I really really love a good rag wreath. I think I’ve made about four of them for different occasions this year. I just love how soft and textury and homey they are.
Well, I was tempted to make another one for Fall this year. Is there a more textury season than Fall? I think not. I had a little bit of a different idea though after looking at some of my favorite images of Fall entryways.
I used a long piece of twine to tie fabric strips to and made a garland!
Ok, truth be told, this really isn’t much of a garland. I worked on it for about 2.5 hours while watching a movie. When the movie was over, this what I had. More of a little scarf than a garland really. Yup, I made a house scarf! And that’s how it stayed.
2.5 hours of cutting and tying was enough.
The fabric I used was a weird stretchy Lycra with a fake burlappy look printed on one side. It really wasn’t any good for anything else, but it was perfect for this!
Don’t ask me why I had that fabric in the first place…
Can I just say one thing? If you look at my kitchen from this particular angle and ignore what’s reflected in the mirror and squint really hard, this little part of the house looks pretty darn good! Never expected that would happen without the use of a sledgehammer.
So it wasn’t exactly what I envisioned, but my little house scarf still helps to Fallify this little corner and looks pretty snazzy while doing so.
And it distracts nicely from the plastic floors and 1974 range too!
