For a start, the possibilities are endless!! You can use any material, any colour or any pattern you like. And there are a multitude of options for you to explore in the decorating of your big day.

For a start you don’t even need a tutorial for this right?! Simply rip or cut strips of material you have laying around the house or purchased {from charity shops / online or on the high street material shops etc} and loop around the required object {tree, rope, string, chair, key, etc} finishing with a knot to secure. The length and breadth of each strip are dependant upon your use of the strips… One super cute idea is to have these strips as a backdrop to your photography / cake station / head table.

Another incredibly effective idea is to decorate your chairs, you can see how simple it is to literally loop them onto the chair and tie in a very basic knot. In some of the images the material has also been braided and then draped from the back of chairs. So pretty!!

You could make pretty bunting to be hung from the rafters, lay strips of fabric onto the floor to make your aisle or even decorate homemade drinks by tying material around the necks of cute little jam jars. Start collecting now!

How about braiding the material and wrapping it around your wedding bouquet for a very unfussy and rustic look? Decorate a plain table cloth with strips of fabric? Or cut lots of different lengths and have as a table runner.

As I said, the possibilities are endless!! Decorate jam jars with this tutorial. Tie cute little strips around your cutlery. Heck, you could even braid fabric into your hair!

Just think of all the beautiful fabrics you could use too. Vintage / retro prints, fuzzy felts, gorgeously pretty lace… The colour possibilities are limitless too. How about a rainbow coloured scheme? A plethora of pastel prettiness? Crisp white strips with a metallic twist? Or perhaps your favourite colours?

Another idea for a more streamlined look is to purchase rolls of ribbon and cut to your desired lengths.
