A Square Rag Wreath

The basic directions for this wreath are no different than the red and pink wreaths I posted today. The only difference is the color and shape. Again, I used leftover fabric from other projects, mixing and matching shades of green until I found the way I wanted it to look. The only other thing needed was the metal form.
I used strips I tore approximately 5-6 inches long. For this one, I tore multiple strips and put them in separate piles to make it easier as I moved through the project. Again, it was a basic loop, pulled up behind the wire, and then the tails pulled through the loop. I have one flipped here, so you can see what it looks like from the other side.
This frame was 25 cents on clearance at Walmart! Of course I bought the four they had! Nothing else was purchased for this wreath.
I just kept adding strips, filling it in, mixing and matching as I went.
You can add as many different shades and patterns as you want. Just keep filling it in.
Here is one way to display it. You could add a picture, use it as a picture frame, or anything your imagination suggests.
This is the way I have it hanging up in my kitchen. I just like the shape and colors and can always add more to it if I want.
Suggested materials:
  • Leftover fabric 2-3 yards in strips   (had)
  • Square metal wreath form   (Walmart)

    I really like the "square" wreath and your use of diferent textures of fabric really worked well. Thanks for the inspiration.
