Use pretty scrapbook papers

Start by going through your scrapbook papers, and decide what colors you would like to use. Since I was making this for my son’s room, I went with greens and blues for him.

Use an inexpensive circle paper punch


Take your circle punch, and start punching out the circles.

It may be easier to cut your paper into strips that are a little wider than your punch before you start.

Remember, you’ll be using two circles per 1 finished circle, so you’ll need a lot!

Here's the other side of the two layered circle

Take two of your circles and place them back to back.  Here I used two of the same, but you could also use different ones for a more random pattern.

Start sewing the circles together


Take your first circle set, and run it through your sewing machine. When you get to the end, sew 3 to 5 stitches before you insert the next circle set.

This leaves some space between each circle. Keep adding circles until you are happy with the length of your garland.
