What You’ll Need
What to Do
Begin by downloading and printing the Happy Birthday countdown paper chain printable. Several styles have been included so you can pick and choose which you’d like.
Save Money on Printing
If you’d like to save money on printing, I encourage you to check out HP Instant Ink. I’ve been using them for years and have saved SO MUCH money! It’s easy too – they know when your ink levels are running low and automatically send you new cartridges!
Once you’ve printed your Happy Birthday paper chains, cut them out.
Next, it’s time to glue!
Begin by gluing the end of one paper chain and press it together to make a link.
Then, add another strip of paper through the link you just glued and glue it closed just as you did with the first link.
Continue adding strips until you have the desired number of links on your Happy Birthday countdown paper chain. You could also make this as a birthday decoration, or make a second for decoration and use one as a countdown and the other as birthday party decor.
