DIY Patriotic Fabric Garland


Sharing simple tutorial on how to create patriotic fabric garland.


  • Farbic | I used an old pillow case-non cotton
  • Food Coloring | Blue & Red
  • Twine
  • Scissors


  • Cut the fabric into strips | I cut 30 strips at 10in each
  • Mix 10 drops of red food coloring with 1tbls of water
  • Add the fabric strip to the dye

  • Repeat with all the strips


  • Lay the strips flat to dry


  • For the white strips I emerged the fabric into brown wax and 2 tbls of water mixed
  • The white strips will have an old look


  • Tie each fabric piece onto the twine | I tied mine in the traditional red, white and blue order


  • The food coloring dye will give the fabrics lighter colors so I dipped each strip into the dye for a dramatic look

Y’all are finished
