Hey friends and happy Monday! I hope your weekend was fabulous and you’re ready to take on a new week like a honey badger. Surely you’ve seen the honey badger video, right? Gracious sakes that video makes me laugh so hard. Nothing can stop the honey badger! Anyway, today I have a super quick DIY project for you–an easy lighted Christmas garland. I was actually working on decorating our basement for Christmas this weekend and I ended up creating this lighted garland with extra fabric I had laying around the house. It was sooooo easy, but I’m kind of obsessed with it. So of course I had to share it with you lovely people!
Ok, so I feel silly making a supply list for this project because it’s so simple, but here you go:
- 2-3 different fabrics, cut into strips
- string of lights
I recently shared a detailed tutorial for making a fabric garland similar to this one, so definitely check out that post if you want to see a bit more instruction. I used the exact same technique to tie the fabric to the lights. Just a simple loop knot will do it!
I alternated strips of white burlap and my favorite Christmas-y fabric. You can use anything you like for this project. I wanted the strips to be fairly long, but this would also work really well with shorter strips. It literally took about 20 minutes to get this done from start to finish.
And here it is!
Believe it or not, I found this Coca-Cola crate at a yard sale years ago for $1. ONE DOLLAR. That’s four quarters. One of my best finds ever.
This is such a fun and simple way to spruce up your basic strand of lights. It was so easy to create, I actually kind of want to make a few more. This would also be really cool on your staircase banister, the mantel, or even on your Christmas tree. Lots of possibilities! Ok that’s it for me today. I’m hoping to share a little tour of our basement all decorated for Christmas very soon, so I’m off to finish that area up.
Thanks sooooo much for dropping by today. Let me know what you think of my lighted garland and as always don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions!
