Every year, after Thanksgiving dinner, we make a paper chain with what we’re thankful for. We hang it in the house and that’s that. But after nine years of that tradition, I was ready to mix it up.
Fold a piece of construction paper in half, and then half again.
Make sure the folded side is on top.
Cut sides off in a modified “A” shape.
Cut out the middle of the shape like below.
You’ll end up with a shape like this one:
Fold it in half again.
Hook each shape together. You can do this by putting the wide end through the narrow end, sort of like a ladder. The chain hangs together without staples or paint.
Keep going until your whole house is covered in trapezoids.
To save paper, I use the inside block that I cut out for a smaller chain. Maximize that effort!
