Computers are a great invention of the humankind. But sometimes we even forget how our handwriting looks. That’s why this Monday we decided to start the week from sweet memories of our childhood – making paper garlands with our own hands. Remember how it used to be – colored paper, a hole punch, a set of marker-pens, a reel of thread, glue… Now nothing much has changed in the technology except for the greater diversity of ideas. So, if you feel like creating something with your own hands in the near future, have a look at this post!

Paper garland – a stylish piece of home décor

What do you think about origami? In fact, any handmade paper craft can be turned into an element of a garland – Japanese cranes, little glued houses and just common golden cardboard stars. All you need to do to make your paper piece look stylish, gorgeous and up-to-date is to hang it not in the style of a kindergarten matinee, but in the way qualified decorators of the 21st century do – on a few threads, equally-spaced, but on multiple levels.
