Rag Wreath

Once again, the lovely Benita from The Adventures of Driving Miss Daisy has passed on a super-cute project to us! This rag wreath is so simple to make using materials you probably already have at home! This is a great scrap-busting project that looks fantastic!

What You Need
:
  • Wire Clothes Hanger (who needs a wreath form?)
  • Fabric
Take your wire hanger, leave the hook on, and shape the hanger into a circle. Cut your material into 1x6 inch strips. Simply tie the strips onto the hanger sliding them tightly together as you go.
When you cannot squeeze any more fabric strips onto the hanger you are almost done! Fluff the strips to make the wreath full. For the hook (if you want) take a half inch strip of fabric, about 16 inches long and tie one end to the hook and wind the rest around the hook to cover it. Fabric glue the end to stay put. Top off with ribbons or any other embellishments you wish and voila!

Thanks to Benita for another great idea!
Pin It!

  10. That's cute. Why didn't I think to use a coat hanger on mine instead of buying a wreath form. DUH! Aren't you smart!
