scrap bin garland

i am adding these photos to my blog today with windows flung wide open and the outside temperature at 50. a sunny beautiful day and so i decided to celebrate by making this easy spring garland.

i just dug through my fabric scrap bin and pulled out a few different fabrics. quickly cut them into rectangles and stitched them onto a ribbon.

garlands are a staple around our house when it is someones birthday. i love the festive party flare they provide. hang them anywhere and they are sure to let someone know that something is being celebrated.
i added a ruffle {because aren't they all the rage right now?} to the burlap rectangle and i love the rough texture of the burlap with the sweetness of the ruffle. if you do not sew you could also just glue the ribbon to the fabric with some fabric glue.

this little project took me just a mere 40 minutes from start to finish. any combination of fabric or shape would work for these easy garlands. how cute will this be for easter celebrations, a garden party or even a beautiful rustic wedding?!

i love this one hanging in the kitchen. i think i will leave it here and celebrate the nice weather we are supposed to have all through the weekend (minus a few rain showers).

mandatory outside play until dark and maybe even have to fire up the Bar-B.
sunshine, fresh air in the house, and celebrations that spring is near. life is good.
