Directions:

  • Cut your fabric into 1-2 inch wide by 7-8 inch long strips, about 150 strips total. 

  • Place strips in separate piles by styles. (Tip: If fabric can be torn you can tear faster one long strip and then cut into 7-8”long strips).’

  • Bend and shape the wire hanger into a circle. The hook makes a perfect wreath hanger.

  • Tie the fabric strips onto the hanger(changing the strip style on the next one).

  • Scrunch them together tightly as you go. You can single or double knot, it doesn’t really matter.

  • Put in a movie and tie, tie, tie!

  • Continue to tie and scrunch the fabric together until the wreath is as full as you like it. Fluff and twist the fabric so that it pokes out all over, the messier the better. 

  • You can add a bigger bow to the top where the hanger neck is if you like, tie on bells or add lights.   Post your wreath and comments to share  #festivefabricwreath
