Mother’s Day, Easter, Baby Shower, Sweet Little Girl birthday party….this Gingham Garland is an adorable idea for your event. Wrap it around a basket handle, adhere to the edges of a rustic table top or on a tablecloth, encircle a large bowl of bright ripe strawberries or surround a platter of yummy bar-be-que….It’s an easy no sew DIY project!
I bought a 1/4 yard each of 7 different colors of gingham fabric and a roll of jute twine from Hobby Lobby
Next rip 2″ wide x 6″ long strips of fabric
Measure out a length of jute for your particular project. If you wrap a basket handle, wrap it around and around about 3 times
Tie each fabric strip around the jute, sliding each tied strip along the jute until you’ve covered the length
If you decide to use the garland as a basket handle, hot glue one end of the garland to a basket handle, wrap garland around the handle about 3 times, fluffing fabric as you go
Tuck the other end of the garland inside the opposite end of the basket handle.
Hot glue to secure and…done!
Add a basket full of surprises and enjoy
…..Or tuck in a beautiful vintage tea cup & tea pot and
give to that special Mom for a Mother’s day gift
