Valentine’s Heart Fabric Rag Wreath Tutorial
Rag Wreath Supplies
All you need to make these cute wreaths are:
- A pile of scraps cut roughly 1.5 inches wide and 8 inches long.
- A Heart Wire Wreath Form
- And maybe a great movie to watch because all you have left to do is tie! tie! tie!
Heart Rag Wreath Directions
;Grab one scrap at a time and tie a double knot around 2 rungs of your wire frame…making sure to place the knot in the front.
Alternate your knots back and forth between the three rungs of your frame.
Remember to slide your fabric knots close together as you continue to tie your way around the frame.
And that is it. Tie, alternate, slide.
It’s easy…it’s relaxing…and it’s great to work on during your favorite movie.
When you are finished it will look something like this from the back:
And something like this from the front:
And your scrap bin will thank you for it!
