DIY – Cheap Christmas Garland

20141214_191626

Of course we visited IKEA before X-mas to get some gifts and.. ooops.. buy a new sofa :] There were many pretty decorations as always. I have seen these hard paper coasters, which costed $1 and bought them, because I thought, I could invent some decoration with them. And yes, it happened. I created a garland.20141214_193101(0)

It takes only twenty minutes to create it.
What you need: Coasters, 1,5 m long ribbon, punch pliers set (optional)

Process:

1. First align the coasters on the table to see how do you want them to hang on the ribbon. Because this set exactly contains 10 coasters and 6 of them are striped.

2. If you want to use punch pliers and go with the ribbon through the coaster, make holes just in the middle of the upper part. I used three different shapes and colors to make it look more interesting. Later I realized, it doesn’t matter, because when the ribbon covers it, you almost don’t see it ^^

3. Cut a ribbon and if you want to go through the eyelets, just simply put a part of ribbon together and twist.20141214_19043520141214_190511

4. Go with the twisted end through the eyelet and then cover the top with the loop you just created.20141214_190554 20141214_190846

Tip: If you use a ribbon with a rough edge as I used, you can just make one loop around the upper part and you don’t even need to use any kind of eyelets or holders.20141214_193043
