Want to know where to buy burlap fabric?
This Rag Tie Garland was so easy to make and didn’t cost much at all! I highly recommend the burlap fabric at burlapfabric.com! Their products are relatively inexpensive but high quality! You can mix and match the burlap fabric with other colors to suit your decor needs, in fact, a teacher reached out to me and said she was using this idea to decorate her classroom with a themed fabric (most teachers choose a theme for their class like fish theme or superhero theme).
The garland can be hung anywhere you choose. I hung mine over a large chalkboard, however, it would look great on a fireplace mantle, above a bed headboard or foot-board, over a window or mirror… the possibilities are endless!
You can even hang this as a burlap Christmas tree garland!
You can also make the length of the garland however long you choose. I cut my ribbon at 60 inches (because that’s what I had on-hand in the color I liked).
How to make the Burlap Fabric Garland:
- Burlap Fabric (I used 2 of these squares
- Buffalo Plaid Fabric or your desired print/color (1/4-1/2 yard should do)
- Rotary Cutter or Scissors
- Cutting Mat (optional)
- Gather supplies. I always order my burlap fabric from burlapfabric.com.
- Cut the fabric into 2″ x 12″ strips. I cut 40 strips total (20 of each fabric) to make my garland.
- Tie each strip around the ribbon in an A/B pattern (or create your own pattern) until you reach your desired length. My ribbon was 6 feet long.
- Hang and enjoy!
Pair this Burlap and Buffalo Plaid Garland with one of my free printable buffalo plaid banners (available in red or black and white!).
