Rag Wreath Tutorial


I have wanted to make a homemade wreath for a long time! I finally found the time to make a "rag" wreath and I love it! It was so easy and simple, anyone could make one of these.



Supplies Needed:

12 inch wire wreath
8-10 Assorted fabrics/ribbons
(I probably used about 1/4 yard of each fabric and a couple yards of ribbon to complete this wreath)



Step1: Cut out your fabric strips into about 1 inch thick by 6-8 inches long. The easiest way to do this is snip the fabric and then rip it. I used burlap as well, but you can just rip burlap so I had to cut it and I also had to cut the ribbon.



Step 2: Tie a piece of fabric on your wreath in a double knot. Continue until your wreath is very full.



I love how it turned out and I love how it is so simple to make! I might just have to make another one!

I love how this turned out too! I made a Halloween rag wreath with a styrofoam wreath. It's one of my favorite crafts ever!

That is so beautiful! I have one of those wire wreath forms in the attic, so I'm definitely going to pull that out and make one.

I really like this wreath. You did a great job pulling in all the right colors and texture. Curious tho did you put tie the fabric and or ribbon around the two inner rings all the way around? And if so did you just cut this pieces a little longer than all the rest?
