How To Hang Papel Picado

To hang your papel picado up; wrap the string at each end of the garland twice around a piece of strong clear sellotape, and stick to a wall/beam/tree/curtain rail/anything, or wrap around a tack nailed into a wall.

Garland too long or too short for your venue? No problem! ;) You can easily make the perfect garland lengths for your venue with whatever length garlands you have bought:

To make a garland longer; tie various garlands together at each end.

To make a garland shorter; carefully rip off the flag at the position along the garland that you want to cut the garland down to. Cut the string down to the desired length. Now you can start a new garland with the excess you cut off, by tying it to the end of the next garland.
