Rag Wreath

This is a rag wreath and is so simple to make! Take a hanger, leave the hook on, and shape the hanger into a circle. Cut your material into 1x6 inch strips. Simply tie the strips onto the hanger sliding them tightly together as you go.

When you cannot squeeze any more fabric strips onto the hanger you are almost done! Fluff the strips to make the wreath full. For the hook, take a half inch strip of fabric, about 16 inches long and tie one end to the hook and wind the rest around the hook to cover it and fabric glue the end to stay put. Top off with ribbons or any other embellishment you wish and voila!

You can also do the same to make a swag, just use a leather strip or if you want it more sturdy, straighten out the hanger and attach another straightened hanger to it!

***SAVINGS ALERT***

My daughter decided she wanted to make one of these for her friend for her birthday. I went to JoAnne's and looked in the fabric remnant section first. I found one girly printed fleece and three tie-in fleece colors.

Fleece is 50% off this week. It applied to the remnants too!!! So I got the four for $3.60. So make sure to check the remnant section first for marked down fleece fabric this week and get it for 1/2 off.

I did not know the discount applied to these. I was pleasantly surprised.

Thank you again so much for this idea. My 10 year old is loving making this for her friend for her room as a birthday present. I am sure the fabric I bought will stretch to make 2 of these. I have included a photo of her 1/2 completed wreath she wanted me to share! (She is so proud.)

Oh wow, love the colors and tell her I am so proud of her too! Just be sure she pushes the strips tightly together so it will come out fluffy!

With the remnant pieces I bought she has made three and I think she has just enough for a fourth. She is a machine. She loves this. Thank you so much! She is in a small Girl Scout Troop and she is making one for all the girls. You can't beat the price! Also, it really satisfies her 10 year old girl need for something to do.

It's beautiful and so easy. I cut the strips with a point at one end. I also thought of buying some cloth rope and doing same thing for a garland.

Thank you for sharing your inspiration.

As many as it takes, honestly! Until the wreath is as full as you want it to be.

I taught my 9 year old son how to do this and he made both of his Grandmother's wreaths for Christmas presents, and then one the next year for his teacher. But we used one hoop of a set of embroidery hoops instead of a hanger. And since, I have been always on the lookout for other circular things that can be used for wreath forms. Even old bangle bracelets can be used for mini wreaths that can be ornaments hung on the tree.

Very easy for anyone to make, and use scraps of old material. Wonderful gifts!

Forgot to add that the red gingham fabric we used for 3 wreaths was bought at a thrift store for 25 cents. And we have recycled other clothing items- shirts skirts, even old sheets or pillow cases that maybe a hole in them, etc. for very cheap or free material to use.
