How to make a garland?
1. Corrugated paper is great for creating garlands, because it is an order of magnitude stronger due to a special texture, but any other colored paper will also work. Even if it happens that it breaks, you can easily glue the damaged fragment with glue or tape.
2. Next bend the paper with an accordion.
3. Having determined the figure, decide for yourself and what size it will be.
4. Draw a picture. You can do this with a template or just by hand. The drawing should be of such a size that its edges rest against the folds of the paper. Plus think over the compositional moment. In our case, the snowballs will hold on to the handles, and the asterisks will be joined by rays. Although if the flowers, for example, just stretch out in a line - it will also be quite nice.
5.Cut the pattern, taking into account the fact that the places in which the figures will connect, do not need to be cut. That is, the folds of the paper should remain intact.
6. Expand and see your garland.To make it even more interesting, add some details to it. So we painted the asterisks and snowmen's faces and they immediately became more cheerful.
