At Drygoods Design, we love some garland action. It’s a rare moment where you can’t see one at the shop. As we worked to get our holiday/winter window install ready, I kept wanting something to reflect snow, ice or the like but didn’t have a ton of time to make anything else, such as snowflakes, stars, etc. After receiving some new metallics and a gorgeous lace, a perfectly simple plan came together.
The fabrics used are the following, which we recommend a quarter yard of each for a nice, long garland (or two), and we cut the strips about 1.5 inches wide by 11 inches long. The two apparel fabrics will have a little extra left over for more fun or trim on another project.
Add a few yards of ribbon or whatever you wish for the “rope” of the garland and you have a beautiful element for the holidays, a wedding or just a room where you want a touch of shine and movement. The combinations of the white and cream and gold and silver are dreamy. The lace just takes it to the next level.
