I’ve been seeing a lot of wreath tutorials floating around the internet and at this point many of them look a bit too advanced for my crafting skills. However, once I came across rag wreaths I thought they looked very cute and like something I could do with Kora & Logan. We gave one a try over the weekend and I was thrilled with how simple it was and how beautifully it came out. We had such a wonderful time together and are so pleased with this wreath that we can’t wait to make another!
First start with your supplies. You need a wreath form, fabric scraps, and scissors. I didn’t have fabric scraps so I went to the craft store and found packages of craft panels for an affordable price. I liked the package because all the colors were a nice mix and match. Fabric scraps would be fun too because they would be full of memories.
As we looked at it hanging on the wall we all agreed that while the spring colors blended nicely it didn’t have quite the looked we expected. All of the fabric we used had a plain white background. Some color did shine through but the white took away from the overall look. In the future I would make sure to use fabric that had a pattern on both sides.
We also felt that the strips were far too long for the size wreath we chose so we decided to give it a haircut.
Not only did we think the knotted side was pretty but the back turned out beautifully as well.
This simple spring rag wreath turned out to be so festive, fun, and pretty that I’m excited to make another. It was much easier than I thought it would be and offered a fun-filled family morning. I had a great time making this with Kora & Logan and hope you have fun making it as well.
What about you? What spring projects do you enjoy working on?
