Olympic Paper Chain Party

The 2018 Winter Olympics are only a few weeks away and we are gearing up for the opening ceremonies! Did you grow up watching the Olympics?

Instructions:

  1. Cut 3/4-inch by 8 1/2-inch strips and 1/2-inch by 8 1/2-inch strips of office paper in all 5 colors of paper. You’ll want a lot of strips!
  2. Make multi-colored paper chains and solid color paper chains by creating interlocking loops of the paper strips and securing with hot glue.
  3. Crisscross across the ceiling and secure with gaffer tape.
  4. To make paper orbs, cut out 5 1/5-inch circles and 8-inch circles from all colors of paper. You will need three circles of the same size for each orb.
  5. Make 1 slit going half way down the middle of each circle. Interlock all three circles using the slits and hot glue them in place so they are spread apart.
  6. Hot glue pieces of twine to each orb and hang from the ceiling at different heights with gaffer tape.
  7. Cut the butcher paper into 10-inch wide sheets and spread them across your table, with about 2-inches in between each color.

Sprinkle confetti, adorn with various flags, and pull out the donuts! Opening Ceremonies here you come!
