DIY Dot Garland

So. As you saw in last week’s Baby Sprinkle Recap I made super cure and easy DIY Dot Garlands and hung them around our living room.

When we began planning this Sprinkle, I knew I wanted to make a pretty and easy decorative garland for an upcoming event. As always, I went over to Pinterest and found this tutorial from Glorious Treats. Easy, pretty, cost efficient = SOLD! So I got to work.

This tutorial shows you how to make the sweetest DIY Dot Garland- perfect for any special party or event, or even just for decorating your home. It's quick, easy, cost-efficient and so darn cute!

To make this DIY Dot Garland, you will need:

  • String (I used bakers twine)
  • Craft glue
  • A hole punch for the size of the circles you want (I supposed you could trace them and hand cut, but that was way too much work for me!)
  • Cardstock for in whatever colors you want.

After punching my circles, I sat down and made a small line with the craft glue, once I got the hang of it I would do a few at a time:

Then I would press the string gently into the glue to attach, again I did a few at a time (work smarter, not harder!):

Eventually, my table looked like this:

The were dry within 30 minutes but I let them hang out for a few hours to be safe, though more out of laziness.

This project was super simple and as you saw in the photos, totally fit the event they were used for.

      Thank you- they fit in perfectly with our sprinkle theme (and we found the most perfect dotted plates and napkins which matched perfectly- we couldn’t believe it!).
