DIY: Fabric Party Garland.

created on: 09/01/08

Everyone loves the festive touch of hanging stuff from the ceiling. But the premade, disposable options are, well, disposable, and well, ugly. Handmade paper garlands are a much better option, but if you're making the effort, why not go all out and create a fabric option, which can be used again and again with no tearing, ripping, or crinking...well, maybe a little crinkling, but nothing a hot iron and a few seconds can't fix. And what a great way to use up fabric scraps.

Materials

  • Lots and lots of scraps in at least 10 different patterns. 
  • 1 spool Gutermann Invisible thread
  • 1 set of Garland Templates which you can download here and here.
  • 1 heavy paper bag
