The topic for this week’s Tuesday Display Chain is ~*Holiday Crafting*~. Misi asked us to show our crafting projects completed from previous seasons or in the works for this season.
I haven’t gotten my Christmas decorations out of storage yet, so I do not have any past projects to share. And I have only just begun working on this year’s craft ideas. I had planned to make a homespun rag-tied garland for a gift and had already gotten the supplies together and prepared the rag strips for tying when Misi posted this week’s topic. This was the push I needed to get started on my project. Then I saw the idea in A Primitive Place magazine (page 109) for a Rag-Tied Twinkle Light Garland and I decided I needed to make one of these for myself – so I added another project to my list.
These are the rag strips ready to be tied.
This is the garland I am working on for a gift. (I plan to add something else to this, but I can’t give the idea away yet – in case my friend reads this post.)
Here is the beginning of my Rag-Tied Light Garland. I had started tying strips on a strand of twinkle lights, but today I found mini silicone lights and knew this was what I wanted for my garland. I tied a few strips this afternoon so I could show how it is going to look. I plan to use this on my grapevine tree and love how it is turning out.
If you’d like to make a rag-tied garland check out A Primitive Place Magazine for instructions.
Be sure to visit Misi at 1890 Gable House Musings to see what she and the other participants are working on. I am grateful to Misi for this week’s topic – it challenged me to begin working on my projects.
With A Grateful Heart,
