DIY decorations – for free!

November 28, 2011 by Lauren

I used some pattern scissors instead of regular ones. It took just a bit more time but I like the way it looks a lot more!

Once I had some cut, I started hot gluing the papers into paper chains. You could use staples I guess, but I had a lot of hot glue lying around that has never been used. We tried elmers liquid glue and it took years to dry. Hot glue was super fast. I had tons of help – I made “girls night” friends get into cutting and hot gluing for me. HaPaper chains from scrapbook paper that was going to be thrown away

My favorite paper chains… the maps!

The end result? Awesome. Also, very hard to photograph. We hung them up all over the ceiling and down the walls and in front of the windows.
