How To Tuesday: Hand Tied Wreath

Materials:

  • Metal hanger
  • Stiff cloth (in any color; feel free to mix and match!)
  • Scissors
  • Hairspray

Step 1: Pull and bend the metal hanger into a rough circle.  You may need to unhook the hook part of the hanger to incorporate it into the circle.  Feel free to keep the hook for ease of hanging the wreath.

Step 2:  Cut your fabric into strips.  My strips were roughly 1″ to 1 1/2″ wide and 5″-7″ long.  Your strips do not have to be exact; as a matter of fact, the rougher the strips, the more unique the wreath!

Step 3:  Tie the fabric strips onto the hanger.  Be sure to tie them tightly and push them close together.  The closer the knots are on the hanger loop, the fuller your wreath will appear.

Step 4:  When all your strips are tied on the wreath, or when your loop is tight and full, lightly spray your wreath with hairspray to avoid frazzled ends.

Voila!
