We have a very, merry FIRST (un)birthday coming up and being that I'm a total geek, I absolutely had to go with an Alice in Wonderland Theme. No, it's not why we named our daughter Alice, but yes it worked out perfectly! So we are throwing a small party for her, coming up very quickly. I have a ton of things that I'm planning to make for this party and one of those is this DIY Card Garland.
Since cards play such a huge roll in the second half of Disney's movie, I couldn't have been happier when I found several decks of cards at our local church rummage sale a couple months ago. I scooped them up and now here we are. In addition to playing cards, you'll also need Red Baker's Twine and a ⅛ Inch Hole Punch.
- The first thing I did was cut the twine to the length that I wanted the garland to be.
- Next, I punched a hole near the top of the card.
- After that, I threaded the twine through the hole from the back side of the card and tied it into place.
- For all subsequent cards, I made sure they were around the same distance and tied them each into place.
This project was super easy and perfect to do while I watched bad TV. It came together really quickly and was pretty cheap as well. Here are a few photos of the finished garland:
I think you could totally get creative about where you put the holes in the cards and how you set them to hang. I can't wait to show off more details of A's party and will add a link to the recap after the party to see all of the results.
