How to Make a Wreath in only 10 minutes!
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 that is festive and budget friendly. You don’t even have to be super crafty, because as mentioned this wreath will only take you about ten minutes to whip up. Check it out!
Here is what you will need:
- Foam wreath form
- 1 yard of scrap fabric (more or less depending on the size of your form)
- Craft or hot glue
- Assorted trimmings. We used a few packages of butterflies from our local dollar store.
How to make a wreath:
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.
2. Place some glue on the end of your first strip and press it to the wreath form. Hold it in place until it is secure. You may now start wrapping the strips around the wreath.
3. When your strip runs out, simply secure it to the wreath with glue and start a second strip, just as you did with the first one.
4. Continue this process until the entire wreath is covered with the fabric scraps.
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, or really anything lightweight and seasonal.
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.
Your scrap fabric wreath is now ready to be hung. It is perfect for a front door, mantel, or even in your office. Give one a try and see how fun, frugal, and FAST is can be to get crafty.
