~thrifty thursday~{fabric scrap garland}

Recently my mom gave me a bag filled with vintage fabrics.

I was in the middle of making a different project with them {which I will share shortly} and decided to make a garland for Valentine's Day.
These are so easy, kids can make them. I feel silly even doing a tutorial. Basically you just tear strips of varying widths and lengths of fabric.
I also used some lace trim and ribbon on mine.

You can use any material for base. Twine, ribbon, cording. I had leather cording on hand, so that is what I used. I
tied it from one kitchen cupboard handle to one a few feet down and started randomly tying pieces on.

You can make it as full or as sparse as you'd like.
I made mine pretty full.

And there you have it!

You have given me inspiration this morning, I just used some scraps yesterday to practice on some buttonholes I'm making. I will now use it to make this darling garland. I have white kitchen cabinets--will look so cute.
