Pretty paper decorations

I love summer! We are preparing for the hot weather predicted for next week by making these pretty paper decorations. They are very easy to make. I made mine out of patterned paper designed for origami. You can use any paper you fancy.

For each of these decorations you need a sheet of A4 paper, some paper pins, a hole punch and scissors. First cut the sheet of paper in half.

Making paper decorations for the garden

Cut the paper into strips, about 1 inch thick. You will need about 8 strips of paper for each decoration.

Punch holes at either end, then put your paper pins through.

Gently separate out the strips of paper into a ball shape.

The decorations look lovely in a basket or hung on ribbons in the garden. Can’t wait for the garden party! Jane
