6 Easy DIY Paper Party Decorations

DIY Multicolored Tissue Garland

We’re only a cou­ple of days into the New Year, and we’ve already hit that point: stir-crazy. It prob­a­bly doesn’t help that the entire coun­try has been in the grip of a “polar vor­tex,” caus­ing temps to plum­met! So, find­ing things to do inside is becom­ing a high pri­or­ity at our household.

Plus, we have a birth­day party to pre­pare for this week­end. As a blog­ger I always feel a lit­tle guilty when I admit we’re hav­ing the party some­where other than our home. But our home is in such a state of chaos, you wouldn’t want to come over here!

Maybe we could make a gar­land to drape around the lovely kids art stu­dio that’s host­ing our lit­tle shindig. That seems doable, right? Even if you don’t have a party com­ing up, these crafts—including the garland—are a per­fect quick fix on these cold days.
