How To Make Your Own Simple Yarn Garland
I wanted something light, simple and most importantly, toddler-friendly to spruce up Coral’s crib. I came up with the idea of making a simple yarn garland. It can be hung up on a wall if you prefer, but I attached it to the side of Coral’s crib instead.
To make a simple yarn garland, you will need:
First, you need a string, as long as you want the yarn garland to be. Mine was long enough to fit across the end of Coral’s crib.
Start cutting the yarn in the size length you want. You can do different sizes to give it a textured look or make it even. My yarn garland is a little bit in between. I didn’t really pay attention to the measurement. I just cut them as I go, using the last piece of yarn as a measurement.
Believe me, you will cut a lot of yarn pieces. This project is time-consuming, but so, so easy and worth the time! You can use this time to cut the yarn pieces thinking about that last episode of The Walking Dead.
When you are done with cutting all the pieces, start doing this:
If you find yourself running out of yarn pieces, cut some more using the last piece of yarn as a measurement.
You can do a full yarn garland from one side of the crib to another side or leave it empty on both sides.
Now, it is time to attach the minimalist yarn garland to the side of the crib. You can use command hooks, but I prefer to tie the end of both string sides to both edges of the crib.
I love the white on white design of this simple, easy, and cheap yarn garland. Coral loves to run her fingers through the yarn.
