It’s safe to say in Canada we’ve flicked the switch from “Happy Fall Ya’ll” to Christmas. I bet that’s a bit hard to believe for all my American followers that still have a little bit to go until Thanksgiving. Our family is somewhere in the middle. We are embracing a slow and early start to the Christmas season but I’m still enjoying no snow on the ground… CAN WE HAVE BOTH?
This week I was looking at my pile of scrap fabric trying to come up with a DIY that could be as much cute as it is useful in using up my scraps of fabric. I give you the scrappy garland! It’s cheap and cheerful and it’s certain to jazz up a boring space. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Scraps of fabric
I cut my scraps of fabric into strips measuring 2 x 24 inches. You can cut as many as you’d like. It really all depends on the look you’re going for. I used 14 for mine.
In order to attach the scraps to the twine you’re going to do a “cow hitch knot”. I’ve provided some step by step instructions below. Loop all your scraps & TA-DA! Your very own garland made of recycle fabric scraps! Look at you, reducing, reusing, & recycling!
