Yesterday morning, I shared some extremely easy decorating ideas for your next shower or party on Good Day Austin
. A simple project that I've made for recent events that I've styled is this insanely easy fabric garland. As mentioned in yesterday's segment
, fabric garland adds a 'little something extra' to a plain table or bar cart.
For this garland, I cut the fabric into approximately 2" x 15" strips. For a more dramatic effect, you can cut the strips longer. You can also use ribbon in place of fabric, however it will require way more yardage and boost your cost exponentially. [Tip: Check Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's, etc. website before your purchase your fabric, as they always have coupons you can download to your phone!]
- Tulle [or twine]
Decide how long you want your garland to be, and cut your tulle. For example, I was planning to swag an 8' table, so I made my garland 9.5' and used about 1.5 yards of fabric. Simply tie your strips of fabric along the tulle, leaving a few inches of tulle at each end.
I spaced fabric knots about a half inch apart, but if you want a more full look, space them closer together. I made this garland solid navy, but mixing fabric colors and prints would be a great option too! For a most rustic party, I used jute / burlap and it looked great.
I simply swagged and pinned [using small safety pins] the garland on the underside of a table cloth, and voila!
Check back tomorrow for another super simple shower decor idea!
