Simple Fabric Wrapped Wreath Tutorial

Simple Fabric Wrapped Wreath Tutorial

Fall is here now with its cool, crisp air and beautiful colours. I’ve been puttering around the house, bring out our extra blankets and enjoying some yummy spice teas. I love cozying up our home for the cooler months. I was looking through my fabric stash last week for some fallish fabrics when I came across this piece of light brown wool.

It was a little scratchy for everyday use, but it had great shape and texture so I thought it would be perfect for a fall fabric wreath. The kids were already part way through their nap time so I wanted a simple, pretty way to put it together that wouldn’t involve a whole lot of time intensive cutting and pinning or gluing. So if you’re looking for a quick, cute project, this is for you.

Supplies:

  • Fabric (I used 2/3 of a yard of scrap wool from my fabric stash)
  • Wreath form (mine was 12″)
  • Fabric scissors
  • Glue gun and a couple glue sticks

Step 1. Cut a thin strip of fabric about 2 inches wide.

When you get to the end, secure the strip with a dab of hot glue. Now you won’t have to worry about any green peeking through between the fabric after your wreath is finished.

If you run out of fabric before the wreath is covered simply glue the end of the first strip to the back of the wreath and glue a new fabric strip on top and keep wrapping.
