Back when we were kids, we only ever thought of making those paper chains to hang around the Christmas tree, but this roundup will show you that there are so many other ways to use them.

Easy Paper Chain Crafts
We were wowed by what we found here. Grab some colorful paper and start creating some amazing craft project.
This would be a gorgeous wall hanging in any room – and so inexpensive to make!
These paper heart chains would make for a fun party decoration, wouldn’t they?
Ask at your local home improvement store – often they will give away old paint chip samples or allow you to buy a bunch really inexpensively. They make such pretty paper chains don’t they?
The kids will get a big kick out of this octopus. Make one just for fun or to go along with an under the sea unit at school or for homeschool.
If the octopus is too big an undertaking, how about making caterpillars instead? This would be a great accompaniment for the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
This would make a simple but sweet decoration in a rainbow baby’s nursery, kids’ playroom, or classroom.
Have you ever see paper chains like this before? We can imagine using these for Valentine’s Day decor or at a wedding or bridal shower.
Fun to make and fun to play with! Challenge the kids to see how long a python they can make!
Use paper chains for countdowns – count down to Christmas, Easter, birthdays, first day of school – anything you want. This would be perfect in a classroom for counting down the 100 days of school!
Another fun wall hanging idea that would be perfect in a dorm room, teen’s bedroom, kid’s room or nursery. We’d love this in the living room too – it would add so much color and texture to our decor!
This takes us back! Remember those slinky dogs? They were so cute and so much fun. Now you can make one out of paper.
Adorable decorations for Halloween! Get the kids to make a variety of different characters and then join them all together.
How many different kinds of faces can the kids give these cute little Jack O’Lanterns?
This is so easy and so inexpensive. It would take very little time to put this craft project together. Where would you hang them?
Here’s another cute countdown idea – this one for getting ready to take a trip to Disney! So fun!
