DIY Saint Patrick Day Garland

This project is ridiculously easy to do. But I’m so thrilled with the pop of color it has added to our living room. I was able to complete this project in under a half an hour — so easy anyone can do it.

Materials:

  • Unfinished wood banners
  • Thin twine
  • Crafting tape or other decorated tape
  • Scissors

Just a quick note. You can find unfinished wood banners at your local craft shop or online below. Also, I chose to use decorated Scotch tape because it is thicker than typical crafting tape.

Directions:

Step 1: Line up the tape along the top of the wood banner. Don’t worry about perfect edges. Leave some tape off of the sides.

Step 2: Alternate the decorated tape to create the pattern you’d like.

Step 3: Once you’ve covered the entire banner, trim off the edges of the tape with a pair of scissors.

Step 4: Poke a hole in the tape with a dull pencil to create an opening for the twine.

Step 5: Weave the twine through the holes and tada! You have yourself a pretty Saint Patrick’s Day Garland you made yourself.
