In this post: Make your own rag wreath for fall (or any season) using an embroidery hoop and a few scraps of fabric! Just swap out the fabric colors or patterns to create a new look for each season, occasion or holiday!
So, this definitely isn’t the fanciest wreath ever. Nor is it the most complicated project I’ve ever done. But as I’ve said many times before, the simplest projects are often the best! Plus, this simple DIY rag wreath can be made from scraps and bits you likely already have lying around in your craft stash!
How to Make a Simple Rag Wreath from Scraps
The tutorial couldn’t be any simpler. Seriously. Like 1, 2, 3. If you can use scissors safely and tie a knot, you’re good to go. Plus, it gets bonus points for being cheap. Especially if you have scrap fabric and an embroidery hoop already!
1. Cut or tear many, many strips of fabric to about 1/2″ x 4″. Like a lot of strips. More than you think you’ll need. Like a thousand times more. ‘Cause you’ll need them all. Maybe watch TV or listen to a podcast or something while you do this to avoid complete, mind-numbing boredom. I promise, it will be worth it.
2. Tie strips of fabric one at a time in a single knot around embroidery hoop. You can use either both parts or just one of the hoops to make the wreath, either is fine.
3. Repeat – and repeat and repeat – until wreath is nice and full. Probably watch TV or something for this part too. It takes a little while.
Clean up all the strings, hang and enjoy!
Note: You can use any size embroidery hoop, just adjust your fabric strip length and quantity to ensure wreath-full-ness. (Wreath-full-ness is totally a thing.)
Then you can hang your wreath on a door, a cabinet, a door knob or even just prop it up somewhere. A chair probably isn’t the best place for it though. Someone may sit on it and get splinters in their bum.
Such a simple little wreath that’s perfect for fall, winter, summer or spring. Pretty much any time of year.
