Make a paper leaves garland in 30 minutes

Once the end of the year celebration are over, I just want the winter to be over too! Obviously with this chilly weather,  it’s not gonna happen anytime soon! So I just made a little jungle nook to help me wait until summer time! This paper leaves garland is very simple to make, you just need color paper sheets (dark green, mint green and beige), a pair of scissor, a pencil and some glue!

Fold the sheet in the middle lenght wise and draw the shape of a half leaf, a small line for the stem and half round for the leaf.

Cut along the line.

Using the scissors, make V notches in the leaf, starting from the stem. If you don’t feel confident enough to cut directly, you can draw the shapes with a pencil first and then erase the lines once you are finish.


Make a all bunch of leaves! To make it fastest, you can fold and cut several sheets together.

Put some glue on the leaf stem and attach it with an second one, keep gluing leaves together to make the garland.

Attach the garland on the wall using a pushpin at each end.

It looks better if you have several garlands that overlap. And done! It’s a really quick project to make, so it’s perfect for a party or as a temporary decor!
