Halloween Fabric Garland - Finished


Assorted Halloween fabric or assorted scrap fabric
Rotary cutter with a pinking blade
Acrylic ruler
Twine or cord
Binder clips


STEP 1: Cutting the Fabric
You will be cutting the fabric into 1” x 6” strips. An easy way to do this is to use a rotary cutter with a pinking blade. The pinking blade will help prevent the fabric from fraying and give it a decorative edge. NOTE: If kids will be helping with this project, you may want to cut the strips 7" long instead of 6". It will be easier for them to tie the overhand knot.

STEP 3: Tie Loop
Tie a loop at the end of the twine. This loop will be used to hang the garland.

STEP 4: Secure to Work Surface

STEP 5: Tying Fabric to Twine
Tie the fabric strips to the twine in a set pattern or randomly using an overhand knot. Continue adding strips until the garland is the desired length or all the strips have been used.

Cross the ends of the fabric strip over each other.
