Make a Garland With Scrap Fabrics

Two Parts:Preparing the Scrap FabricMaking the Garland

Do you need to recycle your left over bits of fabric? Is your fabric stash outgrowing its allotted storage space? This is an opportunity to up-cycle those fabric left overs and decorate for holidays at the same time!

Part 1 of 2: Preparing the Scrap Fabric

  1. 1
    Sort through your fabric stash.
    • Coordinate the scraps by their color.
    • Determine how much yardage you have. You will be able to make approximately 30 inches (76cm) of garland per yard (91cm) of fabric you have on hand.
    • Choose 2 to 4 coordinating fabrics to use for your garland.
  2. 2
    Launder the fabrics. If needed, press them smooth.
  3. 3
    Cut the fabric into strips. The strips should measure five inches long by one inch wide (12.5cm x 2.5cm). You can cut them longer if you wish, but you will need to cut them all the same length for best results.
    • A rotary cutter and mat make this part of the project a breeze.
    • You will need approximately 24 strips per linear feet of finished garland.
