Fabulous Fabric!

Last week I saw a fabulous idea over at Landee See, Landee Do.
She made decorative vase fillers with styrofoam balls and fabric!  Genius!
I had been wanting to add some punches of sunny colours to our living space, 
but I didn’t know how I was going to do this.  
I wanted bright colour, just a touch, nothing overwhelming, but still noticeable.  
This was the perfect solution!  
Just what was needed to add a lovely touch of summer colour to this space!
Here’s How-To:

I dug around and found some scraps of fabric, in bright cheery colours.
Then I made the strips about 3/4 inch wide, 
by making a little slit with my scissors at the top of the sheet, then I ripped each strip off.  
I did it this way, because I wanted the frayed edges.  
It’s messy, but I like the effect.
You will have to pull away stray threads…
Then I just randomly wrapped the ball with the fabric, and used a bit of glue to secure the ends.
A simple and pretty decoration!
The perfect, subtle little punch of colour for my summer mantel!
Thanks for reading!
Have a colourful day!

  1. They are perfect and make me smile. A great way to add color without plastering it everywhere. Isn’t it fun to change up for the seasons? I love it but have to admit spring is my favorite decorating season…and fall, well I like Christmas, too…hmmm…maybe I just like to decorate!

  2. What a great idea! Now I have something to do with all those left over fabric scraps. Thanks for sharing! Visiting from Blue Cricket Design 🙂
