First of all, we bought the quarter cuts of fabric at Walmart and these are the colors we chose. We cut it into squares and then cut the squares into about an 11/2 inch wide strip. These are the strips that you see here.
Then we started tying them around the light strand (50) in random order just making sure the colors were mixed up. We thought it would look better like that, rather than making a specific pattern.
Just keep adding ties until you have the whole strand covered.
Here you see the finished product hanging over the doorway.
A closeup view of it while it is lit up. :)
This is what it looks like with the lights off. ;)
I am really excited to get back to my room and see how it is going to look over my classroom door! Let me know what you think!
