Every once in a while I get an urge to be crafty. I didn’t have any specific projects in mind so I decided to make a garland. You never know when there will be a going away party, bridal shower, birthday, baby shower, etc. and a garland will come in handy.
This adorable fabric garland is easy to make and I personally find the repetitious tying almost therapeutic.
- Fabric scissors.
- String, twine or yarn. (I used twine.)
- Fabric. You’ll get about 6-8 feet of garland for every yard of fabric. I bought one yard each of four different colors (four yards total) but you can do it however you like.
- Cut the fabric into 12″ strips. Each strip should be 1/2-1″ thick.
- Start 12-18″ from the end of the twine. Tie each piece of fabric in a single knot in whatever order you like. I keep a little bit of space between the knots. This makes your garland longer and helps the fabric hang neatly.
- Once all the fabric is on, tie a double knot at each end of the twine to keep the fabric from sliding off.
