Activity 29: Paper String

With all the paper based activities I imagine we all have a lot of paper left over. I sure do. Instead of throwing that paper away, it could become a lovely temporary decoration for your home.

 

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Left over paper, or paper with a nice design.

  • Scissors

  • Sewing Machine (with a thread colour of your choice)

WHAT TO DO:

Step 1.

Cut all the paper into funky shapes you like.

Step 3.

 

Sew all the pieces of paper together. You may wish to leave a little gap in between the pieces of paper as this will make it twirl with the wind. If you don’t want that then make sure all the pieces are securely sewn together.

Leave a piece of the thread at the end to hang your creation up.

Enjoy!
