Contrary to what you may think, garlands are not only an exclusive ornament to use at Christmas time but with a little imagination you can change their appearance to make a beautiful and original decoration for the door of your house in any season of the year. In fact, you can be inspired by the seasons to make a different garland and change the decoration of your doors whenever you want.
Today we are going to tell you how to make a garland with fabric that you can modify according to your tastes and needs, obviously you can use the colors, materials and accessories of your preference to give your personal touch to this ornament.
To make this garland you’ll need:
- T-shirt yarn of the color of your preference (you can make combinations of colors).
- Circular base.
- Fabric, ribbon or cord.
- Ornaments of your choice.
To begin, apply a little glue to the circular base and wrap it with the t-shirt yarn, making sure that there is no empty space left; you can make color combinations or mix t-shirt yarn with other types of fabric to create different textures.
When the base is completely covered with t-shirt yarn, take a piece of fabric, a ribbon or a string and tie it to the garland. This will help you hang it.
Now it’s time to decorate: using glue, place the decorations of your choice in an area of the garland. The idea is to create a focal point of attention (try not to overdo this step). As you can see in the following images, you can choose several types of decoration:
- Paper flowers.
- T-shirt yarn flowers.
