Paperclip Garland

17 Dec

This is a fun craft to make with a group of people because each person can make a section and then the sections can be easily liked together.  We created a long garland like this to wind around a tree we decorated for Hospice.

Supplies: 

  1. Paperclips of various shapes and colors
  2. Variety of beads, sequins, jingle bells

Directions: 

  1. Slide beads, sequins and jingle bells through some of the paper clips.
  2. Link paperclips together to form a long garland.

You can dangle some paperclips from others and add decorations for a different look, as in top garland below.

Another idea is to use a paperclip garland to display cards!
