Make a fun Fabric Wreath!
I was thinking about how to decorate this season when I remembered a fun fabric wreath I made when I was a Girl Scout! I had so much fun making the craft and I was so happy when I brought it home and saw the delight on my mother’s face. Do you like to make your own decorations? Do your kids like crafts? Try this Fabric Wreath and add some color and inspiration to your decorating!
This wreath is fun to make and easy too!To make this craft you will need: - A Straw Wreath - Colorful Fabric - Pinking Shears -Ribbon for a bow -An awl (or thin screw driver or retractable pen)
Cut 3″ x 3″ squares of fabric using the pinking shears. You will need to use a generous amount of fabric – approximately 4-5 fat quarters.
Once you have cut your fabric into squares, use the awl to push the fabric into the wreath. To this, place the fabric print/color side up, place the awl in the center of the fabric and gently push the fabric about a 1/4″ into the wreath.
Continue repeating this step placing the sqaures fairly close together. You can decide base on your own taste how tight or loose you would like the wreath to appear by increasing or decreasing the space between fabric squares. You will only need to cover the front of the wreath, and a little around the edges so as not to show the straw.
Once your wreath is covered in the fabric squares, create a decorative bow and a loop to hang your wreath using your favorite colors of matching ribbon.
