Garden parties call for many things: food, drink, music, good company and a nicely laid table. They also call for some colourful decorations. What would a summer party be without some colourful decorations?
So, I thought what could be better than a garland made of paper birds which gently move in the wind – even if you’re stuck with a less-than-stellar UK summer, this will make you think you’re on some tropical island. Well, nearly!
here's what you'll need...
- Crêpe paper in various colours
- A5 craft paper in various colours – one sheet for each bird
- Cutting mat
- Craft knife
- Single-hole punch
- Neutral sewing yarn and a sewing needle
- Parcel string
- Bird template sourced from: Charcoal and Crayons and printed on a sheet of A4 paper at 170% with the print setting on “borderless”
