Gather Your Materials

You will need:

  • Paper in rainbow colours (or paint white paper)
  • Scissors
  • Pen and ruler
  • Stapler (or glue)


Assemble Your Garland

Draw 7 lines, 3cm wide, using your pen and ruler

Cut all strips.

You will now have 7 strips of each colour.

Now cut each strip in half.

Take the first paper strip, loop it around to form a hoop.

Take your stapler and staple in the middle of the loop, where both ends of the paper strip meet.


Or you can use glue, but let it dry a bit before moving on to the next step

Now take a strip of the next colour. Slide it through the first hoop, loop around and staple again the the middle.

Once you have done a hoop of each colour, start again with your first colour. Carry on until you have used all your paper strips.
