We have a really nice quilting store around here that happens to be about 5 minutes from my work. I love going in there and looking at all of the fabrics and cute projects that they have on display. The problem? I can’t sew. The last time I sewed was my grade 8 sewing class. I came out with a great big C (my lowest mark EVER!) and a crummy pair of shorts. I’ve kind of stayed clear of the sewing machine since then.
I am always on the hunt for fabric crafting projects that require no sewing (check out my letter organizer) So, I was very happy when I came across a Rag Wreath at the quilting store a couple of months ago. Finally a reason to buy some fabric!
Fabric cut into strips. My strips were approximately 11″ by 2″ but I did vary the sizes slightly. I used about 1 yard of fabric in total.
Bend the wire hanger into a circle. The hook on top can be handy to hang your wreath.
Cut all of the fabric into strips. Then tie, tie, tie until your wreath is as full as you would like it. I fluffed mine up at first but then decided I liked it a little more structured.
I have been playing around with what to add to the wreath. I didn’t want to add too much but thought it needed something. What do you think of the wooden Welcome sign?
