Wonderland Tutorials: Playing Card Garland

July 18, 2011 § 4 Comments

Remember how I was going to write tutorials for some of the things I did for my Mad Tea Party?

Remember how I did…one?

*cough*

Well, I have more!

I knew that I’d get around to them eventually.

This will be a tutorial for the playing card garland that I made. To make your own, you will need:

-Playing cards (this is a great use for that incomplete deck of cards that we all have in the bottom of the games cupboard! You know, the deck with only 51 cards?)

-‘Invisible’ nylon thread

-a sewing machine

It’s a pretty straightforward project–thread your sewing machine with the invisible thread, pulling out a long tail of thread before you start sewing (this is so that you’ll have something to hang your garland from!).

Pop a playing card into the machine, sewing down the middle….or, y’know. Mostly down the middle.

As you near the end of the first card, line up a second card with the bottom edge of the first, and just keep sewing!

When you get to the end of the second card, line up a third card, and keep sewing. Repeat until your garland is as long as you want, or until you run out of cards!
