With Diwali (an Indian Festival, Of lights ) around the corner , I really thought some Paper ornamentation should be Awesome to Adorn your house !
These Paper hangings are the Simplest thing in the World to make! :)
all u need is
- Stapler with Pins
- Strong Thread
(Could use Nylon, Or Thick Gold / Silver Threads)
- First Decide colors that u are going to use from your Quilling strips !
Make sure u use A few colors for the layers as it looks better that way!
(PS: this craft can be done By manually cutting strips out of Card paper , Handmade paper.)
- Now cut 2 strips in 11 cm , 2 in 9cm , 2 in 7 cm & 1 Strip 5 cm in length.
The shortest one comes in the centre ,
Next come the 7 cm strips one on each side of the Shortest Strip ,
n then 9 cm strips one on each side of the 7 cm strips, n so on
(More layers can be added , just increase length with 2-3 cm )
-Now Hold the tops of all the strips together, make sure they are flush,
then staple them together.
-Now line up the bottom edges on the opposite side,
so that they are flush too, and staple the end. Your paper lantern Ornament is ready !
(PS: U may cover the stapled Ends with a patterned Tape too, but we kept it simple.)
- Now all there is left to do is to Sew though the paper hangings Join them on a stick or a Ring On the top, side by side , with varied Lengths. so then it looks somthing like this !
So try it n, Knock your self out !!
