i ran across this tutorial for a rag wreath. i love making wreaths and am always looking for ways to add some
true blue to our home during football and basketball seasons. J uk
in the tutorial, she used 5 kinds of fabric—1 yard of each. i wanted ours to be blue and white, so i used three fabrics (one being white ribbon). i did 2 yards of blue, 2 yards of white, and quite a few rolls of ribbon. i got the letters from michael’s. they were already painted white, and i just outlined them with a royal blue paint pen.
to make the wreath you need a wire wreath frame. you can find those anywhere—wal-mart, michael’s, target. 5 yards of fabric, whether it’s 1 kind or 10 kinds, and if you want to add anything in the middle, you can do that, too!
cut your fabric into strips that are 10” long and 1 1/2” wide. tie the fabric in knots on the first and third rings of the wire frame. make sure you fit as many on there as you can to make it really full!
that’s all it takes! to add the letters, i screwed screws into the backs of the letters (not so far that they poked thru), and then i wrapped wire around the screws and tied the other end to the frame. since the wreath is so full, it hides the wire perfectly.
what do you think? easy way to root on your favorite team for football season! hope this little number inspires you to dress up your front door!
