Actually, no real geometry was used in assembling these quick home-made garlands for a friend’s bachelorette weekend in upstate New York. I used brown bags from the grocery store and cut up a bunch of haphazard triangles, while watching the West Wing (working my way through all the seasons for the third time). I probably could have taken out triangles that had writing on them, but nothing says “celebration” like “CONTAINS 40% POST CONSUMER CONTENT.” Also, I like how the writing and little bits of red print broke up the garland.

Once cut up, I just fed the triangles into the sewing machine, using regular sewing thread, and voila. Basically, the quick budget and brown version of this or this.
