#8 Quick & Easy Wreath


I made this wreath a couple of weeks ago. It’s really quick and easy to make. Using some old tulle-like fabric and an old wire hanger, I simply cut (half hazardly) 1-2 inch strips of fabric- about 10 inches long. Lots of them. I shaped the hanger into a circle leaving the hook on top for hanging. Then I tied all the strips around until it looked nice and fluffy. Added some glittery apples and a ribbon and there you have it. Really easy to do- even my little guy helped out.

You could use any kind of fabric to make this. Even lace, or ribbon would work. To make this wreath more of a recycling project, you could use any kind of plastic-ky material from grocery bags to cereal box bags.

    I haven’t seen one of these wreaths in years. When I was in high school, many more moons ago than I want to think about, I made these from dry cleaner bags. Love your recycling ideas. I like the old Appalachian saying: Make It, Make Do, or Do Without! Personally, I prefer the make it option.

    What type of knot did you tie? Some tutorials specify a certain type of knot but the result wasn’t as fluffy as I like. I like how your wreath turned out very fluffy.

    my new daughter in law had tulle and white roses on the pews. asked me to hold onto them but admitted they will probably end up packed away. I wanted to make something out of them they could use. this seems perfect
