Today I’m going to be showing you how to make this simple and easy paper plate Christmas Garland to help you decorate for the holidays. This is a great decoration along the stage at your Church’s ward Christmas Party! It’s cheap and easy too!
Here is my Christmas Party Decorating Ideas Post where you can find more great decorating ideas.
Here’s what you’ll need to make the paper plate garland….
- Paper Plates (get the cheap/light weight kind)
- Red Spray paint
- A Box for spray painting in (I use a diaper box with the flaps cut off)
- Stapler or Tape
- Tape for hanging
Start off by painting half the paper plates you’ll need for your garland. Just spray paint and set aside to let dry.
Once all your plates are dry line them up and staple them together at the edges or use tape on the back.
Then use some packing tape to tape it to your stage edge.
It’s that simple!
You can also make some cute peppermint candy paper plates (which would be cute to put cookies inside of for delivering holiday treats to friends, neighbors, or teachers).
Using the same supplies simply cut out a candy shape like this…
Then add tape to one side and attach it to another plate.
Then spray paint, allow to dry and remove the pattern piece.
You can also use the pattern piece and attach it to another plate to get the same effect!
