This one was made from Christmas trinkets for packages and/or ornaments to hang on the tree.
If you want to make one before the fall run to Hobby Lobby as they have a lot of Christmas items out now. This one is made from ribbon and pieces cut from scraps of fabric. The NOEL and felt mitten was most likely bought at Hobby Lobby. The jingle bell came from the Dollar Tree.
I used red clothes pins that are decorated with wooden or plastic snowflakes to put on the ends not only for decoration but also to clip on to the package or tree. White package string was used on which to tie all the scraps and ribbon. You could use white cording that is used to line piping to hold the ribbon and fabric as well.
If you'd rather make a large decorative swag for anytime of the year, this coastal swag at The Shabby Creek Cottage is the bomb. It's in some of my favorite colors - and the ones we have in our kitchen. The mini-lights on this garland take the whole idea up a notch. Check it out for yourself.
Recently, Target had red, white, and blue strings of lights marked down. They could be used with those colors of fabric and ribbon for a fourth of July swag. I think a Halloween one would be cute, or do one in pinks and purples for a little girl's birthday party or girl's bedroom, etc., etc., etc.
Hope you are having a great summer.
