This handmade rag wreath is a piece of cake. Not literally like the piece of Raspberry Walnut Torte that I finished off yesterday!
But, it is just super EASY to make! The only tricky part of this craft is choosing the fabric strips. And, I’ve solved that dilemma for you! Actually, Walmart saved that dilemma for you as you will soon read.
And, this sweet, handmade rag wreath is one of those crafts that you can do watching TV.
So, it ranks up there with needlepoint, cross-stitch and other similar crafts that you can do while relaxing on your couch! And, who doesn’t like that!
Supplies Needed to Make this Handmade Rag Wreath Craft
- Assorted fabric strips. Creative Cuts has these inexpensive precut fabric strips in coordinating colors. Walmart carries them in their larger stores. Of course, you’ll have a difficult time choosing which color combination to pick! I wanted a wreath that welcomed Spring, so I chose the gray, blue and coral colors. I purchased two packages of the precut fabric strips and it was the exact amount I needed to make the wreath. I did embellish it a bit with some leftover fabric and ribbon that I had on hand.
- Wire wreath form. These are available on Amazon and craft stores such as Michael’s, Jo-Ann Fabrics, Hobby Lobby and others.
- Sharp Scissors to cut the fabric strips
Instructions to Make this Handmade Rag Wreath Craft
- Since the strips measure 2 1/2 inches by 42 inches, I cut them down to around 1 1/4 inches by 7 inches. I did that by folding them and cutting them in half lengthwise and widthwise until I reached those approximate dimensions. Don’t worry if the sizes are not uniform; they can vary a bit. This craft is very forgiving.
- I then tied the fabric strips into a single knot on the wire wreath. I started with the inner circle and made my way out. I completely filled the wire wreath with the knotted strips of fabric. I tried to space the different fabric patterns around the wreath so that it looked uniform.
And, that’s all there is it to it! It’s as easy as can be with the precut strips that do the fabric coordination for you! This rag wreath would be a lovely Mother’s Day gift too!
Happy Crafting all!
