Photo Garland DIY Step 1
What you need

Utensils for your Photo Garland

So here is the good news: I’m sure that you already have a lot of the things we will need for this tutorial at home. Besides a coloured card in the colour of your choice you will need: photos, a nice looking string, scissors & glue and a punch.

Photo Garland DIY Step 2
Cut the coloured card

Cutting the paper for Photo Garland

You have the coloured card in front of you? Perfect! So just grab a pencil and draw a form of your choice.  For this tutorial I chose a wimpel because it is classy, modern and very stylish. So let’s go to step one: You need to draw the wimpel down on your coloured card six times, then take the scissors and cut along the drawn lines.

Last but not least we need a solution for hanging our photo garland later on – now this is probably the easiest step: Just grab a punch and use it to create a super quick hanging for the garland.

It’s all about the string

String for the Photo Garland

After finishing step one, you have six nice wimpels in front of you. Now you need to connect them for creating a stylish and unique photo garland.

Therefore you just take the string and put it through the holes. It will work best, if you try to always keep the same distance between the different wimples. Please don’t forget to leave longer pieces at the end of each wimpel, so you can hang your photo garland to the wall when it’s ready.

Safe the best for last

Your favorite Photos for your Photo Garland

What is missing to turn your photo garland into a unique piece of art? Damn right, your personal pictures! With MyPostcard you can print your own pictures quick and easy so that you can put them on the wimpels for this photo garland DIY.

Side fact: Dont worry! If you now realize that your colour card might be to thin to hold ,just glue together two cards to make your photo garland more stable.

Are you a perfectionist? Just measure the exact position for your pictures. But since I am a little improviser I like to place the pictures with a sense of proportion. And you know what? That’s also the quickest solution for all the lazy bones out there 😉


You see, it’s so easy to beautify your living room or to make your party location more colourful. You can find more inspirations here.
