Here’s What You’ll Need To Create This Sparkly Garland

  • Blade cutters
  • Scissors
  • 5×7 Corrugated Cardboard Sheets
  • Washi Tape
  • Metallic Cord
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue
  • Cheers Template


How To Create The Perfect Party Decoration

Step 1: Create Your Templates.

First, print out the message that you would like to hang as a garland. Feel free to use our template! Tape this to your corrugated cardboard sheets.


Step 2: Cut The Letters. 

Next, cut out your letters using a sharp razor blade. 


Step 3: Attach The Sequins. 

Finally, attach your sparkles using hot glue and sequin trim. An easy trick to get a nice, clean edge is to overlap some sequin material and fold over your edge. 


Step 4: Repeat For All The Letters. 


Step 5: Attach The Cord.

At the backside of the letters, hot glue a piece of metallic cord so they are all attached. 


Step 6: Hang Your Garland.

Leave plenty of cord at each end to hang your DIY garland. Let the party begin!
