Valentine’s Day DIY Easy Fabric Scrap Garland Kids Craft

Quick and Easy Fabric Scrap Garland Valentine's Day

 

This is one of the easiest and quickest projects I’ve made – and I absolutely love the outcome! This is a great project for kids to make too.  The best thing is you can make one of these for any season or occasion – simply switch up the fabric colors! This is a great way to use up all those fabric scraps that you may have kicking around too 🙂 Oh and the best part – you don’t even have to know how to sew to make this!

What you’ll need:

Fabric scraps – cut about 1 inch wide by at least 5 or 6 inches long (you can trim them down afterwards)

Ribbon or twine

1. Cut your fabric scraps into 5 or 6 inch long pieces by 1 inch wide (or wider if you like). I like to vary the width of mine, it makes the garland look funkier 🙂

2. Cut a piece of ribbon or twine about 1 foot longer than the total length you’d like your banner to be. Tie a loop in either end.

4. If you find your fabric pieces are too long once they are tied onto the garland, simply trim the ends to your desired length.
