My first Farmers Market of the season is quickly approaching (Wednesday). I’m ahead of the curve since I’ve wrapped all of my soap for the market and unearthed my booth fixings from the storage unit.
As I was unpacking my linen, I realized that my Christmas garland was still attached to the tablecloths. I loved the extra pop of whimsy the garland added to my cozy booth.
Since it’s no longer Christmas… I decided to make my own year round garland using fabric scraps that I had laying around from some previous unfinished projects.
Starting with the leftover fabric, I folded each piece in half and stacked them on top of each other. I cut down into the fabric about 2 inches. Then continued to cut about 1.5 inch chunks along the folded seam of the fabric. These measurements don’t have to be exact.
I cut about 9ft of jute string earlier to tie my fabric pieces onto. I knotted off each end to keep the strips in place.
To tie the strips onto the jute, place a folded strip of fabric under the jute. Folded seam at the top.
This is a pretty forgiving project. You can space your fabric strips close together or keep them farther apart. Whichever you prefer.
You can use any manner of fabric, ribbon or burlap to achieve the same general look.
I’ll be posting pics of the Market booth with this garland on my Facebook Page on Wednesday!
