I think with Earth Day coming up, these reusable fabric fringe garlands are the perfect thing to make. I first used these garlands at Lauren’s For, Like, Ever themed wedding shower.
You just need fabric (if you want really long garlands, you will need to make sure that you have continuous yardage of fabric – or you can always tack shorter ones together.) a rotary cutter (and straight edge and craft mat to go along with it) and scissors.
One of the cool things about these is that depending on how you store them, they have a bit of a different look. If you keep them folded nice and smooth after use, they will remain pretty flat. However, if you store them like I did above, they come out kind of crinkled and with a whole new look.
This is the perfect simple party craft. It is totally one of those crafts that you can do on the couch while you are catching up on Red Widow (OMG! Do you guys love that show? I’m totally addicted but can’t watch it at night time because it is too intense for me!).
And since I’m totally type A, I think I will use these for my son’s teacher’s birthday. Next year. I don’t even know who his teacher is yet since this year isn’t over. Which also means I have not officially been elected room mom. But it’s always good to have a plan. (Crazy, much?)
