The Quilt Strips
A long time ago, I had picked up a half finished quilt top at an antique mall and it was in pretty bad shape. I love the colors and fabrics and ultimately ending up cutting it into strips and making streamers from it. I posted about this project years back on our old blog, which is now long gone, and for awhile after that I used them on my bed, and then I pulled them out as decorations for our mantle. I love them as the party streamers and love more you can reuse them year to year and they don’t get ripped, broken or tossed out.
Most recently, they became yet a new decoration in the form of a simple, graphic and, yet, comfortable feeling wreath.
I simply wrapped the streamers around a wreath form that I picked up at our local craft store and simply secured the end with one straight pin.
The nice thing is the wreaths are made with a stryofoam base so after the season passes, I can pull off the streamers without any harm and use them again on the bed or as party decorations. For the one on our door, I hung feather I had picked up on a walk in the center. Bring on spring.
