It has been snowing…
…for a few days now – here in the mountains of North Carolina and other than the cold wind that has come along with it, I am enjoying the soft powdery ground cover. It goes along nicely with my holiday preparations ( I mean,really.. what better way to put you in the spirit?) But the wind and cold is keeping me inside and I am finding that the best way to pass the time is with holiday crafts! And although I SHOULD be finishing up my cards, I decided to make a new garland for my tree. I had some leftover fabrics via my handmade wedding crafts. Luckily, my colors consisted of red, white & turquiose (what do you know? PERFECT for the holidays! yay!) I cut the fabric into strips , tied it into buches and then tied the bunches to a thin ribbon and …. VOILA! A VERY PRETTY (easy) DIY FABRIC GARLAND!
- fabric- cut into strips (i use variations of aprox. 1 – 2 1/2″)
- make groups of fabric strips (3-4 strips per group works well)
- tie ribbon around each group using different variations of spacing
- reinforce each group by tying one strip from each group around knot in ribbon
** Make smaller sections of garland with loops on either end for easy decorating. **
THAT’S IT! YOU’RE DONE! :)
