We are all super busy during this time of year. Okay, we are all super busy all.the.time.
But I do like to decorate for the Holidays. I buy little things here and there and actually love finding decorations at thrift stores or a relative’s attic best.
The rest I do like to make. Making holiday decorations takes time ..and money so I really try to find ideas that are simple, easy to do, take no time and use existing materials that I already own so are virtually free. Right?
Well I have an obscene stash of fabric. There was a time(before Astrid) that I used to sew quite a bit. I still sew – but not like I should. So I have bins and bins of fabric.
Do you all have a fabric stash? If so – here is a super easy way to decorate using your stash. The great thing about this idea is it isn’t just a Christmas craft – you can do this as a decoration any time of the year for any occasion or in colors that match your decor to leave up all year.
Fabric Stash Bundle Decorations:
What you will need:
A yard or a few of 3 or more different complimentary fabrics from your stash (no cutting necessary)
Something to tie the bundles – you can use a rope, a ribbon, another piece of cut fabric, muslin – anything really
What you need to do:
Fold the fabric to the heights you want – usually a different height for each fabric
Roll each fabric tightly and pin to secure
Lay the fabric rolls in whatever order/pattern you want
Tie together to hold( you can even use buttons or buckles on your tie if you are feeling especially crafty)
And place upright to display
Super easy and gorgeous. You could also take holiday linen napkins or placements and tie them together to create a gorgeous decoration if you do not have a fabric hoarding issue.
Have fun and Happy Holidays!
