Yesterday, my sister and I made 4th of July wreaths based on an idea she saw in a magazine at the gym. We picked out some fabrics at JoAnns in cute patriotic prints, got a 12 inch foam wreath, and started cutting and tying. This wreath couldn't be easier, and it was fun to make too.
- 5 different fabrics, 1/4 yard each
- 12 inch foam wreath
- Fold each piece of fabric into thirds (width-wise), and cut so you have three pieces of fabric (each about 12 inches wide). Next, fold fabric in half length-wise and cut. Fold these pieces in half again length-wise and cut. You will end up with 12 strips of each color.
- Knot each fabric strip once, with the knot facing the front of the wreath. Next, pinch the remaining ends of the fabric so only the printed side shows and double knot the fabric, again making sure the knot is in the front of the wreath.
- Continue double knotting the fabric, varying the placement of the knots. I tied mine in the order the fabrics are laid out.
- Continue tying until the entire wreath is covered. If desired, use a remaining piece of fabric to sew a loop to hold the wreath.
