Vintage Fabric Garland

One of the things I’ve been working on for my son’s Vintage Americana Graduation Parties is a vintage fabric garland. I found some old scraps of vintage, red, white, and blue fabric in my basement. I cut strips into 2″ by 12″ and tied them onto a piece of twine, pushing the pieces close together.

I wanted it to look full and thick. I looked for fabrics with different textures but with the same color palette. Right now it’s about 20 feet long. It has to be able to stand on it’s own at the park pavilion and will be perfect to reuse on the 4th of July.

I can’t wait to show you the final product along with the details of the graduation party!

  1. Oh I LOVE this! SO cute, SO summer, SO fun. I have a tablecloth I could tear up and do this with. Hmmm…

  2. I’ve made two of yhese (one for Fall and one for Julia’s preschool graduation party. They are so easy and colorful! Yours looks great! I second the old sheet idea. I bought 25 cent sheets at a garage sale and had a field day for a buck!

  3. Adore this! xo
