Birthday garland DIY


This morning I made a long list of things that still have to happen before Eva's birthday party (that somehow
sounds much nicer than writing: things I still have to do before the party :-) ).

After I was done, I felt so virtuous that instead of starting to make an inroad into the list, I went and played.


Here is an easy, no-sew birthday garland:


You will need:

Fabric pieces
Fabric paint
Stencils
Some string



I started by cutting the pieces into a triangle with long ends (it will be much easier to knot them later if you make
the ends longer than this):




Georgia, keeping an eye on proceedings:



 Then I painted the letters on with fabric paint, making quite a mess:



After it was dry, I just knotted the triangle pieces onto a string and hung it up:


 



 We might not have enough fondue pots, plates or chairs, but at least the wall will look cute...



 Have a lovely day!

  4. Hi Jutta, thanks for visiting Quirky Vistas, leaving me a nice comment and following. I am happy to be your follower as well. This banner is really cute. The fabrics you chose are so colorful and festive. This is what people will notice more than fondue pots, plates and chairs anyway! Hope the party is a smash hit.

  7. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Very good blog!
