Christmas Garland DIY - How to Hang Your Honeycombs!

by Jo Williams November 20, 2014

I am a self confessed Garland obsessive! I don't feel at home unless there is a string of bunting or a garland adorning a wall/window/dresser/tree. I recently spotted a honeycomb garland in a shop for £24 and rushed home to make my own! It really is very easy, here is how:

You will need:

9 x 3" Honeycomb Balls will make approximately 1.5m of garland
A length of Bakers Twine 
Double-sided Sticky Tape

Step 1:   Cut your length of twine, ensure it is a little longer than you need the garland to be.

Step 2:   Make a loop at each end to enable you to hang the finished Garland neatly

Step 3:   Stick a small piece of double sided tape to the card inside the Honeycomb and open the ball out. You can either cut the little hanging string off the honeycomb or lay it down insdide the ball out of site, carefully lay your twine inside the middle of the honeycomb and close the ball. There is no need to stick the twine down inside as the closed ball will hold it there quite firmly and it will also enable you to carefully move or alter the ball along the twine if necessary later.

Step 4:   Adjust the gaps by carefully moving the balls along the twine if necessary. Hang and Enjoy!

Just what I needed

Guess what- it was perfect for a hen party! Top quality.

Beautiful!

Took forever to blow up but worth it! Only needed them for 2 nights but a week later they're still alive. :)

Easy to use

I was nervous about using this but having watched the video it was very easy and the helium filled balloons were great and stayed up well.

Gorgeous !

These balloons are absolutely gorgeous, easy to fill and so pretty, they stayed up for almost a week too !

AMAZING
