This next paper backdrop that Kathryn Godwin created for us is a doozy. You can use leftover cardstock, paint chips, catalog pages or any other paper you may have laying around to create a jaw-dropping curtain backdrop. It’s as easy to make as it is to transport from your reception to a wall in your new home!
For this project, you will need:
– 2″ circle puncher
– embroidery floss
1. Use a 2″ circle puncher with the cardstock color of your choice.
2. Thread a needle with embroidery floss cut to your desired length – stick through center of circle, double knot the end.
3. Alternate between knots and threaded circles every 1.5-2 inches.
4. Braid several pieces of embroidery floss to the length that you wish your backdrop to be; allow for an extra foot or so if you want a swag. Tie your strands of threaded circles to the braid every 2 inches.
