2 Garland Tutorials: {Part One} The Bow Garland

I love garlands. Or buntings. Or banners. Whatever you call them. They are cute and add just the amount of whimsy that I want. And I can take them down whenever I feel like it! 





After having a daughter, my love for girly things has grown times 100! Bows, pink, tulle.. I love it all. I wanted to make her a bow bunting, I mean garland(haha) for her room. It was easy and no sewing required :)


The Bow Garland

You will need:
//Any fabric you would like. I used 3 different patterns.
//Ribbon or rope (to glue your bows to)
//Glue gun and hot glue
//scissors

Directions:
1.Cut fabric into strips. I didn't worry about frayed edges on mine but you can sew yours if you like. This is where you get to decide how long or short you want the bows and how many bows you want. On my banner- I have 16 bows in all. 

2. Tie bows like crazy! :)

3. Hot glue your bows to your ribbon.

4. Thats it! I love how cute it looks. 
A fun, simple decoration perfect for a baby showers, parties or 
your home!
