How to Make a Rag Wreath

4th of July Rag wreath DIY

I love the farmhouse feel of a rag wreath. The rag wreath I am making is for the upcoming Memorial Day and 4th of July Holiday.

Materials Needed

  • Wreath Form, I usually buy mine at Dollar Tree.
  • Fabric. You can buy fabric or use something old. You’ll need approximately 2-3 yards. The more you use, the fuller it will be.
  • Scissors or Rotary Cutter.

Rag Wreath

Step One:

Cut your fabric into strips. Cut them about an inch wide and 9 inches long. They don’t have to be perfect. It is a “rag” wreath. Separate your strips so you can easily grab them as you are tying them to the wreath form.

Tie your fabric around the wires making a slip knot. To do this grab your material, fold it in half. Wrap it around the wire and tie it through, like this:

Start your knots from the center and work your way out. You don’t have to do it that way but I find it is easier.

Work your way around the wreath. Here is the blue:

Fluff your wreath until you get the desired look. I clip some ends sometimes and pull out the strands that shed from the fabric.

Ta-da you have a fabulous rag wreath.
