The perfect part of this project - I just raided my remnant stash to complete it - the only thing I had to buy, was the wreath form. Even the glue was from past projects - I broke into Bug's last year schools supplies to find 3 containers of white glue that were almost empty.
Here are the supplies:
- Fabric scraps
- Styrofoam wreath form
- White glue
Step 1 - Grab all your scraps of fabric and cut them into strips that are roughly 1 inch wide by 4-5" long. This is a bit different than what I did with the first, I used squares with the first
Step 2 - Take the fabric and fold it over the end of a stick or pencil. Then dip it into the glue and poke it into the wreath form.
Then repeat over and over and over again...
Just keep jamming those scraps into the wreath.
Once you have the front of the wreath covered you can move to the sides.
And then you've got a finished wreath.
Really - this is very easy, and while there is fabric involved, there is no sewing. So it is a really simple way to bring the texture of fabric into your home without having to learn to sew or drag your sewing machine out if you already know.
I might add some orange strips of fabric to make it a little more fall-ish, without using the glue so that I can pluck them out when we move onto winter.
