Hi Everyone! I’m Jennifer from Town and Country Living and I’m honored to be here today at Jamie’s blog to share one of my favorite home decor craft projects with you. I’m a huge fan of garlands and buntings. In fact, when I saw Jamie’s spool and wool garland I was immediately smitten! Most garlands are easy to make and add whimsy to any room. What’s great about this paper fan garland is that you can use a variety of paper so you’ll always be able to make one in just the right color.
Here’s the instructions for making your own paper fan garland:
Using two strands of embroidery thread, tie two pages of folded paper together where you folded them in half. Knot well, and if desired, add a small dab of Mod Podge or other glue on the knot to keep it from becoming undone.
Add a small button or other decorative element to the center of the paper fan. Use†Mod Podge or a hot glue gun to adhere the button to the center of the paper fan circle. Press down firmly to secure, but not too hard. You don’t want to smash the folded paper.
Attach the paper fan circles to a piece of vintage lace, seam binding, or even twine. You can use a hot glue gun to secure the paper fans onto the lace or twine, or use embroidery thread to carefully sew them in place.

Special thanks to Jamie for having me here today!
