What you need:
- Wire coat hanger or wire
- Fabric scraps
- Something you would like to hang in the middle
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun would be handy, but not essential
2) Take a sheet of newspaper (doubled) and roll it up into an inch wide tube, and wrap this around your wire to give it some fullness. Secure the ends with some tape. You will need to do this a few times, of course it depends upon how full you'd like your wreath to be. I used about four peices of newspaper in total.
4) Rip your fabric scraps into rectangles. You can, of course, cut them but I personally like the ripped effect. The size of the rectangle depends on a few factors. The first being the fullness of your wreath and also how long you would like the fabric to stick out. My fabric peices where around 4cm wide and 20cm long. It may take you a few hit and misses
5) Begin adding your fabric pieces to your wreath. You simply wrap the fabric from back to front and tie it in a knot. Now, have a think about where you would like your ribbon (hanger) to be, and whether you would like this to be on top of the fabric scraps or underneath. If it is underneath leave a gap for it and we will add the hanger next.
6) To add the ribbon hanger. Take a piece of ribbon and knot it at the end. You can either tie the hanger on or, if you have one, use a hot glue gun. At this point in time you may also like to add something to hang in the middle of the wreath. I found some table decorations of silver sparkle hearts mounted on stands at the reject shop for $2, so I removed the stand, hot glued on some ribbon and secured this to the same point as the ribbon hanger. Below is the view from the back of the wreath after adding the heart and hanger.
7) Now all there is to do is finish off adding the fabric scrap and hanging it up somewhere to be admired by as many people as possible!
