- Start by selecting the fabrics you want to use for your garland. Choose different colors and patterns that complement each other and match your desired aesthetic.
- Measure and cut the fabric into long strips. The length and width of the strips depend on how long you want the garland and the desired fullness. A common size is 2 inches wide and 6 inches long.
- Fold each strip in half lengthwise, with the printed side facing inwards.
- Sew along the open side of the folded strip, leaving the ends open for turning inside out.
- Use a safety pin or a thin stick to turn each tube right side out. Ensure the corners are well-defined.
- Press the fabric tubes to flatten them.
- Once all the tubes are prepared, it’s time to assemble the garland. Take a long piece of twine or ribbon and tie a knot at the end.
- Slide each fabric tube onto the twine, pushing them close together. You can alternate colors or patterns to create a varied design.
- Continue adding fabric tubes until you reach your desired garland length.
- Once you’re done, tie a knot at the other end of the twine to secure the garland.
