DIY Triangle Garland + Confetti

Hi there, it’s Jenny from Hank + Hunt, with a super simple DIY project from the blogger meet and greet – triangle garland and confetti! I am obsessed with all the geometric patterns out there lately and have taken a special liking to triangles. The extras from making garland were used as floor confetti. Yep…big giant triangles scattered on the floor to mimic the tabletop confetti = FUN!

Supplies –

  • triangle template
  • scissors
  • rotary cutter set {ruler, mat, cutter}
  • card stock in your favorite colors
  • Glue Dots
  • clear fishing line

Print out your triangle template and cut in half. Cut strips using a rotary cutter out of 2-4 sheets of card stock at a time. Each strip will make 2 double sided triangles for the garland or 4 giant floor confetti ones. I cut out a ton of strips first, and then went back to cut the individual triangles.

Holding your template on top of a strip, cut out a triangle. Use that single template and place on right side of strip, making two triangles: one covered by template and one not covered. Cut out template. Continue down the line with all of your strips.

Pull out a length of fishing line from the spool, I kept it on the spool until I used it, fishing line can get tangled easily. To make the garland, take one triangle, add two Glue Dots to the center of one side and to the opposite point side. Lay the fishing line down the center of both dots, and top with a second triangle of the same color. Repeat this step, placing triangles about 1″ apart, facing the same direction. Make the garland as long as you would like.

This is just as easy with small confetti. Cut 1 inch wide strips, and cut across diagonally making small triangles. Repeat for as much or as little confetti as you want. You can also make the strips thinner for smaller triangles.

I also attached some medium triangles to the cake stands.
