To wind up this series of Christmas Every Monday, let's make this delightful fabric wreath.
Start with this thin wooden wreath frame. I got mine at Michaels. It's called a Craft and Floral Base.
Gather up all of your Christmas color fabric scraps and start cutting them. I made mine 1" x 5". I used a bunch of varied prints. I made approximately 80 strips and did not use quite all of them. I didn't want to have to stop in the middle and tie more.
Tie a knot in the center of each piece. This is a good thing to do while you are watching TV and goes pretty fast once you get going with a rhythm.
I tied a piece of baker's twine in two of the holes already in the base and knotted it so I would have a hanger.
Hot glue the knots only!!
Put them as close as you can get. Vary your patterns as you go using as much variation in the red, green and white patterns as you can.
I had also made this in fall colors. You could make them for any occasion by varying the fabrics.
Hope you have enjoyed the easy projects and have started on your Christmas gifts.
