Looking for a way to impress friends and family with your frugal decor expertise?! This is the project for you! Cost? One little ol’ dollar. Time spent? Maaaaaybe an hour. It’s like the unicorn of the crafting world! This post is mostly photos because the tutorial itself is like 5 sentences long… it’s that simple.

Paper Garland title

Materials (affiliates for your convenience)
• an old book*
• hot glue gun
• circle punch (I used two different sizes to create this garland.)
• wire/ wire cutters
• yarn or twine
(*Before anyone gets upset that I’m punching holes in an old book, rest assured that this dictionary was wildly out of date… I checked and “bootylicious” was nowhere to be found.)

Step 1
Cut out circles with your circle punch.

each orb needs 3 circles

Step 2
Fold the paper circles in half.

Step 3
Glue two circles, pressing the halves together.

Step 4
Glue a third circle, again pressing the halves together to make a paper star/ sphere.

Step 5
Grab a length of wool and use the wire to make a needle (Fold in half and twist). String the yarn through the middle of each star/ sphere..

Aaaaand that would be it. This could look just as amazing with colorful paper or even paper that the kids have painted or scribbled all over! Again… so fast, so easy, so pretty.

I’m using this to decorate a holiday mantel that’s coming together over here, but the neutral of the old book pages means this *could* stay up year round! Just sayin’…

Thank You

Thanks so much Charlotte!! I’m still in shock that bootylicious isn’t in every dictionary. What is wrong with the world?? 😉 Make sure you check out Charlotte on her blog, Ciburbanity and on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest!
