Below I saw this pretty, delicate Christmas garland in the latest Crate and Barrel catalog, and I thought what a cute idea to remix their design from 2D to 3D.
(Note: I checked the Crate and Barrel website, and it’s all sold out. They no longer make or sell this for the season.)
If you’re looking to add a little glitter glam to your Christmas tree, check out the tutorial below to make a personalized, color-themed glitter circle paper garland for your Christmas tree.
- Glitter card stock paper (used red, gold, blue)
- Colored card stock paper (used cream, green, red, navy blue, teal, turquoise)
- Sewing machine
- Metallic glitter thread
- Circle puncher
- Plastic container (used old apple container)
Step 1. Cut out several circles with the hole puncher.
Step 2. Organize and layout pattern.
I used several different patterns, mixing and matching, until I organized them in a pretty pattern. Stacked in groups of four, each circle piece will add that 3D element.
Step 3. Slowly stitch circles together.
Start with one stack of circles, stitch down the center. Once you reach the bottom, place the next stack of circles and continue stitching down the center. Follow your colored pattern of stacked circles until you stitched the last set of circles.
Step 4. After stitching your garland together, fold the circles at the seam, open them up and….
Step 5. Voila! Project Complete!
That was sew easy, right? You’ve added a perfect personal handmade, homemade garland for your Christmas tree this year.
