Rag Wreath Tutorial

I haven't done a tutorial in a while so since I've been doing a few crafty things over the last week I thought I would share some of my methods. I've seen a lot of the rag wreaths and decided to try making one myself. I don't know how other people do this (probably a similar method) because I just did what I knew would work.

So here goes!
You will need a wire wreath (these come in all different sizes and shapes!), fabric (I chose 4 different fabrics and used 3/4 yard of each, and a pair of scissors.

First, you need to cut strips out of your fabric. My strips were about 6 inches by 1 inch. This does not have to be perfect at all. I just eyeballed it. Using my cutting mat would have been much easier and faster, but I love my pinking shears so I used those and did it by hand.
Once your strips are cut, double tie them on the wire wreath. And that's it! This took me a few hours in all because my wire wreath was large, but it was so simple and I love the way it turned out. I've seen people use tulle for these and they also look great! I love how mine looks. It gives my home a nice fall feeling!
