Scraptastic Fabric Wreath

By: Janice Fox

This Scraptastic Fabric Wreath is a great way to use up leftover fabric scraps.  This is also a great wreath for indoors or out.  The colors of this fabric wreath make it perfect for the springtime!  Add some soft pinks or yellows to make it even more festive!

Scraptastic Fabric Wreath


  • A straw wreath, either in its original plastic or wrapped in plastic wrap
  • A few yards of fabric in colors and patterns appropriate for the season also the thicker the material the fuller it will be.
  • Small Phillips head screwdriver
  • Pinking Shears (Gives the wreath character)
  • Optional: Seasonal accents or coordinating ribbon and glue gun or craft adhesive
  • Hot Glue and Gun
  • Decoration – I used a nest, eggs and bird of choice


  1. Straw Wreath - When taking out of package, shake outside and shake off excess straw.
  2. Fabric: As you start cutting out fabric cut a 2 inch width and length of fabric. This is used for the bows.
  3. Using the scissors, snip all of the fabric into approximately two or three inch squares. Depending on how full you would like the wreath to be. You can use one type of fabric, or have fun and use a combination of coordinating and complementary colors, patterns, and fabrics. The wreath above has 2 yards of 3 different fabrics.
  4. Place the head of the screwdriver into the center of a fabric square. Press the fabric firmly through the plastic and into the wreath. Giving a twist gives a fuller look. I start at the bottom and go around and work your way up into the inside.
  5. Continue to push each piece of fabric into the wreath, placing the swatches of fabric as close together as possible. You do not want the wreath to look sparse, but rather full and vibrant, so don't be afraid of using too much fabric. If you feel that the fabric is not staying firmly in place, you can dot each piece with craft glue prior to pushing it into the straw wreath.
  6. Tie a coordinating piece of ribbon onto your completed wreath, making a big bow, if desired. Or, if you wish, glue on a decorative accent.

cute idea!


What a cute idea. The fabric would be right side against the screw driver. Apply a drop of glue and push the fabric into the wreath with a slight twist. Another idea, is to use pinking or decorative edge scissors to cut your 2 inch squares out.

When you are putting the material around the screw driver is the material wrong side up or good side up.

how large a wreath? 2yds per different fabric or 2 yds total fabric? too vague. also sounds messy with straw wreath.

I think a styrofoam wreath would work and be less messy.
