Christmas Wreath Showcase

Christmas Wreath Showcase

We are well and truly in the thick of the Christmas season, and as usual we as a family will be working on some Christmas craft, as much to keep the kids entertained as to give our decorations a bit of a spruce up. Somewhere in the move last year, we lost a Christmas box that held the kids wreaths. Over time all the kids had made their rag wreath and we took turns each to use a different one.

When the DIY Decorator girls got in touch to suggest a Christmas Wreath Showcase, I knew exactly what I would make, a rag wreath of course, only with a twist to suit our new home. Here’s my step by step guide on how to make a rag wreath.

Christmas Wreath Showcase

Equipment

Scissors

Pliers may be handy

Materials

A wire coat hanger

1 meter of ribbon

1.5-2 meters of fabric of your choice

Step One

Make the wire coat hanger into a circle shape. It really doesn’t matter if it’s imperfect, in fact you won’t have a clue when you’re finished.

Step Two

Cut fabric into pieces anywhere from 7cm to 15cm. I used a mixture of short and long to give the wreath a fuller effect.

Step Three

Tie the fabric onto the coat hanger in simple knots.

Step Four

Once all fabric is tied onto the coat hanger, tie the ribbon in a loop to use as something to hang the wreath from.

Step Five

Hang and enjoy your wreath.

It really is as simple as that. But don’t just stop with my idea, take a look around the Christmas wreath showcase and see which other wreaths inspire you.

  11. Ah LOVE your wreath too Nicole. This was the technique I used once with white plastic bags in primary school, but the use of fabric is MUCH nicer (and more eco friendly). Also love the blue and white colour selection 🙂 Great job!

    1. Thank you Nik, and now that you mention it, I think I also recall making one with plastic bags when I was at school. Your wreath has given me the inspiration to try something similar for our Christmas table. xx

  12. So many clever ideas, love them all.
