And the wreath obsession continues…
I love the look of Rag Wreaths. I think most people poke fabrics strips into styrofoam wreaths to make these but I tie strips of torn fabric around grapevine wreaths since it’s cheaper (and easier, if you ask me). Better Homes and Gardens make a grapevine wreath you can buy at Wal-Mart for under $4.
- About 1 3/4 yards of your fabric of Choice (I used muslin for both of these. It’s the same fabric although the lighting makes it look like two different fabrics. Muslin is an inexpensive fabric too.)
- Lace (If you want to make the wreath on the left). I bought two spools of 10 yards each in black and ivory. You could use ribbon as well.
- Ribbon to hang the wreath with (About 18 inches long)
- Embellishments: Wooden Letter (Painted your color of choice), Felt or Fabric Flowers, etc.
- Hot Glue Gun and Sticks
- Sewing Machine/Needle and Thread (optional depending on embellishments)
For the left wreath I made two fabric flower rosettes. To see how I make these using torn fabric and pipecleaners, check out my Rosette Grapevine Wreath Tutorial.
For the Pomela felt flowers (the red ones), I used this tute, only I made my strips of felt 12″x2.5″ and sewed them in half before cutting and hot gluing into flowers.
