Fabric Wreath

It’s November! And it’s finally starting to cool down. When I got married, we moved to Minnesota and had some very cold winters (even a snowstorm in May) and now that I’m living in South Carolina we’re having very warm falls. I think extreme weather follows us. šŸ˜‰

Anyways, if you are looking for a cheap, cute fall project look no more. I made this wreath last year and I still love it.

Fabric Wreath

Supplies:

  • Small Wire Wreath- I bought it from Hobby Lobby for a couple dollars. (not pictured.)
  • Fabric- You can choose any color but I wanted to go with a neutral. (I think I used about a yard of fabric-could be a little less or more.)
  • Scissors

I cut long strips of fabric and then cut the strips into 4’s (about 2 inches long each.)

On the back side of the wreath, tie the strip of fabric into a knot.

Once its tied, turn it over so that the fabric is sticking out of the front.

Continue this process of tying from the back and flipping them to the front across each wire.

Disclaimer: It does take awhile to make. I would just work on it a couple hours at night while watching TV.

Once you have tied the entire wreath, flip it over. Take your scissors and start cutting the fabric down. I basically kept cutting the fabric until it looked fluffy, and not long and stringy.

…And you’re done!

I think it’s a versatile wreath, you can really use it all year around if you wanted. I also think it’d be really cute in a girl’s room or hanging from a coat rack. The options are endless.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
