My Second Wreath

Well, I can't believe I've actually made two wreaths this year!  This is my second one.  It's made from fabric!  Oh my, yes, I actually did something that wasn't paper!  I kind of feel like I'm being a "traitor" to all my scrappy goodies!

This was a really super easy wreath to do.  It's called a rag wreath.  I actually wanted to make another one but I think I'll be waiting to do it next year since the season is coming and going so fast.

You need one floral wire wreath base and some fabric and your two hands or your kids (if you can talk them into helping you). I cut the strips of fabric 1/2" X 6". I can't tell you how many I used but it was a ton. Next, just start tying them onto the base. I double knotted them.

You can do this anywhere.  I took my bag with me everywhere to work on here and there.  I took it in the car and worked while waiting to pick up kids.  I took it in my golf cart while I sat and watched my son train on his dirtbike. I know, that sound strange.  It was quite a site me sitting there working on a wreath in the midst of gas fumes and dirt flying.


 

I added the "Merry Christmas" when I was finished.  It was just a cheap ornament I found at Wal-Mart that I was able to tie onto it.  The green bow was added to the top.


Please share if you make one!
