We are always looking for new and chic ways to decorate for the holidays, so when the fabulous Sarah of Tomfo sent us her unique take on classic Christmas lights we couldn’t have been more excited! This fun, simple and stylish DIY would be a perfect way to add a little bit of sparkle to your holiday decor!
Check out these quick and easy steps to create your own gorgeous Christmas Tree Garland, using a string of lights and a free printable!
Gather your supplies:
I set of battery operated lights with round bulbs
10 X A4 sheets of 200gsm card
3m hooks to hang
How to make your Christmas Tree Paper Garland:
It’s super easy, simply cut a circle out of the template using the dotted lines as guide.
Now, cut the circle in half.
With the straight edge of the semi circle on the left, fold over as shown below to approx 3cm away from the top point. (Use the black dot as a guide)
Then fold back across the other way as shown in the last pic.
Next, fold back across again, then tuck the last piece under.
Glue the pieces down with a glue stick.
(I found it easy to unfold, then glue the undersides.)
My string lights had 20 lights so I repeated the steps above to make 20 trees.
Now you’re ready to assemble!
Punch a hole in the top of each tree, (NB: Use a 2 hole punch it has better leverage.)
Untwist the globe from the lights, and push it through the hole at the top.
Then twist the light back on.
Repeat for all 20 trees.
These are battery operated, so you can place them anywhere… no need for a powerpoint.
You can also thread with ribbon and add a paper star on the top.
There is also a star included on the printable if you prefer or do not have any lights.
I love the lights though….. it’s all about the lights at Christmas!
You can never have too many lights and garlands at Christmas!
My next guest post will be a free printable for New Year’s Eve, so don’t forget to drop by and check it out!
I’m thrilled to be here, thanks for having me guys,
Live with love,
Sarah Preston…. Tomfo
