Color-Blocked Circle Garland Backdrop

Looking for a last-minute party decoration? Hang a series of vertical paper garlands in pretty pastel colors. It is easy to assemble (and even easier to impress your guests).

  1. Punch out several circles from cardstock, keeping the same quantity per color.
  2. For a portable garland, use a dowel as a top rail! Using the Glue Gun, glue a row of circles to the dowel so that the tabs line up in a straight row.
  3. Assemble your garland strands. If wanting to achieve the color-blocking effect depicted above, the tabs should be facing down with your bottom color exposing the tabs.
  4. Attach the garland strands to the dowel.
