My mama is working on a fall table runner and asked me if I wanted her fabric scraps. Sure, I said. I knew just the thing to do with them.
I cut them into strips approximately 1.5” by 6”, frayed the edges just a little, and tied them onto a long strip of brown ribbon. Such a seriously simple and cute way to decorate. I love the scrappy, homespun feel. I hung it up on my kitchen window to add some fall color to the plain window (still haven’t gotten a curtain).
I also hung a mini wreath (thrifted, of course) below it. I have lots of leftover canvas dropcloth left over from the teepee we made last year. I cut a strip, frayed the edges a bit, and wrapped it around the wreath (using hotglue to hold) and made three little rosettes and hotglued them on. An excellent tutorial for making fabric rosettes can be found here. I attached another strip to hang it with and was done.
Have you made anything beautiful with just scraps lately?
