Weekend Recap: Rag Wreath
I finally jumped on board and made a rag wreath this weekend. These have been all over the blogosphere for quite awhile, so I’m surprised it’s taken me this long to get on board. I created this rag wreath for the upcoming college football season and in honor of my Alma Mater. Go Vols!
This is a super simple craft any beginner can complete in an afternoon.
- Fabric (I used about 3 yards total, but you could use more or less depending on how full you want your wreath.)
- Wire Wreath Form
- Rotary Cutter or Scissors
I bought two different University of Tennessee patterned fabrics and cut each of those to the same size using the width of my ruler as a guideline. I used a half a yard of each of these fabrics.
Then, I cut those long strips of fabric in half to create smaller fabric strips.
From there, it was as simple as tying the strips of fabric on the wreath form.
After I added all of the patterned fabric, I felt like the wreath was missing that orange color the Vols are known for. We do bleed orange, after all. I used about a yard of the solid orange fabric.
This time, though, I cut the fabric differently. Instead of perfectly proportioned strips of fabric, this fabric was cut to various lengths and widths.
Once the orange fabric strips were tied on the wreath form, it was done!
