Oversized Paper Chain Mural

Oversized Paper Chain BackdropRemember our Original Paper Chain Wall Hanging? You guys loved it! And so did we quite honestly. I love seeing you recreate the project and display it in your own homes. That’s what Lars is all about! This Oversized Paper Chain Mural is our fresh take on the idea. It’s perfect for party backdrops but also great if you’re looking for an art piece for a larger space. Another plus? This is a great TV project. In other words: Plop yourself in front of a good show and mindlessly make paper chains and before you know it, you’re done! Voila!
