Can you believe that Christmas is just six months away?! I can't! Time is just flying by.
A couple weeks ago I made a new Christmas Tree Skirt for myself, (I'll share details on Friday) and I love how it turned out. Actually I love it so much that I decided to re-create a scrappy no-sew Christmas garland.
When I was growing up each year on Thanksgiving, after we all ate our feast, the moms would make crafts. Everything from sewing to painting crafts. I remember one year in particular, probably about 25 years ago, us kids got to help make a scrappy Christmas garland. I'm thinking that I was probably about seven or eight and I still remember being so excited that we got to help.
So, I cut up all of my scraps and my kids got busy helping me re-create that garland. I thought it would be fun to share with you how I re-created my own garland.
Rope or twine; determine the length that you'd like based upon the size of your Christmas tree. I made my rope about 25 feet long.
Scrappy fabric strips; cut your fabric strips 1"x6", you will need approximately 40 strips per foot of rope.
Cut your scrappy fabric strips into 1"x6" strips.
Tie the fabric strips onto the rope, push them tightly together.
Tie a knot in the ends of the rope.
Repeat covering the entire rope heavily with fabric scraps.
Wrap it around your Christmas tree and enjoy!
Fabrics used: Sparkly Tinsel
