Easy DIY Fall Rag Garland

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

It seems like every year the stores bring out the Christmas decorations earlier and earlier. Although I love Christmas, I don’t like short changing Thanksgiving and all the beautiful fall decor. Today I wanted to share with you a very simple fall garland. It is really easy to do. I love a simple project that I can do when my little guy is napping.

You will need:
-pinking sheers
-twine, rope, ribbon, or string
-fabric
-ruler (optional)

I started by purchasing 4 different fabric quarters at JoAnns. They often have these on sale and they only cost around $2 and it is plenty of fabric.

Step 1: Cut a piece of twine the length that you want your garland to be.

Step 2: With pinking sheers, cut strips from each of the fabrics that are approximately 1″x 9″. I did not measure mine. I just went for it. I was not looking for perfection on this project :)

Step 3: Tie the strips of fabric on to the twine. This step takes some time, but not much brain power. I did it while watching TV. :)

Step 4: Hang up and enjoy! Super easy and adds great color to your fall decor!
