I spent yesterday evening assembling this and it looks GREAT. All you need are approximately 2 metres of assorted Christmas prints - red and green obviously, but I had a creamy pattern too. Press and cut into strips 4" long x 2" wide (sorry, I've not got a metric head!). Take a ball of green jute string (which doesn't show if you haven't tied the strips tight together). I left my loose end inside the ball and kept pulling until I'd used my strips. Then you just fold each strip in half and then tie it around the string, alternating colours and pushing the rags close together to hide the twine. Put a loop either end and hang on wall. MANY thanks to Mrs T in America for this - check out her Christmas blog for some great ideas and inspiration.
