Valentine Rag Wreath

1 Material
Easy

Wanted a craft to do with my 8 yr old granddaughter, and finding a 3 tier wire heart form at Dollar Tree, we decided on a cute wreath!
I bought 3 yds each of the 2 different Valentine print material at a thrift store for $2.00 each....bargin right?!! I tore strips that were 1-1/2 inches wide, then cutting them 6 inches long. After having a big pile of the strips, i folded the strop on half and pulled the raw ends through the loop, pulling tightly. I did a few and my granddaughter caught on and took over for me. Now we will make a wire heart from a coat hanger and my sweetheart assistant Emmie, will make one by herself!
This is the back of the wreath, you can see the 3 tiers.

Suggested materials:

  • Wire wreath form and Valentine print material.

    Hi I have a question about the fabric wreath you made ? why do you half the fabric on the wire with the back side out. and are all of your strips 6" for the whole wreath?

      Ok but I thought your directions said to put the fabric on back side facing out. Thanks
