This wreath is an easy project that you can finish in a couple of hours. I used some leftover material from my drop cloth curtains, but you can use any fabric that can easily be tied in a knot. Make this wreath fit your personal style and decor.
Note: Check out my project list for the DIY Drop Cloth Curtain tutorial.
Cut your fabric into strips. I cut my fabric in a 1 inch width and then I vary the lengths. From 6-8 inches.
I start with the longest length strips on the first 2 outer wires (8"). You simply tie the strip onto the wire with one simple knot.
I tie enough strips onto the outer most wire first making sure they are snug to each other. You will be able to tell if you like the fullness right away and you can add more if you like.
Once the first row is done, fold it over so you can easily access the next wire. I also like to work in sections. You also could do the outer wire all the way around and then move in on the next wire. There's no right or wrong way as long as you tie them securely on the wire form and like how it looks.
A closer look at how I tie the strips onto the wire form.
This is what a finished section will look like.
Once all the sections are done you will have a beautiful and unique wreath.
I tied a loop of jute from one of the wires for hanging.
TIP: Keep the loop lower than the wreath if you don't want to see it.
If you want a decorative hanger, use a beautiful ribbon that you want to see. A seasonal color or patterned ribbon would be a great way to make this wreath work all year long in your decor.
I personally love the simple style this wreath adds to an old window frame.
I hope you'll give this easy DIY a try!
