Rag light garland


You will need a set of light. I used LED mini style 20 count. Homespun fabric or any fabric you prefer, scissors, ruler and plenty of patience.

Cut your fabric into 1 inch by 6 inch strips. Amount of strips depends on how long your light string is. When you have a good amount of strips cut start tying the strands in between your lights. I put 5 strands in between each light. You want them close enough together so you don't see the wire. Continue until you have reached the end of the light strand. After the last light I didn't go all the way to the plug. I added 5 more strips to end it.

      I put one on my Christmas tree last year (2018). I had a small tree so one string did the trick but if you have a traditionally big tree, you will need several strands. Also, they look great in an out of your balusters on your stair railing.
