Featured Project: Rag Wreaths


  • Wire Hanger (*Or pre-made wreath form)
  • Scrap Fabric (Choose a few different patterns/colors that will go well together)
  • Pinking Shears (Regular scissors can be substitute, but the fabric may fray more) 
  • Pliers
  • Wire Cutters (Optional)
  • Ruler


  • Cut strips of fabric that measure 6” x 1” 
  • Unfold your wire hanger and shape into a circle
  • Attach the ends of the wire form and secure using the pliers
  • Begin tying on the strips of fabric 
  • Continue until the entire wire form is covered
  • Adjust the strips and fluff to the desired appearance
  • Cut an additional larger strip of fabric for the hanger – cut the size you prefer
