Supplies

  • Card stock in sky blue, two shades of pink, medium blue, yellow, purple, and white (or substitute the colors you want)

  • Paper Trimmer
  • Hot glue gun
  • 17″ x 1″ dia. cardboard cylinder from a roll of wrapping paper or a dowel rod

  • Thick jute rope
  • Scissors

 

Instructions

First, start by trimming all 264 pieces into 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ strips. Broken down by colour, it goes:

1. Sky blue: 129

2. Hot pink: 30

3. Light pink: 24

4. Yellow: 21

5. Medium blue: 17

6. Purple: 7

7. White: 36

Plug in the glue gun, and follow the patterning as you see it below to make your wall hanging. There are 29 rows and 9 columns. Use the hot glue gun to adhere the strips together. You just need a little bit of glue along the edge. Also, if you’re using a dual temperature glue gun, make sure it’s on a low temperature setting.

Once all nine chains are assembled, slide the top ends thru the cardboard cylinder of an old or nearly finished wrapping paper roll. Note: the measurements in this post are to specifically fit a roll that is 17″ long and 1″ in diameter. Anything shorter or thicker will pose a problem.

Last, insert some thick jute twine into the cylinder and tie a double knot. Hang your masterpiece!
