Hey, hey there everyone!
You know, that temporary transition between end of Summer and leading into Fall is always an anxious time for me. Do you ever feel that way between seasons?
I get like that also between February and April.
I want to decorate full blown come the end of August for the Fall season.
But let’s face it, I look like a fool and who can have that?!
So I thought I would make a ribbon scrap garland for our fireplace to jazz it up with some whimsy and color.
I love making banners and you can check out my
Burlap gallery for more ideas. They are all in there.
the other day I shared some history on vintage purple bottles. I wanted my scrap garland to go along with those.
I used simple twine as the garland.
It is light and easy to tie fabric or ribbon around.
I wanted my garland to look a bit more shabby and rag like.
Sort of like I did my burlap rag wreath last year. Nothing too refined or perfect.
The colors were perfect because I have just about every color in our family room.
Not sure what the hubs thinks of it. But then again, he knows it won’t be up for very long. Just about a month or so.
There really is no tutorial.
You simply cut your ribbon in all different lengths and tie the end around the twine in a knot.
I added burlap scraps as well that I cut in strips.
That’s about all for today! and that’s how you make ribbon scrap garland.
I will be back soon.
By the way, I was totally inspired to make this after seeing my blogging friend Shannon make a bunch for an upcoming Market she is in.
You can check out her vintage garlands as well. She made a bunch.
Hope you stick around and follow me:)
