Hello there Buttoneers! I have a lovely last minute holiday season dose of crafty goodness for you today. In fact my lovelies, this is the last Tutorial Tuesday of 2014! Wowee! Doesn’t that sound weird!? I am not nearly ready for Christmas yet let alone for a whole new year! 

Well, in my crazy last few weeks I have been thinking about crafting at Christmas time and wondered what I could do with all of the remnants of fabric and scrap ribbon and lace pieces that I have hoarded carefully collected over the years that are taking up much needed studio space…

…which is when the magic happened! That ah-ha! moment when it all clicks into place…I would combine the two and create a fabric scrap Christmas garland!

Not only will it look super festive but help with the hoarding problem collection.

Then I thought “how can I make a Christmas craft without making a quick and easy tutorial for my Buttoneers!?” So here you go…Enjoy!

How did you get on!? I found that I started off slow, thinking that I would never fill the whole length of string! But, alas! I did, and once I had passed the half way mark I really got into the crafty groove and didn’t want to finish! I am so pleased with the result too, I wasn’t sure if it would look full enough but once I had finished and stepped back from tying all of those little knots, I loved it! 

I love the addition of the red and white lace, not only does it add a lovely texture but it fills the garland well making it fuller. I definitely think I will be making more of these, I can see them becoming quite addictive and I am using up all of those fabric scraps after all…now I will just have to buy new craft supplies to fill the void! hehe! 

What colours would you have used? What colours do you love at Christmas time? If you love Christmas Crafts, you will love last years Quilted Christmas Bauble Tutorial – It is my favourite Christmas craft! Have you made any Christmas crafts this year? I would love to hear all about them!
