No matter the time of year and no matter the occasion, we love parties. We love attending them, hosting them, organizing them, and even decorating them. Besides the fact that parties are a fantastic chance to see our friends and family and celebrate the happiest moments in life, we also love that they’re such an awesome opportunity for getting creative! Whether you’re preparing the food, choosing the theme, or making a few decor pieces, you’re making something truly magical happen and using your DIY skills to do it. So, what’s our favourite part of making a party happen, you ask? Well, we’re quite happy to contribute in any way, but we really love decorating. Now, if you ask us, the best part of decorating for a party isn’t necessarily the biggest things you’ll notice in the room. We’re actually completely obsessed with adding colour schemes and theme elements to the finer details of the party because we think those are they key to really impressive your guests and giving them a thoroughly well planned experience. That’s why we won’t shy away from telling people that our absolute favourite thing to make when we’re on the party decorating team is the garland!
In case you’re just as obsessed with the idea of making your own DIY party garlands as we are, if not more, check out these 15 awesome homemade party garland designs that will brighten the whole place up no matter what you’re celebrating.
1. Exciting, brightly coloured tassel garland
Perhaps you’re just looking for something fun, colourful, and decorative that will add a bit of pop, sparkle, and texture to the room even though you don’t necessarily have a set theme for the party itself? In that case, your options are almost unlimited, but we have one special go-to garland design that we use for just about any even that doesn’t actually required something specific. We completely adore making tassel garlands! We’ve made countless fun tassel garlands in innumerable colours and we’re still not sick of them yet. Find out the easiest way to hop on the tassel garland train and make some of your own on Pizzazzerie.
2. Fringed circle fiesta garland
Does the idea of adding bit of fringe to the party intrigue you but you like the tassel idea we showed you above so much that you’ve actually already done that one and now you need something a little different? In that case, here’s an equally colourful and awesomely textured alternative for you from Tell, Love, and Party! They show you how to make a circle garland fit for a true fiesta, but also how to cut inwards from the edges just so, making fringy pieces all around each individual circle. We can’t get over how much we like the final product (and the fact that all you need is string, scissors, and paper)!
3. Bright candles birthday garden
Has your favourite part of any birthday party always been the candles and, even though you know you can’t, you wish you could have lit candles all around the entire party to really brighten the place up? In that case, we have an idea that just might work as an alternative if you’re willing to use your imagination a little bit! We love the way Alice & Lois created simple paper candles in all different colours and then strung them along in lines to be hung like garlands all across the wall above the snack table where the cake sits.
4. Easy DIY balloon garland
When we were little, it wasn’t really a party without balloons. It didn’t matter what we were celebrating or how many people were there; balloons were an ever present party guest in our home. Now that we’re the ones throwing the parties, we’ll admit that we still have that nostalgic fondness for balloons, only now we like to get a little more creative with how we display them whenever we can. That’s why we fell in love with these balloon garland idea from Pretty Providence so hard! This idea is somewhere between a party garland and a miniature balloon arch and we’re completely here for it either way. Use whatever colour balloons you please!
