3 fabric bandannas in 3 different colors
-my bandannas measured 20-22″ square
Tape Measure or Ruler
Measure your space you want to hang your banner. Add 8″ onto that measurement and cut a piece of twine that long. Slip knot the ends and use command hooks to hang in your space to make sure it will work. Adjust the knot accordingly if necessary to lengthen or shorten the twine. Remove from your space and return to a table.
On a flat surface, open one bandanna. Lay your measuring tape across the bottom edge and cut small slits 1″ apart into the bandanna. The measurements don’t have to be exact – in fact, the more irregular the better. Remove the tape measure when you have the entire bandanna cut. Now cut the slits all the way through, to the end of the fabric so you have long pieces. Cut each long piece into thirds. Usually it’s about 1″ x 7″.
Repeat until all bandanna colors are cut.
Find the center of your twine by folding it in half and tie a piece of fabric onto it by knotting it once tightly. You can add a binder clip or piece of tape to that center piece so that you know where the center is. Now begin to tie the remaining pieces onto the twine. I like to grab a pile of ten pieces and tie it to the right of the center, then 10 pieces to the left, and so on making sure it’s even. You can tie in a pattern or keep it completely random.
The best part of this Easy DIY Bandana Rag Garland is that you can mix and match whatever colors you want and change up the length to suit your needs!
