Sometimes when I’m working on a project, I wonder if I’m absolutely crazy to be dreaming up and working on what I’ve just killed hours on. Sometimes, I just sit back and swoon and forget about the time gone by. Today’s project, my Fabric Scrap Banner, is one of those projects that I’m just over the moon about.
The best part? It’s simple, inexpensive, and high-impact; a recipe for perfection, if I do say so myself.
- one yd. white fabric
- 1/2 yd. muslin
- twill ribbon
1. Along the bottom edge of each of the pieces of fabric, cut a two inch slice into the fabric. Repeat the entire length of the fabric, every two inches. For the yard of white fabric, you’ll end up with 18 cuts and for the muslin, you’ll have 9 cuts.
2. Rip away! Literally, grab each side of the slit and tear the fabric. Repeat for all of the slits you cut in step 1. (Be prepared for a sweet arm workout in the process!)
3. Cut each strip in half so you end up with 36 white strips and 18 muslin strips. Is the math getting to you yet?
4. Tie a strip around the twine ribbon and pull it tight. Continue tying all of the strips, mixing the muslin and white pieces, until you’ve used them all. Make sure to push the strips tightly together.
5. Tie your completed fabric scrap banner (or garland or bunting, whatever your term of choice is) where ever you see fit in your home.
I adore the way it looks tied to my dining room chair. In fact, I may just need to make five more so all of my other chairs don’t feel left out. 😉
Tell me: where would you use this sweet banner?
Don’t forget how amazing it looks with the Project Life Festive Fall Banner too. It’s like a match made in DIY and fall decor heaven. 🙂
