You remember paper chains right? I certainly do, these used to be one of my favourite crafts when I was a child and no matter what the occasion I would try to bust out the paper chains to decorate up my bedroom with! Christmas time they were red and green and come halloween my paper chains were black! Well, it just so happens that paper chains make the most amazing back drops and they’re really really easy to make! We’d love to see an entire wall of paper chains, wouldn’t you?

For this DIY all you’ll need is: // Paper or card in the colours of your choice // Glue // Guillotine // A pole to thread your chains onto //

Step 1: Cut your paper into thin strips using your guillotine, we cut ours to around 3 centimetres wide with a height of 21 centimetres (the short side of an A4 page)

Step 2: Add your glue to one edge of the strip.

Step 3: Then fold your strip back on itself to form the loop, hold in place to dry.

Step 4: Repeat with your next strip but be sure to loop it through your first loop.

Step 5: Continue to do this until your paper chain is the length you would like it and then repeat in all the other colours until all of your paper chains are done!

Step 6: Finally thread the top loops of your chains onto your pole and you’re done!

Don’t forget we love seeing your creations on instagram by using the hashtag #bespokebridediy
