Halloween Fabric Rag Wreath

I made my first wreath and I think it turned out pretty cute. I'll include a brief tutorial but it is easy to make. Just a little time consuming.


You can use as many fabric choices as you want, I used 4 that I already had. I chose not to use the black minky fabric that is pictured. It makes a big mess when cutting it so I left it out.



Cut some fabric into about 1" strips. I didn't measure, just kind of eyeballed it. You can either run your scissors down the fabric or rip the strips. They do not need to be even and the frayed look is what we're going after. I then cut these strips in half.


I just used a clothes hanger that I bent into a somewhat circle. I had a wreath that I bought, but it was too thick and I would have needed to cut more fabric.


These are my strips all cut up ready to go onto the clothes hanger.


I then just double knotted each piece of fabric on then added a bow to the top.


Turned out pretty cute, didn't it?

  2. I'm ready for Fall also. It sure has been a hot Summer! Using a hanger works great and you have a hook to hang it on. :)

  20. This is too cute! I bought all the stuff to make an Auburn rag wreath but i bought one of those cheap wreath form thingys. When I got home I realized how small the form was and was planning to go buy a bigger one tomorrow (read: more expensive). Instead I will be saving that $6 and using a coat hanger! Thank you so much!

  26. I'm not sure how many I used, probably close to a yard. The strips were 7"-8" long and about 1" wide.
