Paper Chain Wall Hanging

Sometimes I really long to cover the walls of my home with beautiful, original art pieces. Unfortunately, in the art world, beautiful and original often means expensive. Plus, with how frequently I change my mind, it’s difficult to commit to a very pricey piece of art. So I turned to my favorite childhood craft to solve my debacle: Paper chains! Remember making paper chains in the classroom to decorate the room, or to count down the days until a certain holiday?

Paper Chain Wall Hanging

This paper chain wall hanging is a simple craft that can make a big impact. We created a more calculated paper chain art piece by focusing on color, shape, and design. The end result was a beautiful abstract design that adds just the right amount of color to an entryway! This is a very inexpensive project. Plus all you need is paper and some TV time to put this baby together!

  1. Slice the paper in strips with dimensions 1/2″ by 3 1/2″
  2. To make the paper chains, overlap each paper strip by about a 1/2″ and secure with glue to form a closed loop. Loop the next paper strip through and secure with glue. Continue until you’ve completed a strand, and begin the next one. Use our photos as a reference for the color guide or pick your own color scheme.
  3. When you are done, slide all the strands onto a wooden dowel and hang on the wall!
