Easy & Temporary Garland

I think it’s no secret that I adore the now-discontinued Wonderland line of fabric by Momo.  When I heard it was going out of print, I bought some yardage and a layer cake, both of which have been sitting on my shelf for over a year now because I’m too indecisive to use them.

Finally I decided I may as well get to look at all the lovely prints, so I used my layer cake to make this fun & easy garland.  After my complicated 3 day hat tutorial, I decided this was just the thing to counteract all that math and ease us into the weekend.

Now pay attention, because it’s really complicated.  Grab a layer cake.  Fold your square in half, so it makes a triangle.  Knot the ends of the triangle together with another one.  You still with me?  Keep doing that.  You’re done.

This way I can see all that loveliness whenever I want, all strung up around my craft room.  And with no cuts or seams, I haven’t committed to anything.  Though I’m fairly certain that when I do work up the gall to sew this fabric, I’m going to straight up copy this:

Why mess with perfection?


  1. CUUUUUTE. We did my daughter’s room in wonderland fabrics! Funny, my craft room is the least decorated room in the house. Great idea!

  2. Puuuuuuurty! And I LOVE Film in the Fridge. And thanks for my vocab. lesson of the day! All in all, a successful post.

  3. Oh, fabulous and quick…my kind of project. I may have to steal this idea for my youngest daughter’s birthday party next weekend. The kiddos will enjoy working on the project together.

  4. Very cute idea!

  5. Cute! I like that you can untie it and use the fabric. Great thinking!
