June is LGBTQIA+ Pride Month and we’re here to help you celebrate. In this blog post we’ll walk you through a super simple DIY Mini Pride Garland that you can use to decorate your bedroom!
But first, here are some other activities to check out this month:
Today, let’s make a DIY Mini Pride Garland. For this craft you will need colored paper, twine, scissors, and a glue stick. If you don’t have colored paper or twine, you can pick up supplies for this craft at any City Library location starting June 1, while supplies last.
The colors we’ve included in this DIY Pride Garland are the same colors you’ll find in the Progress Pride Flag.
Now let’s get started!
First, you will lay out your twine on a table or on the floor.
Next, fold all of your papers in half.
Place your folded papers on the twine.
Glue the paper strips together. You can also glue the paper to the twine if you don’t want them to move around.
Cut the bottom of the paper however you like. You can cut them as shown in the picture, in triangles, or any other creative way you want!
You’re done! Find a place to hang your garland. You can tie, tape, or pin them almost anywhere!
Happy Pride Month!
