DIY Christmas garland

12/11/2014


Lots of wintery projects have been going on in our house so far, so I'm very excited to share with you my first ever DIY. This idea popped in my head a couple of days ago when I was thinking about how to decorate our home for Christmas. It's also the first time I really have the chance to decorate. Last year we where still heavy renovating and lived downstairs, before we lived in a tiny rented studio so there was no point in real decorations, a tree,...

I really love seeing those paper stars and cut-out decorations that you see everywhere but think it's a shame cutting into paper that probably won't be used the next year. So I used unbleached cotton. No waste and you can use it for whatever you like!


materials: unbleached cotton, a very sharp pair of fabric siccors, cotton rope, darning needle, sewing machine, iron and a little bit of imagination

Start with cutting squares of fabric in a size of your choice (mine are approx 10x15cm). Don't forget you have to include a seam on one side. Fold them like you would with paper, this can be like a square, triangle or rectangle. Each shape wil give you an other kind of pattern.
Now the fun part, start cutting! When you have enough, sew a seam on top of the piece of fabric, iron everything and with a darning needle pull a rope from one flag to the other. All done!
