This fabric scrap wreath turned out really cute, and it was a lot of fun to make too!
To be honest, I was afraid it was going to turn out to be one of those craft projects I never finish because I don’t do particularly well with tedious, but I was actually able to finish it all in one day by just working on it a little bit here and there, so I consider that a win.
I took this picture of the back to show you the five different fabric patterns I used. When I was shopping for fabrics (because I don’t have enough Christmas scraps to make a wreath just yet!), I started with the dark red fabric with the gold and red design and began pulling in coordinating fabrics, including the red holly, the solid red and the solid gold. I added the red mesh just for fun, and I love the sparkle it adds to the wreath!
- coordinating fabric in 4-7 different designs*
- 1.5″ wreath
*I used a little more than a yard of fabric altogether.
Tear your fabric into 1″ x 12″ strips. You could cut them instead, but tearing them is faster and gives the wreath a more “scrappy” look, which I think adds to the charm!
Choose one or two fabric patterns to serve as the base of your wreath and begin by tying the strips to the wreath at random intervals. If you’re type-A like me, you might have trouble making these truly random (it’s so tempting to fall into a pattern!), but the more random, the better.
Fill in the spaces with remaining fabric strips, alternating the placement of the knots around the front of the wreath for the best coverage.
When you’re done, adjust the knots to cover any gaps, snip off any long threads and hang it on your door!
