The Scrappy Ribbon Garland

To celebrate another successful Christmas season for Whitney Caroline Designs, I decided to take all of this year's ribbon scraps and make something wonderful! With the help of two strands of Christmas lights, I believe I have done just that! So, after several hours of tying and trimming, I proudly present, "The Scrappy Ribbon Garland!"



Here are a few close-ups...

  1. Oh what a fun idea! I just found you at "Southern Hospitality." Your cute icon caught my eye, and then I saw that "great minds think alike" as we both chose the "Cutest Blog on the Block" background too! :-) The swag looked like a lot of fun to make and it looks so festive displayed! Thanks for a great idea! :-)

  29. I love this! I am so tired of my overused garland of 8 years that I am ditching all of it and am going to make a few strand of this. Well, maybe not ditch it but at least give it a rest for a year or so.

  36. I found this on Pinterest...one of my first pins. And I saved it for the right time. I live in an apartment...with typical white walls and white miniblinds. I am using this idea to make swags on my windows and to bring color into the drab living room! I am making mine with fabric strips that match the colors in the room...yeah...rainbow! If possible, I'll try to find a way to send you a photo when I am done! Thanks for the great idea! Annie Fentz ~*
