What you'll need

  • Scissors

How to make it

  1. Chinese Banner - Step 1

    Cut at least a dozen or more large circles from colored paper.

  2. Chinese Banner - Step 2

    Fold each circle in half, then in half again, and finally in half a third time (it will resemble a wedge of pizza). Perforate each wedge by making a series of snips from both sides toward the center.

  3. Chinese Banner - Step 3

    Unfold the snipped circles. Apply a few drops of glue along the edge of one open circle. Place a second circle on top of the first, so that the edges stick together. Next, apply glue to the center of the second circle and place a third circle on top of it. Continue adding the remaining circles, alternately gluing the edges and the centers.

  4. Chinese Banner - Step 4

    When the glue is dry, gently pull the top and bottom circle in opposite directions and hang the garland.
