How to Make a Christmas Rag Wreath
This scrap-busting, rustic, handmade project is a beautiful Christmas decoration which will add to your festive spirit.
You will need:
Christmas fabric and ribbon, Jute cord, a hoop (you can upcycle an embroidery hoop or a round picture frame), scissors or a wheel cutter.
|Gather your Christmas fabric and ribbon.|
|Cut your fabric into approximately 3cm's widths. I folded mine so you cut twice as much which saves time.|
|Cut the strips into 20cm lengths ensuring that you cut the ends of the fabric on a 45 degree angle. This will give your wreath more texture.|
Place the fabric right side down and roll it tightly in the middle.
Tie it around your hoop with a double knot. Repeat.
The fabric should cover all of the hoop. If you push the fabric close together you will achieve a better effect.
|Trim any long ends remembering to cut on a 45 degree angle.|
Continue until all of the hoop is covered. Using Jute cord tie a loop around the top to hang your wreath.
Ta Da!! Hang your handiwork with pride!
