In this article: This easy book page bunting garland makes a lovely decor statement. It can add character to a Christmas tree, hanging in a window, or above artwork.
It seems a little late in the game to be posting a DIY for Christmas decorating, but this is one that is no way limited to using only at Christmas time! It’s super quick and easy and adds a little fun and whimsy into any space.
Easy Book Page Bunting Garland
Here’s the supplies you’ll need:
- An old paperback book (I chose one with old, yellowing pages. It makes it a little more “rustic” feeling)
- good glue
- yarn or string
- Carefully tear the pages out of the book a few at a time.
- Fold the pages in half lengthwise.
- Figure out how big you want the bunting triangles and make a little triangle template.
- Place the triangle template on the folded book page with the widest part touching the fold and trace.
- Stack a whole bunch of folded book pages together and cut them all at once.
- Place the fold of the triangle against the string and glue the pointed ends together.
7. Keep folding, cutting, and gluing until you have a garland as long as you want.
8. Knot each end of the string into a loop and hang on a nail.
You’ve done it! Good for you!:)
- String the garland around the Christmas tree for a rustic farmhouse look.
- Hang above and around an old window frame on the wall.
- Add twinkle lights behind them in the windows.
- Hang in a doorway.
