Christmas Garland DIY – Here’s How to Hang Your Honeycombs

Hanging honeycomb balls is easy!

I am a self confessed Garland obsessive! I don’t feel at home unless there is a string of bunting or a garland adorning a wall/window/dresses/tree. I recently spotted a honeycomb garland in a shop for £24 and rushed home to make my own! It really is very easy, here is how:

You will need:

9 x 3″ Honeycomb Balls will make approximately 1.5m of garland
A length of Bakers Twine
Double-sided Sticky Tape

Step 1:   Cut your length of twine, ensure it is a little longer than you need the garland to be.

Step 2:   Make a loop at each end to enable you to hang the finished Garland neatly

Step 3:   Stick a smal piece of double sided tape to the card inside the Honeycomb and open the ball out. You can either cut the little hanging string off the honeycomb or lay it down insdide the ball out of site, carefully lay your twine inside the middle of the honeycomb and close the ball. There is no need to stick the twine down inside as the closed ball will hold it there quite firmly and it will also enable you to carefully move or alter the ball along the twine if necessary later.

Step 4:   Adjust the gaps by carefully moving the balls along the twine if necessary. Hang and Enjoy!

Cute Bunting DIY

I believe that bunting is the ultimate decoration! Whether it’s a party, celebration, event, BBQ, knees up, frankly there is no occasion that cannot be improved upon by a string of bunting.

Make easy bag bunting

We do have hand-made bunting in the shop, however when the mood takes me I also like to make my own. I have a knack of creating bunting out of anything, I have recycled allsorts into bunting; old jumpers, paper plates, baking cups, playing cards, old maps and books (my ‘dirty bunting’ as friends called it is infamous and made from unwanted copies of Fifty Shades of Grey!)

Kids Party Paper Decorations

My most recent bunting project is probably my easiest and quickest to date…Treat Bag Bunting!

You will need:

A selection of treat bags/party bags/sweet bags (12 bags make 3mtrs)
Ribbon or bias binding 1-1.5cm wide 3m long
A Sewing Machine

Simply sew the bags to the ribbon/binding, I sewed the bottoms of the bag so that they hung upside-down. Leave a gap of a bags width between your flags. Hang and enjoy!

Pretty Paper Decorations

Paper party decorations are pretty and whimsical. Use singly as a centrepiece or in larger groupings to make a pretty display, string them together to make a garland or mix up pom poms lanterns and honeycombs for an interesting textured look.
