Days by the Sea wreath
Use up those fabric scraps with this quick and easy fabric wreath...
What you will need:
Craft Cotton Company supplies:
Days by the sea fabrics
Polystyrene wreath ring
Hot glue gun
Directions for fabric wreath:
Step 1: Using your rotary cutter and ruler, cut your patterned fabric into strips 1 ½” wide
Cut the strips into pieces approximately 4” long
Step 2: Put a small dot of glue onto the centre back of a fabric piece, pop onto the polystyrene ring then push down into the polystyrene using a crochet hook/pencil/pokey tool or similar.
Step 3: Continue to repeat this, positioning the fabric pieces quite close together to give a full, fluffy wreath effect. This can be entirely random, or if desired, fabric pattern placement can be used to create a specific design on your wreath.
Step 4: Continue with the remainder of the fabric pieces until all of the polystyrene is covered and you see no gaps when you brush across the fabrics with your hand.
Step 5: Add a ribbon hanging loop and finish off with a fancy bow for decoration
Your wreath is now complete!
