diy {scrap fabric garland}

Okay…so this look’s like a repeat of a post from last week, but I assure you it is not.

After I hung my sister’s print, it just didn’t look right. I wasn’t crazy about the bunting so I decided to make something new.

A scrap fabric garland. That is the most creative name I could come up with….


  • Scrap fabric
  • Long ribbon, trim, lace
  • Coffee with lots of cream and candy corn is also essential

Cut pieces about 16 inches long and 3 inches wide. Just eyeball it – no need to be perfect. Fold in half.

Cut the fabric into strips…but not all way leave the very center uncut – this helps keep the fabric together for later steps. I’m not explaining it well, hopefully the pictures help.

Notice the little feet on the spiderman sleeping bag. Her brother left his sleeping bag there and she decided to lay down…

But she scooted her head onto the cement and under the chair. She was quite content and did not want to be bothered or moved.

My strips of cut fabric. How many you make depends on how long you want your garland and how close you want the tassels of fabric.

Now to tie the fabric. I used a piece of lace trim to tie on my tassels of fabric. Again, hoping the pictures explain how to tie it on

While Little One rested under the chair, her brother was painting nearby me.

Last week someone asked about my crafting books. These are a few of my favorites. The Farm Anatomy book is not a craft book, but I like the illustrations. I’ll try to post more about them later.
