Rag Wreath Tutorial

The Rag Wreath- The easiest craft you’ll do all day!

Rag Wreath Tutorial

A rag wreath is the first crafty project I tried back several years ago. I wanted to make something that was cute- but EASY. This is it! You can actually make this while relaxing in front of the television! There are only a few supplies you need for this project:

1- wire wreath- I used a big one- 18″ (12″ is simpler to complete quickly)

Fabric- I used several colors, about 1/2 a yard each color

Scissors or rotary cutter

Patience

Start by cutting your strips of fabric. I made mine 2″ x 8″ (for a 12″ wreath you can make them shorter). Some people just rip their fabric into strips. I like having more control, but if you feel like ripping- rip away!

After I cut my strips of fabric, I stack them up. I can’t really tell you how much to cut… just a few nice stacks. It’s good have them organized if you have lots of colors just to be sure you have variety as you go around the wreath.

Then start tying. I use a double knot- but there’s no rule that says you have to. Again- I like to be precise so I lay out the strips in the order I am going to tie them. I do one section at a time and am careful to start each row with a different color so there are no concentrations of any one color in any spot. I continue in the same order on each row.

 

I just stack up my strips of fabric next to me while I sit and watch TV (baseball likely) and just tie away and before you know it…

    Do you layer the strips the tie? Or do you tie each one individually?

      Monica- I tie each strip individually. I just fill up each section and start the next. Thanks for stopping by! Blessings- Kelly
