I love sewing with paper – it’s my new favorite go-to decor project. Here’s my 30 minutes or less Halloween paper garland.
I started with some orange paper – left over from when I thought I was going to make my own wedding invitations – ha! This paper has beautiful strands of colorful fibers in the paper.
I cut 10 squares into 4 x 4 inch pieces.
Using India ink, I painted designs on the pieces of paper.
I sewed them together, corner to corner. Be sure to leave plenty of extra thread at each end to affix your garland to whatever item you choose. I always recommend sewing a test strip of paper, before launching into your project.
This is a cheap and easy way to decorate for any occasion. If you do not fancy yourself a painter or drawer, this would be just as easy to do with clip art.
In other news, a big fresh bottle of vanilla showed up, courtesy of my in-laws! Hooray, it is safe to bake again.
