Super Scrappy Fabric Wreath

Materials:

  • Everything Mary Handle – SH08002 – LT. Brown
  • Fabric
  • 1 Roll Microspool Ribbon
  • 2″ Ribbon
  • Wooden Embellishment
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Pinking Shears

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut fabric into 42 (9×1.25 inch) strips with pinking shears. The pinking shears will keep the ribbon from fraying. We used seven different fabrics on the wreath pictured, but choose any number of combinations that you want.
     
  2. Take each piece of fabric and tie it around the handle. Double knot the fabric to secure it. Repeat this process until all ribbon strips are tied on.
     
  3. Cut ribbon from your microspool into 6 inch pieces. We used the entire roll. Tie these pieces on here and there throughout your fabric strips. You can use more than one color or style, depending on what design you desire.
     
  4. Use 2″ ribbon to create a bow for the top portions of your wreath. You can secure this bow on with more 2″ ribbon or with ribbon from your microspool.
     
  5. Use any kind of wooden or chipboard embellishment that you like to personalize the wreath. For the wreath pictured we used a little wooden craft frog and personalized it with a permanent marker.
     
  6. This little wreath is a quick easy project that can be made in any array of different themes and color combinations, including holidays and special events like a bridal or baby shower.

I love this scrappy fabric wreath and the colors used on it. The colors remind me of spring. This is a real easy way to finish a wreath fast and I love that you use the round purse handles. This is another way to use up those scraps sitting around. Anyone can do this and have a lot of fun. Lets see what we can find to recycle laying around. Gather the fabric scraps, some ribbon, lace, maybe even some buttons and some embellishments. You are the designer so lets see what you come up with. This would be fun as a family project. Thanks for the great tutorial and a great picture too.
