Around the World Paper Chain

Around the World Paper Chain


Create a beautiful vintage decor item with this Around the World Paper Chain from 7 Gypsies.  Paper garlands like this look stunning in a library or reading room, and can also be displayed on a Christmas tree for a unique and whimsical look.

Around the world paper chain


  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive
  • String


  1. Use a circle stencil (or bottom of a tin can) to trace circles and cut. Each globe contains 7 circles. (the more the merrier!) we cut three different size circles to create dimension in our paper chain.  Fold each circle in half.  Select two folded circles, use any type of adhesive (we used a tape runner) and glue two flat sides together. Repeat until you get to the last circle you need to glue.  Place string in the middle of the circles before you glue the last one on, then glue the last circle on to form a ball.

  2. Repeat steps one through four until you have string of paper globes!

I love this. It would be great for a kid's geography class. The question I want to know is, are these photo copies of maps? It just says "paper" on the directions. Sally

Hi there - If you have maps or copies of maps, you can absolutely use them. The paper can have any pattern, really, in this case it just happens to be map-themed. Thanks - Julia from FaveCrafts

Clever and attractive! A great way to recycle Christmas cards! It would look nice on a mantle with greenery...

I think this is a great idea.Maybe one could use maps of favorite vacation spots.
