I've always liked the looks of the rag garlands that I've seen at craft shows and on the internet and have been wanting to make one. The only thing stopping me was the idea of ripping all those strips of fabric then tying them all on to the jute twine.
I picked up a craft leaflet at a thrift store that just happened to have directions for making a rag garland that was a little different. This was cutting just three long strips of fabric and zig-zag stitching them to the twine. Then all you have to do is make cuts in the fabric every inch or so on both sides of the stitching, dampen the fabric and tumble in the dryer.
This cabinet isn't where I plan on hanging this but it was the brightest spot in the house for the picture.
The directions in the pamphlet also had wooden shapes attached to the garland and I haven't decided yet if I'm going to add them or not.
