Party Decorations Part 3: How To Make A Party Hanger

Diy party hanger tutorial

I must admit, I did have intentions to upload this yesterday but I went to see Gone Girl at the cinemas. The Odeon have an offer on so if you haven't seen it check it out! Anyway, here is my final party decoration of the week as it is Noah's birthday tomorrow! If you would like to see part one and two click here and here.

What you'll need: coloured card, scissors/guillotine, string and either sellotape or glue.

Firstly, grab your card and cut it into strips. I needed a lot of strips as I wanted mine to be quite long but this will vary depending on the length that you choose.

Using the strips you have cut out, loop them round and stick the open sides together. I chose to use sellotape as I didn't trust my glue to pin down the card. Make your next loop and then attach it to your last one. Once you have this figured out just keep on repeating until you meet your desired length.

I wanted a multicoloured hanger to match the other decorations that I made but you can choose whatever you like. After I had completed my first chain, I picked up my second colour and repeated the last stage. I then did this again and again and again... you get the picture!

Finally, thread your chains onto a piece of string and hang it on your wall. Don't forget to admire your work! Yay! You now have a simple hanger for your fabulous party! This was really easy to make so why not give it a try? As for the rest of the party, I'm going to leave that to the professionals but I've had so much fun this week making these decorations. I hope you liked them.
