Morning craft: paper garland!

Inspired by this etsy shop, which I found via decor8‘s page on decorating ideas, I decided to try my hand at making my own paper garland.

So I sat down and cut out about 100 circles from 10 different colors of paper.  I folded them and cut them to be even semicircles, and then took some twine and started gluing in a random color pattern.

I ended up with quite a long garland, which I decided to hang up in the living room above the couch for now.  I like having a little something up on the wall – our walls are still so bare!  And the best thing is, it was a super-easy project!  I think it would be perfect for a birthday party or something.

Speaking of DIY projects, that white board on the floor is a piece of wood we had leftover from Tobi’s amazing handmade trash can.  (What, I didn’t post pictures of that?  I’ll have to show you soon!  It does make an appearance in our home tour video, if you don’t remember what I’m talking about!)

Tobias drilled a few holes in the corners and used some rope to attach it securely to the chair (& it’s removable, which is also great).  What’s it for?  His cello!  That way, the spike on the bottom doesn’t poke holes in our nice wooden floor while he plays!  Pretty cool, right?
