DIY fun A4 garland

I saw this great idea of making a garland with A4 prints. So when my sister was having a party with an English theme, I knew I wanted to make this personalisable garland. 

What you need:

  • Fabric. Cut into pieces which are at least 5 cm wider on all sides than the A4 paper.
  • A4 paper.
  • Images. I used images found on Pinterest but you could also use photos, which would be fun for an anniversary or birthday.
  • A stapler
  • Ruler and pencil
  • Ribbon. 


Here is what you do:

  1. Print your images on white A4 paper. Sort the images by them being horizontal or vertical. I like to make two different garlands, one for the horizontal images and one for the vertical images. 
  2. Measure 6 cm from the top and place your A4 image there. Use the stapler to staple the image to the fabric. By measuring the centimetres from the top you make sure all the images will be the same height. 
  3. Decide in which order you want your images, and place them in this order. Now get your ribbon out, save 20 cm of ribbon for the beginning and end. Folding over the first 2 cm around your ribbon and staple the fabric to the ribbon. Separate the images by 2 cm to create a playful look.
  4. And voila your garland is finished.
