Decorative Paper Chains

Decorative Paper Chains

Do you decorate your sukkah? Paper chains are fun and festive and easy to make.

Here's how:

Step 1: Supplies

You'll need colored paper, scissors and either tape or a stapler.


Step 2: Start Looping

Cut the paper into evenly sized strips. Choose your first color and create a loop. Seal it using either tape a stapler. Thread the next color strip through the first, and staple/tape. Continue until your paper chain is as long as you'd like.




Step 3: Hang your Chains

Hang the chains across your sukkah. You can use strong packing tape to stick the ends of the chains to the walls. Or, if your sukkah is made from fabric, you can use a safety pin.


Happy Sukkot!
