Hi Everyone! I’m really excited to take part in Hometalk’s DIY My Spring Blog Hop. Today, I’m sharing my Easter Egg Fabric Rag Wreath tutorial.
I’ve been slowly decorating for Easter and realized that I didn’t have a cute wreath for my front door. For this craft, I challenged myself to use items in my existing craft supply and spend zero dollars. Thus, this super easy Easter Egg Fabric Rag Wreath was the perfect way to use up scrap fabric and wire hangers from the dry cleaners.
Easter Egg Fabric Rag Wreath
- 1/4 yd each of 4 coordinating fabrics (I used white, orange, turquoise, and a yellow print)
- wire hanger
- cutting mat
- rotary cutter
- 2 1/2″wired burlap ribbon
- 3 plastic eggs
- glue gun/glue sticks
Shape the wire hanger by hand into an egg silhouette. Set aside.
Cut 25 – 1″ x 8″ strips of each fabric + 2 extra strips of one fabric. Cut 25 strips of 8″ twine.
This step is optional, but I l took all the white strips and pulled about 5 threads from each long edge to create a frayed look.
Attach fabric strips onto the wire frame. I did a pattern of white, orange, yellow, twine, and turquoise. Repeat this pattern until the entire frame is covered.
When the entire wreath is done, unravel each twine piece to give it a frayed look. Each twine piece should separate into three pieces.
Glue one of the extra fabric strips onto the hanger hook and wrap it around. Continue with the second strip until the entire hook is covered.
Drill a hole or use a hot tip in the center of each plastic egg (wide end). String twine through and knot the end. Leave enough twine to hang in the center of the Easter Egg Fabric Rag Wreath. Tie or glue the eggs onto the hanger hook. Make a bow with burlap ribbon and glue it onto the hook.
Now, the Easter Egg Fabric Rag Wreath is ready to hang on my front door and it was done for zero dollars!
TIP: If you want to make sure the fabric doesn’t droop over time, paint on liquid starch and let the wreath dry flat. When this is done, the starch will help keep the fabric and rope in the same position and prevent it from drooping.
