Punched Paper DIY Garland


  • Vintage wallpaper or scrapbook paper of your choice
  • Thin cardboard or posterboard
  • Pretty twine
  • Glue stick or spray adhesive
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Paper punches or diecuts
  • Paper hole punch
  • Glitter glue (optional)


  1. Apply a thin layer of spray adhesive to a piece of cardboard or posterboard. Lay your decorative scrapbook paper on top and smooth it down. Repeat on the flipside. This is the easy option if your diecut machine is strong enough to cut through cardboard. If it isn't, you will have to cut two paper diecut pieces and one piece of cardboard and glue them together.

  2. Lay diecuts of your papers down on your work table pretty side down. Space them apart equally. 
  3. Put a dot of hot glue in the center and lay a long length of twine down so it is secured by the glue. Place a second diecut on top with an additional dot of hot glue.

Easy! I love the vintage scrapbook paper. You can also use gift wrappers as an alternative. A very nice garland to put around the fireplace.
