Rag Wreath

It was time to take the spring wreath down and get a summer wreath up, but I didn’t have a summer wreath yet =(. There was only one thing to do, go look through the craft section at Wal-Mart and see what I could come up with…..and there it was these beautiful colonial style patriotic fabrics. I had to have them so what better than a rag wreath.

What you’ll need:

2-3 yards of different style/pattern fabrics (for this one I bought 5 different 1/2 yard pieces)

Wreath form

Scissors

Step 1: Lay your fabric out and cut about 1 in strips width wide until it is all in strips. Keep the fabrics in separate piles according to their pattern.

Step 2: Once all your strips are cut, decide on a pattern with your fabrics and begin to tie your fabric around your wreath form, double knotting the knots. Make sure your fabric is really close so that you can’t see the wreath. Continue to tie the fabric all the way around the wreath until the whole thing is covered.

This is what the back of your wreath will look like.

This is my finish product, hope you can find time to make yourself a rag wreath too! ~kelly
