Well, well! We finally moved into our new place almost two weeks ago. But, time has flown by me without even a blink. The day after we moved in, I was HIT by the flu. I mean, it rocked my boat. Feverish, nausea, sleeping continually. I haven’t been that sick in years. It took me about ten days before I could even walk outside to see our new surroundings. Whew! I am glad my husband didn’t get it, and I hope you don’t get it either! But, while I was lying around, I thought about decorating our new home. I thought about the style I want to create, the colors and crafts to make our home fresh. One thing that I did was to make an Easy DIY String Fringe Tutorial.
I could see it i my mind before I even made it. I knew I had the string and all I would need would be a few other components to make an Easy DIY String Fringe Tutorial.
It is really simple and super easy to make. You can use it for party decorations, Boho style decor, adding some flair to your vintage pieces or even as a garland for a mantel.
This is what you will need:
20 yards-3 Ply Cotton Bakers Twine
*Cut 1 string long enough to go around a jar neck (like I did) PLUS 5 inches, for tying to the jar. OR a length that you prefer.
*Measure 8 inch lengths for fringe. I used 65-8 inch pieces for around my jar top.
Lay out your MAIN string length. Place an 8 inch string (folded in half) under the main string, making sure the ends are even.
Place the OVER the main string, then through the top loop.
Pull as tight or as loose as YOU like. The more tight, the more 8 inch length strings you will need. So, as with the looser, the least amount of string. Does that make sense?
You can crowd them very close or as far as YOU like. Once again, this is what you will like for decorating or accessorizing.
I made my Easy DIY String Fringe in a few hours while watching a movie. I think cutting ALL the 8 inch pieces would be a faster way to create this fringe. Although, I did about 20 at a time, not being real sure how many I would need.
Once I was done adding all 65-8 inch strings, I tied my string fringe around my vintage jar in a small bow. A simple square knot would work, as well.
You can see that each string length varies. It’s because it is cotton string and can stretch, if pulled.
If you want, you can trim the fringe to all be the same length or even into a wavy pattern. I like the various lengths and kind of dis-shoveled Boho style.
I think it kind of looks like a lion’s mane and my husband thinks a hula skirt. Either way, I love it and can’t wait to make more!
