Amy Butler and MaryJane Butters, I used a mix of sewing items and farm and garden staples.
The yard and garden section of home stores were also a big influence on my designs for the weekend. Cheap. Bulk. Two very key words. 50 cent tomato cages seemed to be ripe with possibility. Oh, well, what do you know-seems they are a perfect thing to wrap in yarn. (They'll also show up again later for another centerpiece..) I chose colors that would match my palette, then started wrapping. I tied the end securely to a spot where the metal crosses, then made sure to end up there again to tie it off. If you try one at home, just have fun with different weight yarn, varying thickness and doubling up.
If you've been keeping up, fabric scraps have been playing a large role in my Creative Connection designs. Here is another version of a garland, fit for draping over a doorway or festooning your craft room.
First, cut your yarn to desired garland length, then tie a couple of fabric scraps (cut about 1"wide and 4"long) to secure the end. I also tied a loop on the end of my yarn for hanging later. Now, just alternate tying fabric scraps, threading wooden spools and clipping wooden clothespins.
