This is a delightful and fun project from Antonella at White House Crafts. This DIY Paper Chain Wall Hanging is a basic and simple paper craft that can be done by everyone, for everyone. As you gather the following items, Antonella suggests for you to have a lot of extra supplies, especially glue sticks and blue coloured paper.
According to her calculations, each sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ card stock paper will yield you ten pieces and you will need exactly 264 for this 16 1/2″ x 24″ wall hanging. The measurements in this post are to specifically fit a roll that is 17″ long and 1″ in diameter. Anything shorter or thicker will pose a problem. Now let’s get started on your DIY Paper Chain Wall Hanging!
Card stock in sky blue, two shades of pink, medium blue, yellow, purple, and white
Hot glue gun
17″ x 1″ dia. cardboard cylinder from a roll of wrapping paper
Thick jute rope
First, start by trimming all 264 pieces into 1 ½” x 5 ½” strips. Broken down by colour, it goes: 1. Sky blue: 129
2. Hot pink: 30
3. Light pink: 24
4. Medium blue: 21
5. Yellow: 17
6. Purple: 7
7. White: 36
Plug in the glue gun and follow the patterning as you see it below to make your wall hanging. There are 29 rows and 9 columns.
Use the hot glue gun to adhere the strips together along the edge.
