While I am definitely not a seamstress, the
craft hoarder dedicated crafter in me loves pretty fabric! So occasionally, from time to time, I might pick up a few yards here and there. Since I am in the process of decorating for Spring, I knew a pretty fabric garland would be the perfect way to add color, texture and interest to the space! And the idea for this easy no-sew Spring fabric garland was hatched!!
Want to make a Spring no-sew fabric garland? (I made a similar garland for my mom’s vintage love bird themed wedding shower,too!) Here are the supplies I used:
Believe it or not, the fabric for this banner was found at Walmart! I picked up three fat quarters in several bright, Spring time prints, snipped the fabric at inch intervals and ripped the fabric into strips. If you prefer cleaner edges, you can cut the lengths entirely with scissors, but I happen to like a little shabby chic I found the felt flowers at Michaels or Joanns but you could easily make your own, grabbed some jute twine and got to work tying the fabric onto the twine:
Fold each fabric strip in half. Lay the twine on top of the folded strip about one inch down. Slip the two tails through the loop created by the fold and pull them through, creating a knot of sorts. Tighten the fabric around the twine and repeat, alternating fabric patterns. Add a felt flower to each end (I used basic craft glue) and hang it up!
