Can a house ever really have too many garlands?
No of course not!
I’ve already got several garlands of all different shapes and sizes strung around the house, but when I saw the sorry state of my fabric ball garland I knew it had to come down.
Being a bit of a make do and mend kinda gal I was loath to throw it out, besides, it took me bloody ages to cut all those circles out!
So having washed and dried the fabric ball garland I had a think about what to use the circles for….
Fabric Confetti garland
Step 1. You need oodles of fabric circles.
I used ones from my fabric ball garland which I deconstructed, or if starting from scratch, just cut out a whole bunch of circles.
When originally cutting them out I used a cotton reel to draw around, then layered up about 5 pieces of fabric and cut them in bulk.
Step 2. Pair up the fabric circles like little round sandwiches, wrong sides facing.
Step 3. Using your sewing machine, sew through the centre of a paired up sandwich of fabric, adding another pair when you reach the edge of the fabric.
Keep going until you have a garland.
Step 4. Hang up the garland. I used these rather cute heart shaped pegs attached to the wall with Command Strips.
Loving how it looks above my rather eclectic collection of odds and sods on the kitchen wall.
