Lay out your first piece of material.
Cut slits in the top of your fabric every 1 1/2 inches or so.
Go to each slit, starting on one side and rip the fabric down to the bottom.
Set aside your fabric strips in a pile.
Repeat with additional material pieces.
Fold one strip of fabric in half, laying the end of your ribbon over the loop.
Pull the two ends of the fabric strip through the loop.
Continue with additional fabric strips, alternating material as you go.
Continue until all your fabric strips are used.
Cut the other end of your ribbon and tie knots on each end.
Hang where desired.
