Once the Christmas garland was down at the shop it became very obvious that it would be missed. With the sun going down early during these wintery days the shop gets dark, so we had to figure out a way to light it up. I came across this wonderful post from Gina @ The Shabby Chic Cottage. She shared a how to on making a Ragamuffin Garland using a string of repurposed Christmas lights.
I decided I had to give it a try. Gina bought beautiful coordinating fabrics to create this gorgeous garland.
Since I'm more of a "use what I have" kind of girl, I went searching around for the fabrics. I managed to come up with a burlap bag, some scraps of burlap fabric, some leftovers from a chair recovering and a few mismatched cotton napkins that I'd never used. And since I wasn't sure what I'd end up with I don't have pictures of the supplies. But I do have some of the finished product!
This project was so easy. I just cut up my fabrics in strips and started tying knots...
And kept tying knots...and after a very long time and a lot of knots...
My fingers were numb...but the garland was done!
Let there be LIGHT!
I'm linking up with Tea Rose Home, Sew Woodsy, Serenity Now, and Beyond the Picket Fence. I just love seeing what everyone else is up to!
