How to Make a Wreath easily.

If you have ten minutes and a little scrap fabric, you have the makings of a fun and frugal home décor piece. Take a look below at how we used some scrap fabric and a few trimmings from the local dollar store to create a wreath.

It turned out so festive and budget friendly. You don’t even have to be super crafty. This is so easy and anyone can make this.

It seriously will only take you about ten minutes to whip up. This beautiful decor is so easy. You can get scrap fabric at the craft stores if you don’t have any.

Let’s get started with this super easy wreath tutorial.

Supplies needed for wreath: foam wreath form, fabric, ribbon, glue, scissors.

Supplies for an easy wreath

  • Foam wreath form. Other types of frames include a straw wreath or wire frame that you can use.
  • 1 yard of scrap fabric (more or less depending on the size of your form)
  • Craft or hot glue gun
  • Assorted trimmings. We used a few packages of butterflies from our local dollar store.

How to make a fabric wreath

Step 1

Begin by cutting or tearing your fabric into 2 inch thick strips. We tore ours for a more natural look, but the choice is up to you. If you prefer, you can cut the strips for cleaner lines.

Step 2

Place some glue on the end of your first strip and press it to the form. Hold it in place until it is secure.

You may now start wrapping the strips around the foam. This is the fun part and kids love to help. They can wrap the fabric all around and everyone gets to have a part in this craft.

Step 3

When your strip runs out, simply secure it to the foam with glue. Then start a second strip, just as you did with the first one. Just make sure the fabric strip is secure and you hold it down for a few seconds to let the glue dry.

Step 4

Continue this process of tying strips until the entire wreath is covered with the fabric scraps. You don’t want to see any of the foam. It should be entirely covered in fabric.

Step 5

Once it is covered, use your trimmings to add some detail. We placed a generous amount of glue on the back of our butterflies and pressed them to the wreath in a cluster. You can do the same using flowers, butterflies, a pine cone or really anything lightweight and seasonal.

You can use floral wire and wire cutters to attach these if you prefer.

Step 6

To hang your wreath, simply take an additional strip of fabric and run it through the wreath. Join the ends at the top and tie them into a bow. It is that simple to make gorgeous wreaths.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Fabric. This is so easy that you can make one for every season or occasion. Save scrap fabric from other projects. You can also buy small remnants inexpensively at craft stores.

    Another idea is to use old shirts or blankets to turn into strips for this project. Not only is this very budget friendly but it helps to repurpose something that would otherwise be tossed out.
  • Embellishments. Before you head to the dollar store or craft store, see what you have at home. Some ideas include: buttons, pine cones, flowers, twine and more. You might have leftovers in your craft bin that would be perfect for this project.
  • Wreath form. If you have pool noodles laying around, learn How to Make Pool Noodle form. You can use this as the base for this DIY.

    This will save you from going to the craft store to buy supplies. We love to repurpose things around the house for new projects.

It is so easy.
