If you love easy party decorations–and budget-friendly decorations too–then you’ll love this simple tea party banner. I was planning a small tea party themed birthday party for my toddler and I wanted some simple décor that would get the theme across without spending aaaall the money on tea party decorations like these cute ones I found on Amazon. Sigh. They really are cute though.

This easy tea pot garland is made by tracing out teapots and teacups onto the back of scrapbook paper and cutting them out. A few punches with a hole punch in each cut-out and a little bit of twine for the garland and you have a quick tea party banner you can easily make while watching Netflix.

A few ideas for customizing: I just grabbed some floral scrapbook paper from my local craft store, but you could also use glittery scrapbook paper, or opt for cardstock and then add additional embellishments like stickers, lace, buttons, etc.

You will need a teapot template, so you can certainly freehand one, or otherwise I just used this teapot template I found here. I drew the teacup freehand to match the sizing of the teapot.

I suggest roughly cutting out the template to see how many you can fit onto a piece of scrapbook paper and then adjusting your template accordingly (the quickest way is just to adjust the print sizing percentage). Fitting about 2-4 teapots per piece of 12×12″ paper will yield a nice-sized banner.

I also snagged these pretty floral plates from Target and added paper doilies and vintage tea cups for some fun accents that I already had on hand.

Easy Teapot Garland with Scrapbook Paper

For this paper teapot garland (perfect for your next tea party themed event) we are going old-fashioned. No cutting machine required for this easy tea party banner!

Prep Time 30 minutes
Active Time 10 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Difficulty Easy

Materials

  • 12"x12" Scrapbook paper (1 sheet yields about 2-4 cut-outs)
  • Twine for hanging
  • Templates

Tools

  • Scissors and/or craft knife
  • 1/4" hole punch

Instructions

  1. First off, if you didn't already print a teapot template, this is the one that I used. I also freehanded a simple teacup (they are faster to cut out than the teapots). Using a 6-8" template is great because you'll be able to fit at least a few onto a piece of scrapbook paper. Teapot template, scrapbook paper, scissors, hole punch, and twine on a wooden surface.
  2. Trace templates onto your scrapbook paper (see notes for how many you will need). Tracing teapots and teacups onto scrapbook paper.
  3. Cut out pieces using scissors or a craft knife. Cutting out the inside of the teapot handle is the trickiest part, so go slow. Teapot and teacup cutouts alongside scissors and a hole punch.
  4. Punch two holes at the top of each piece. A teapot cut-out and hole punch.
  5. Thread twine through the cut-outs. A teapot cut-out on a strand of twine.
  6. Adjust spacing for the area you will be hanging the garland, cut twine, and you are done! Teapot and teacup cut-outs hanging on garland.

Notes

Garland sizes: I used 12 cutouts for an 8' garland and 7 cutouts for a 50" garland. On each of the garlands I added 12-18" of extra twine on each side to give room for securing it and having some extra hang down on the ends.
