From Christmas Scraps to Spring Sensation

Do you have a ton of extra fabric laying around? We have the PERFECT idea for you... a fabric wreath! This is an excellent way to celebrate the ever-so-near spring season and an excellent project to do with the kids - no needle or thread involved! 


What You’ll Need

  • Fabric shears
  • Pieces of fabric
  • Wire wreath frame with multiple circular hoops (12”-18” in diameter frames, easily found at your local craft store)
  • "Extras" to embellish your wreath (small items to sew or hot glue onto the wreath)


Step 1 - Cut Your Fabric

First, cut fabric into 1” x 6” strips and organize them by pattern. The sizing does not have to be precise, just remember the thicker the pieces, the fuller the wreath. (Beware! If you cut the pieces too thick or short you’ll have trouble tying them - your fingers might grow little mouths and start to yell, “Why would you do this to us?!’).


Step Two - Knot Your Fabric

After your fabric is cut, begin tying the strips in simple knots around the wired frame. As you tie, keep the knots close together and bring all the fabric forward so that one side of the wreath is all fabric, while the other is just the knots. Continue this process around the frame until it’s completely full! 

Tips: Alternate colors and patterns for a more vibrant look and remember, the tighter the bunches, the fuller the wreath! 



Step Three - Add Your Extras

You can get creative with this part! Add your extra little pieces with needle and thread, hot glue or thin wire. 



Step Four - Hang Your Wreath
