Quick & Easy 10 Minute Decorating – Fur Garland

Faux-Fur-Christmas-Tree-Garland Welcome to the holiday edition of 10 minute decorating ideas!  Today I am sharing my fabulous faux fur garland.  If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the picture I shared of Peanut’s dress and jacket for my sister’s wedding.   We found the most adorable jacket ever in the most beautiful faux fur you ever did see.  I am kind of obsessed with it and I keep “visiting it”. Before I knew what happened I was in the fabric store cutting line with a bolt of fur fabric in hand.  When it was my turn,  the young man working the counter asked, as he was cutting it, what I was going to do with it.  Umm, I had no idea.   I lamely said maybe a table runner…errr.   He continued by asking if I needed any needle or thread.   To which I replied by explaining that I was really more of a “no-sew” crafter. Cue the laughter from all of the real crafters and sewers in line.  Really, they laughed out loud, especially the other woman working the counter.   Pure embarrassment. Christmas-Garland-Idea So, hopefully I am redeeming myself with my garland idea.  After I got it home, it taunted me lying in a heap on the dining room table.  And it case you are wondering, it would be ridiculous on a dining table (it may however grace my coffee table in the living room!). Quick-Easy-Christmas-Decorating And of course, in true “10 Minute Decorating” style, it could not be easier.  So, I bought 2 yards – a last minute choice during my moments of embarrassment.  But you really don’t need much. Simply start with your fabric and a nice sharp set of scissors. Tutorial-DIY-Fur-Garland Just cut strips on the longest side of your fabric.  In total, I ended up using about seven strips. Fur-Garland-Tutorial Simply run them through the branches on your tree.  When you come to an end, tuck in your end and match up with the end of a new piece and keep going until your complete.  Truly, ten minutes top!
