kojotutorial: scalloped garland

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

This little scalloped garland (shown at Burke’s Hello Yellow party) is both easily adaptable and fabulously festive! They could be used for parties or even for home decor. The how-to is super simple- I can’t wait to see your renditions of this little gem!

To make a scalloped garland, cut out a couple of cardstock template circles (mine were 2.5″ and 1.5″ circles). With a fabric pen, trace onto fabric. Cut out a whole pile of fabric circles (I used twenty for a six foot garland).

Put glue (just regular old glue stick glue) on the back of the fabric. Run a line of baker’s twine (yarn would do, too) down the middle of the fabric circle.

Sandwich the sticky, glue-y sides together.

Repeat to make the scalloped pattern.

Hang on a treat buffet (or use a mini-version as a cake topper) and admire. Festive right?

Perfect for a garland loving gal like myself! In fact, I think I might be using it again this weekend for baby shower decor. Love the multi-purposing! Do y’all re-use party decorations like we do?

ps- Thanks for all of the blue dress compliments (and tutorial requests) yesterday. The how to is on my to do list.

EDITED TO ADD- The winners of the Paper Coterie giveaway were #54 (Stephanie) and #39 (Karla)! CONGRATS!
