Fabric Wreath

1 honey bun {essence by sandy gervais is featured.}
12″ wire wreath frame {found at your local craft store}

yall will start by cutting your honey bun strips into 5 1/2″ long strips.

it’s at this point where you can choose to leave the selvages on or not.
{i left mine on this time.}
note: feel free to use scissors because it doesn’t have to be a real accurate 5 1/2″ strip. basically what i did was take the already folded honey bun strip,
fold it in half, then fold it in half again, and cut at the folds.
pick a color pattern that you like.
example: purple, red, cream, green, gold, aqua then cream again.
now here’s the fun part…
take your first strip, fold it in half lengthwise, and tie it onto your frame.

note: you are folding your strips in half for two reasons…
one: it’ll ensure that most of your fabric showing is the print side of the fabric.
two: it’s easier to tie your fabric onto the frame.
keep tying your strips on until you have covered your whole frame.
note: on my frame there were 4 wire circles, i just went around all four circles. feel free to make your wreath as full or as bare as you want, but i personally think that the fuller ones are the prettiest ones.
when all your strips are tied on, fluff your strips so that it gives your wreath a messy look.
and you’ve just made your very own fabric wreath!!!
ain’t it pretty???
you can hang it {or drape it} like i did here, or you can take another honey bun strip and tie it into a pretty hanging ribbon.
so go impress all of your friends with your awesome fabric wreath making skills.
and because these wreaths only take a few hours to make, you can whip them up for hostess gifts this holiday season. {they make great house warming gifts too.}
just don’t forget to treat yourself to one!!!
hope yall enjoy!!!

p.s. i quilt

    As a former professional floral designer, this has got to be the best replacement for the evergreen wreath at Christmas ever! No stinky piney hands, no blood involved, no pokey wires, sharp knives or stupid bows in sight. I'm in love! You are genius my dear…. Hmmm now which Christmas fabric to use???? Mary Englebreit maybe!

  25. SierraMoon says:

    I've always liked this great idea that was featured in the craft magazine Marie Claire idées 2 or 3 years ago and has traveled worldwide since.
    Yours is particularly beautiful
