With Labor day and the 4th of July quickly approaching I automatically think red white and blue so I had some huge pieces of fabric that was suppose to be pillows but I decided to make a rag garland for the fireplace along with some rag balls to fill up a pretty pottery blue bowl.
Since you have seen my fire place last at a keywest green/blue color I have stained it a barn red ,one of my favorite colors. This craft is simple and all you need is some festive fabric and a pair of scissors.
I simply started a cut and ripped the material into strips about 3 inches wide. Don't worry about the frays you can trim them later.
For the balls I simply took a strip and wound it different ways as you would with yarn, once I achieved the size I just tuck the end in.
