Our party we posted the other day featured this sweet little garland in the background and I thought you all might like to know the simple way I created and hung it! I think this decoration is not just perfect for parties but also for Easter decor in general! The great thing about jellybeans is they pretty much stay looking the same for a loooong time so this decoration can be used year after year as long as it doesn’t get smooshed!
On a less-sticky note, Zurchers provided us with everything we needed to created this fab, disposable jellybean table runner! It could also be used as a really cute party table or photo booth backdrop. Click through for the tutorial on creating both!
- FOR THE GARLANDS:
- Jellybeans in assorted colors and sizes //
- Teeth floss //
- Needles //
- Thumbtacks for hanging //
- FOR THE RUNNER:
- Paper placemats in a variety of colors //
- Scissors //
- Pen or pencil //
- Jellybean template
This table runner could not be easier! Just buy any colors of these paper placemats, use our jellybean shape (I actually went a lot bigger than that so you can trace a couple inches out from it or magnify it and print on two pages) and trace it onto the back. Then you can cut out about 6 papers at a time. I laid them out down the table and adhered with double sided tape on the ends.
For the garlands pull out twice as much floss as you want your garlands to be long. String it through a needle and tie the two ends together. Then thread this through a variety of colors and shapes of jellybeans, some going through the long way, some short way and some any way you want!
Then you can hang behind your decor or party any way you want to! I won’t lie, it’s a sticky craft but a cheap decoration and quick to throw together!
