This is an easy and gorgeous way to decorate a room or add some festivity to a celebration. Using scraps of fabric makes it a nice cleanup for your sewing stash too! Keep reading to see how to make one yourself!
- Scraps of fabric ( or a few coordinating colors 1/4 yard wide)
- Thick twine
I bought my fabric 1/4 inch wide which made it the perfect length for this project. With your scissors cut slits along the length of the whole piece 1/2- 1 inch wide (about 30 slits)
Grab one end and rip! Do the same for all the slits
Do the same with your other colors. It only takes about 10 minutes. Let the kids join in for this part!
Now take 2 of the 1 inch strips you just ripped and cut it so it's half as long (still 1 inch wide). Make 3 slits in those pieces and rip them like you did the larger strips.
Grab two pieces of each color and hold them together so their ends line up approximately.
Now hold one hand at each end of your stack and twist them together
Now wrap it around the string
Now take one of the small pieces of ripped fabric and tie it tights right under the string
That's it! Do the same for the other stacks and hang up to add a pop of color into any room!
