Make These Pretty Garlands for Your Next Holiday Party

October 3rd, 2017 • Contributor: Cricut Blog Team

One easy way to make a room more festive is to deck it out with garlands. These swags can be easily customized to match the holiday or other occasions that you are celebrating. During this fall or winter, why not make one of these pretty garlands using your Cricut?

Metallic Leaf Garland

Step 1: Cutting and Scoring

Open up the project in Design Space and insert the scoring stylus into your machine. Put the cardstock on your mats and cut out the project. It will also do the scoring for you as it goes.

Step 2: Fold All the Leaves

Take all of the leaves and prepare them for attachment by folding them along the score lines.

Step 3: Attach Leaves

Use the hot glue to adhere each leaf to the wire. Make them go in all directions to add fullness to your garland.

Step 4: Paint the Garland

The final step is to paint all of the leaves. Silver spray paint was used for the one pictured, but you can certainly use other metallic colors depending on your needs. A nice antique gold would go lovely with the reds and greens of Christmas, for example. Allow to dry, then hang up.

Diamond Garland

This is a JoAnn Exclusive project.

Step 1: Cutting and Scoring

Go to this Design Space project and follow the prompts to cut and score the diamond pattern.

Step 2: Assemble the Diamond Garland

Make the diamond by folding each of the score lines that your Cricut made during cutting. Start folding it together into the diamond shape around the twine so that it runs through the middle. Hot glue each of the sides together. Keep adding diamonds to the twine at 5" intervals.
