Hey guys! Can’t believe we are almost through January, I am getting really excited for Valentines Day! Here is another project that is super easy, not as quick as some in the past, but can easily be done while watching evening t.v.
Fabric-2.5 yards worked for me with left overs
Wire Wreath Form-18inches
Start off by cutting your fabric into one inch strips. You can go the length of your yard.
Then cut your strips into 8inch lengths, so you will have pieces of 1×8. Make A LOT of these in all of your fabrics. Make them into piles so you can create a pattern.
I really liked my wreath form because it has two different “levels”. Start out with making a knot around the top “level”
Slide it all the way to the end, there are little metal markers that help with this. Second do a knot on the bottom “level”.
Again, slide it down. Next do a knot on the middle “level”. It is the bottom wire of the top “level” and the top wire of the bottom “level”. Gosh I hope that makes sense!
Slide them all the way down to the wire marker. Start again-Top, bottom, middle-repeat. I kept an order of my fabrics, I just went in a row of my piles, so that it had a pattern.
It can be time consuming, it took me about 30 minutes just to cut the fabric, but I was also winging it and guessing sizes so it took a bit longer. About another 30 minutes to get half way around, and having to cut more fabric.
As you keep going, there is a definite pattern of top bottom middle, this is what the back will look like.
Just keep going, don’t give up, it is no where as tedious as doing a yarn wrap wreath! All together it took me about a hour and a half to finish.
Add in your decoration. The wire form has some little hooks built in. They are more meant to hold the wires together but they are perfect to hang things from.
You are done!
I plan on making these for each holiday. They are such a great way to spice up the front door!
