I absolutely LOVE this project because it helped me solve a drab problem. It was time to celebrate, but the trees were still Winter-bare. I couldn’t stand the look of twigs against the blue, Spring sky. However, it was nothing that a quick trip to the thrift store couldn’t solve. After a bin dive through curtains and sheets, Sam and I found some shades and fabrics that would do the trick. After the fabric had a run in my washing machine, it was time to cozy up on the floor with Ash (my Bordercollie), and start tearing.
To keep things simple, I strung only 10 flags on each cotton string. If you decide to give this project a shot, you have got to get your hand on some cardboard to wrap your strings around…it will make storage, travel, and hanging a cinch.
So, what do you think? Festive?
