Have you read the new book My Color is Rainbow? It is such a lovely story written by our friend Agnes Hsu of hello, Wonderful and the illustrations are so bright and beautiful.  We were immediately inspired! We decided to celebrate with this colorful rainbow ball garland!

Start with:

  • Cardstock in Rainbow of Colors
  • Scissors
  • Single Hole Punch
  • Paper Fasteners
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • String

Create It!


Step 1: Measure approximately 1 cm x 8.5 in. strip of cardstock.

Step 2: Cut six strips from each color of cardstock.

Step 3: Place a single hole punch at each end and center of each strip.

Step 4: Line up center hole for six strips of each color. Secure with paper fastener.

Step 5: Forming ball, bring together opposite ends of each strip and secure with paper fastener.

Step 6: Repeat steps for each color. When finished wrap string around top paper fastener of each color ball, spaced evenly apart, to create garland.

The colorful garland would be so fun for so many types of celebrations or just to brighten up a space! Can't go wrong with rainbow colors!
