DIY PAPER EUCALYPTUS BRANCHES
Print out this double-sided pattern on light green cardstock. Using your small army of circle punches, make a stash of each size. We made the most of our thick circle punches by stacking a few sheets of cardstock to speed things up. Their built-in confetti catcher helps contain all punched paper circles until you’re ready to set them aside for assembly.
Once you’re ready to thread them on to the stem wire, fold your paper circles in half – it makes it easier to poke a hole that way. Push your paper circles through the wire and away you go! You can use a dab of hot glue to secure each in place if they get a little lose. That’s it! Easy, right?
We then made wreaths using wooden hoops and secured them with fishing line.
DIY TABLE NUMBERS:1>
Using wood logs or a piece of 4×4, saw a slit to add your table number cards with the help of this folding saw. Drill a few small holes on the front of the slit to add your paper eucalyptus stems.
