Rag Garland Christmas Lights

This is a fun and easy project to use up all those small scraps of fabric you've been saving.

I began with scraps of grain sack, painters cloth, and burlap. 

I tore it into strips that were long enough to knot around a set of Christmas lights. The lights for this project stay cool which is recommended by Homeroad.

I began at one end and kept tying until I got to the other end. 

In between the grain sack and painters cloth I added ribbon and burlap strips for color.

I even added some thick jute for interest and texture.

The lights got hung around my kitchen sliding door.

The lights look gorgeous when they are on and when they are off the rag garland looks beautiful!

Beautiful, easy, and a great repurpose for all your fabric scraps!

  2. Do you have to worry about the garland getting hot with the lights and all of the fabric?

    1. Hi Tess. I used cool lights for this project and I suggest nobody uses lights that get hot. Also a good idea not to leave unattended.
