Rag Wreath

You will need

  • Scrap fabric
  • Sharp scissors
  • Wire frame
  • Ribbon


  1. Cut your fabric into strips – about 20cm long and 2-4cm width.
  2. Tie strips in a double knot around your wire frame. Note: If you don’t have a pre-made wire frame you could use an old wire coat hanger by bending it out into a circular shape and use the hook as the hanger.
  3. Keep going all the way around the outside until your shape is full up.
  4. Fasten a ribbon loop on the reverse, hang up and enjoy!


Other ideas and tips

You could use string, wool or ribbon. Coloured plastic bags cut up would be good for outdoors.
