You guys know I’m all about a great kid-friendly DIY and that’s exactly what this post is all about. I’m always on the lookout for fun projects to do with Zelda, so when I came across this paper chain wall hanging, I knew we had to give it a go. Now, before I dive into all the details, I will tell you up front that this project, although fun, is a little bit of a time suck and requires lots of attention to detail. But your kids will seriously love it, so I say go for it! Or if you’re looking for a statement piece of decor for a baby shower or birthday party, this is seriously so perfect and a very affordable option.
Anyway, the possibilities of a paper chain wall hanging are endless! You can use any color combo or pattern, all you need are a few basic craft supplies, most of which you probably already have tucked away in your craft closet. We used basic construction paper, a paper trimmer (which is totally optional, it just makes things a hell of a lot easier in my opinion), a hot glue gun and glue sticks.

Once you have your supplies ready to go, you can dream up your color combo/pattern. We started off being inspired by this one we found on Pinterest, but once we got the hang of it, we went off course and really did our own thing. Whatever you do, there’s no right or wrong, just follow the instructions below and have some fun!
