EASY SPRING RAG WREATH

All the perfect imperfections just get me every time. I’ve never been one to be too keen on things being perfect though, I am a mom of four after all. We have coloring on the wall, chipped dishes from the girls dropping them a little too hard into the sink, and don’t get me started on what the inside of our minivan looks like…so yeah, I LOVE imperfections.

This craft fits right into my love for imperfections. the unevenness, the frayed edges, the random fabric pattern, it’s a beautiful mess! And it is SO easy to make. You literally don’t have to have any “crafty” abilities to create this gorgeous wreath.

And did I mention it’s SUPER INEXPENSIVE to make? Yup! For less than $10 you can pick up everything you need to have a perfectly imperfect wreath for spring!

Here’s what you’ll need

  • a wire wreath form

  • 4 fat fabric quarters

  • scissors

  • something to hang it with. I used thick braided rope

And that’s it! I’m telling you this tutorial is sooooo simple!

Ok, let’s get started. First, using your scissors you need to cut slits every 3/4” on the widest side of your fabric. Then rip them off individually. I’ll post a video at the very end of this so you can watch how to do this.

After all your fabric is ripped into strips you need to cut each strip into thirds. You can do several strips at a time.

Then start tying them using only one knot if you tie a double know the strips will be very short. You will use all the pieces of fabric from your 4 fat fabric quarters. I just grabbed whatever pieces and tied them on so.

This is so simple the kiddos can even help you make it. I know my girls LOVE helping me rip the strips.

Just keep tying and tying till you fill the whole ring up.

When you have all your pieces tied on you can add something to hang it with. I added a cute piece of thick braided rope I had on hand.

I just LOVE the way this turned out! So gorgeous!
