This summer I picked up the most adorable little pink tree with pink lights to go in the princess's very "shabby" (as in Shabby Chic, not as in crappy) bedroom this Christmas. I got it for a just a few pennies.
Yesterday I decided that it would look great with a tied garland. I used scraps from the quilt I made for her bed.
First I cut the scraps into strips.
Why are they sorted on the carpet? Yes, I do have a craft table with a chair... I prefer to work on the floor.
I got some ribbon and started tying the fabric strips into knots around the ribbon. When I was finished, I trimmed all the ends of the fabric to about the same length.
Isn't it lovely?
Garland done, ornaments are next!
