leaves. I’ll have quite a procession of flowers to make. Hard for me to stop to do mundane chores like laundry and cleaning floors and bathrooms, would much rather be creating.
    I also like to change decorations, etc. in home for new seasons. I enjoy looking at refreshed rooms. Besides it gives me something new to do. When I cleaned our bathroom today I switched out several things in room for decorations, love how it looks. I get bored with things as is in too short a time so this keeps me quite busy rearranging and making new decorations. I’m not a senior that puts things in one place and that’s where they stay forever, too boring for me, need to be busy with something all the time. Watching tv for me means tracing things, cutting flowers/leaveout or looking for new inspirations in magazines. Quite often I go back thru how to zines to get new ideas or make something I’ve seen in my own version, sometimes using just pieces of what I see for my own.
    Have wonderful weekend Thanks for continuing to share your wonderful creations with us all.

    Hello I just purchased all the paper from the link you provided. I know that you cut 15 flowers of each design. How long was the garland you created with the amount of flowers you used per design? The garland is really beautiful and will be used for an upcoming welcome home/ baby shower Luau =)

    Hi, just love your paper garland. I don’t seem to be able to download the file though. Can I get it any other way? Thanks, Susan Parr

      Hi Susan, I just checked both links and they seem to be working properly, can you tell me what might be the problem you are experiencing? If you cannot use SVG, then you would want to grab the PDF and hand cut your items.
