How to Make a Fabric Garland
- To make it, I just used about 6 feet of twine to affix the fabric and ribbon to.
- Then I just pulled out my tub o’ fabric scraps and fabric bolts and selected a pile that I thought would coordinate well together. I cut the fabric into about 12″ by 2-3″ strips using pinking shears. As you can see, some are longer, some are shorter.
- Then I just started tying each of the fabric strips onto the twine evenly about every 6 inches, just eyeballing it to spread each strip out. To fill in the space between the fabric, I pulled out a bag of scrap ribbon and whatever fabric spools I had on hand.
- Then just tie the ribbon onto the twine. Just keep tying on ribbon until it looks full and festive.
Once I tied it to the fireplace I rearranged a couple strips to ensure the colors were evenly space and it was filled out. Just have fun and don’t worry about too much, it is supposed to look homemade. (or at least that is what I tell myself, ok?)
