{ diy halloween rag wreath tutorial }




I searched high and low this year for a Halloween-themed wreath this year.  I found lots of fall and plastic wreaths but not a simple, classic Halloween one.  So I made my own.

 
I started with these materials...
     -circle styrofoam wreath     -4 different kinds of halloween fabric
     -lots of straight pins            -3 yards of ribbon


Step One: Wrap wreath with ribbon.  My ribbon was trimmed with wire so it was easier to mold into position.  Secured it as needed with the straight pins.  I love straight pins.


Step Two: Cut my fabric into strips about an inch wide and 3 inches long.  Go ahead and sit down, it takes awhile.


Step Three: Twist and pin your pieces sporadically on the wreath.


I twisted in the middle and stuck the pin right through the middle.  Some pieces I had to use more than one pin or used a lid to push it through a thick piece.


After an hour of twisting and pinning it began to look like this.  I didn't follow any pattern.  If it looked like I needed more orange in spot or more white, I added it.


Make sure your go at least halfway around on either side of the wreath so you can see fabric from any angle.  I personally like the filled in look better.


And ta-da!  You have a lovely fabric wreath for your front door.  Or back door.  Whatever door you want.
