Sorry it has been a while since I blogged! I've been out of town for the past 10 days... I had a family reunion, a funeral, and a wedding to attend. Luckily while I was visiting my family the girls all got together and had a craft night. We decided to make these cute patriotic rag wreaths! It was a lot of fun to get together and all bring different kinds of fabric to share.
Ever since I saw this St. Patrick's Day Wreath over at the Magic of Ordinary Things, I knew I had to make one! I decided on a patriotic wreath because I had lots of red, white & blue fabric left over from the rag quilt I made a while ago. I then shared the idea with my family and they all wanted to make one too.
It's pretty easy. Just bend a wire hanger into a circle and tie lots of strips of fabric around the hanger. The strips of fabric were 1 in. x 7 in. I then added a bow and ta da! Easy! I can't wait to hang it on my door as my first patriotic craft of the summer. I would recommend either doing it with friends or putting in a movie while you make it... you've gotta have something to entertain you while you tie all those knots!
