Easy & Fast Easter Garland Tutorial

EASTER RIBBON GARLAND TUTORIAL

Decorate your Easter celebration or your next party or event with a cheerful,  easy and fast ribbon garland to match your theme.  It will only take you about 20 to 30 minutes at the most to cut all your ribbon and tie them up since minimal assembly is needed, this garland is made from simple loop knots — no glue or sewing needed!  Let’s get started-

Here’s What You’ll Need:

– Twine or Jute String (length depends on how long you want your garland)

30-35 ft. of Ribbon (different designs/several rolls)

– Scissors

How to Step-by-Step Directions:

Step 1. – Measure a strand of twine to the desired length of your garland.

Step 2. – Cut each piece of ribbon to measure 16-20″ depending on your desired length. Use different color ribbons to match the décor of your event or space.

Step 3. – Fold each piece of ribbon in half, lay it around the twine, and pull the cut strands through the loop to create a loose knot (see image #1 and #2).

Step 4.- Repeat step three for all remaining ribbons, alternating colors to create a pattern (see image #3).

Step 5. – Once all ribbons are tied, trim the ends if needed with scissors. Hang the garland to decorate a party table or kid’s room!

You can even keep this garland and reuse it for future parties or room décor.   If you make one in plain pastel colors with no Easter text printed on your ribbon, these would look stunning in a nursery, hanging across the front of a baby’s crib or in a little girls room hanging across her bed headboard. If you want to get your home ready for spring or need some favor boxes, a banner or anything for your Easter celebration- stop by any of my shops by clicking the links below.

The last day to order with first class shipping for receipt by Easter is Wednesday, April 5th and with priority shipping the last day to order is next Tuesday, April 11th.

10 Easy & Cheap Party Table Backgrounds

10 DIY EASY & CHEAP TABLE BACKDROPS

Today I am excited to share the easiest party table backdrop you can create- even if you have no crafty skills.  Plus, its CHEAP!  Who does not love cheap and stunning?  If you can open a package of paper plates and roll out some tape- you can do this! Literally, that is all you need- plates and tape.  No need for instructions here, I think you will get the gist of how to put these backgrounds together, simply from the photos. So, here are ten amazingly easy paper plate backgrounds to install at your next party-

Let’s start with super easy!  These two backdrops above only required a few plates.  They kept it simple by arranging them randomly and spreading them out on the wall. I love the simplicity of this party backdrop but also how fast it would be to put up.

Next up are easy rows of square plates – start with your lowest row, just above your table first, and line them up in perfect rows above. Bam! Simple and fast. Use all the same color or mix it up with alternating colors of square plates.

Same concept as with the square plates, but instead, use round plates.  This one above has overlapped each silver plate slightly to give it a more scalloped and 3D appearance. I could so see this in green and blue for a Little Mermaid themed party- doesn’t that remind you of ocean waves and mermaid scales?! It’s whatever your theme is- go with it!

This white plate background really makes a statement and the use of different alternating colors of paper behind it (use small 8″ x 8″ squares of paper) or you could buy a cheap large vinyl polka dot tablecloth and simply cover the large dots with plates to get the same backdrop of multi colors behind your plates. Plus you won’t have to peel tape off your wall- just tape your plates to the tablecloth and toss it when the party is over!

I’ll leave you with some sunshine.  This one took a bit longer as each plate has been fringed around the edges.  Yes, this can be done easily with fringe scissors. . . you can actually buy these fancy scissors at a local craft store.  They are amazing and you can diy so many other creative party decorations with them.  The added paper plate banner on the front of the table really pulls this whole setup together for a cheerful summer party!

So, what are you waiting for- go get some bright paper plates and design your own party table backdrop!
