DIY: Paper Coaster Garland

Written by Kathleen Ballos of  Snowdrop & Co

Recently I’ve been inspired by vintage paper coasters—there are so many gorgeous designs, especially some of the floral-patterned ones. After browsing for what must have been ages, I finally picked out a few sets to use for this DIY garland. Some of the coasters can get pricey, so I mixed in some plain and patterned card stock circles cut to match. This is such a simple project to do, but doesn’t it make a big impact? I can’t get over how striking the coasters are!

Steps:

1. Use the width of your doorframe to decide how many vertical garlands you want – I made six strings with 9 or 10 circles on each. Lay out your paper circles in a pattern that you’re happy with, keeping in mind which strings will be next to each other.

2. Use tape to attach the circles onto a length of string just longer than the height of your doorframe. Space the circles evenly along the string.

3. Glue another circle onto the back, sandwiching the string.

4. Tape the garlands into the doorframe and trim any excess string.
