School is back in full swing for most of us, and if you are like me, August is a bittersweet month. Routine is welcomed, but I sure do miss my kids!
With “back-to-school” in the air, I wanted an easy project to display our school colors. With endless fabric options available, you can customize this rag wreath for any school or theme! Using the same instructions for this Burlap Rag Wreath, this one turned out totally different using a larger wreath form and different fabric.
Wire wreath form (18″ shown)
5 assorted fabrics (1 yard each)*
Cut each fabric into 1.25″x10″ strips.
*(I used ribbon as one of my “fabrics.” Fabric is definitely a cheaper option. For reference, I used two 36-inch rolls of ribbon for this wreath, spacing them farther around the wreath to avoid using a third roll).
…forgive me for a few terrible Iphone photos taken at night;)
Begin tying strips in desired order around the inner ring of the wreath form. Tie as many pieces as will fit in each section. This will create a full, fat wreath!
Repeat on third row. **Please note: On this particular wreath shown, I tied fabric onto the first and third rows ONLY. You should have enough fabric to add an additional row, if desired.
Isn’t the assortment of different fabrics fun? The possibilities are endless for you to create your own!
Because the sun would fade this wreath pretty quickly on our front doors, this one will make its home on my daughter’s bedroom door. A fun addition for the start of a new school year!
For a smaller, more compact wreath like this Burlap Rag Wreath, use the 12″ wreath form.
