We love these bunting garlands from our shop, so we’re always looking for fun ways to customize them (like this art deco version we did!). We decided to give this project a summery twist by turning the garland into fruit slices! When life gives you lemons, turn them into party decor! Read on for the full DIY!

Materials needed: Paper bunting fan garlands (in light pink, peach, yellow, and mint), scissorsScotch tape, butcher paper, pencilcardstock (in orange, yellow, mint, black, and white), glue stick

Step 1: Separate the segments of the fan garlands with scissors. Mix up the colors and tape the segments back together with scotch tape. Then, hang up the garlands.

Step 2: Cut shapes for the separate scallop designs from cardstock.

Orange, Lemon, and Watermelon Designs:

  • Create a template for a semicircle with a radius of 11.5” on a large piece of paper. The fan is 11” in radius, so an extra ½” will cover the entire fan. Cut out the template.
  • Layer pieces of cardstock over the template and tape them together.
  • Trace the template onto the cardstock and cut out. Measure out a 2.5” rind and cut out the center.
  • Make seeds for the fruit using white cardstock for the lemon and orange and black cardstock for the watermelon. Stack a few pieces of 2” by 2-½” cardstock and then cut out a teardrop shape. You’ll need 3 teardrop shaped seeds per lemon, 3 per orange, and 5 per watermelon.
  • Use Scotch tape to secure the rind to the top sides of the fan. Loop the Scotch tape to secure the center of the rind, and attach seeds.

Kiwi Design:

  • Cut out a half-circle shape out of white cardstock, with a diameter of 7.5” and height of roughly 4.5”.
  • Stack a few pieces of 1” by 1-½” black cardstock and cut out a teardrop shape. You’ll need 13 teardrop shaped seeds per kiwi.
  • Glue the seeds along the curve of the semicircle, with the the pointy half of the seed on the semicircle.
  • Line up the flat edge of the semicircle with the flat edge of the fan. Tape the edges of the semicircle to the top of fan.
