Day 34: No-sew Holiday Garland

DAY 34 is brought to you by, the lovely Summer of the Crosbie CrewHi everyone! My name is Summer and I blog over the Crosbie Crew.  Today I’m going to show you how to make a no-sew holiday garland.  (inspiration found here)

What you need:

-fabric in whatever holiday scheme you like

-rotary cutter or scissors

-string or yarn

-cutting mat or something to protect your table surface

-ribbon (not pictured)

Directions:

-Cut your fabric into 1×14 inch strips. Tip: A rotary cutter makes this go really fast but if you don’t have one, scissors will work.

 Once you cut a bunch of fabric strips, cut your string to the desired length.  Basically I measured the area where I wanted to hang it and added about a foot.

Now it’s time to tie your fabric onto the string by following the pictures below.  Do the same with each piece of fabric..

Keep adding on your fabric strips in whatever pattern you like.  Make sure to keep at least 6 inches of string at the ends so you can tie your garland to something.

When I was done I felt like it needed a little more so I added some sheer ribbon to it.  I tied the ribbon the same way as the fabric strips. Voila!  You’re done and I hung mine on our mantle.


I hope you enjoyed this!  Thanks Chelsey for having me.

    So cute! I wish we had a mantle to decorate. Well, we HAVE a mantle (and a fireplace, obviously haha) but it is downstairs in our family room and it is COVERED with Pez dispensers. My husband has a "small" collection.
