Geometric Festive Garland DIY

It's the most wonderful time of the year again. In honour of the season this DIY is a festive garland tutorial. 

What you will need and how to DIY:

1. Your choice of paper or cardboard. I chose gold and black cardboard for something subtly festive.
2. Glue, both normal craft glue and hot glue and hot glue gun.
3. Scissors
4. Ruler to fold shape or if you have one, a scorer for thicker cardboard.
5. String.
6. Printed templates on normal paper.
Download the template HERE.

Firstly glue the template onto the back of the cardboard.

 Cut the shapes. For the cone shape, cut the long side zig zagged.

 Fold all the shapes along the black lines.

Using the hot glue gun, stick together the shapes with the tabs leaving one side unclosed.

Cut 6 10cm pieces strings. I used sticky tape on the ends the string for easy threading.

 Poke a small hole in end you want to hang the shape by. Thread the string through the hole and tie a knot on the end.

Tape down the string on the inside of the paper shape. Glue down the last side.
