4th of July Raggamuffin Garland

I have made quiet a few of these funky things since seeing them on other blogs…One for each girls room, one for my mother…one for our den, now located in the laundry room…one for fall and now one for the 4th!
I was at JoAnn’s Fabrics a couple of weeks ago…For the first time ever I must add…and saw the coolest thing ever…Fabric quarters already matched up!  So what on Earth did I think of?  A raggamuffin garland!
I got home and started ripping up that fabric and cutting up ribbons…And let me say any stress that you might have is washed away with the ripping of fabrics!
I debated on where to put it…And then I just stuck it up somewhere just to get it out of the way until I found a place and whatdaya know!?  It got stuck in the best place!

I had a few left over scraps and they went into the candy dish below.  Oh and I finally got those ball candles!  My mil got them for me for my birthday!!
