Easy Rag Wreath

Here's an easy rag wreath project I learned how to do here. BigBoy helped and BabyCakes was there too. It took a little while to tie all the scraps and play with the kids at the same time, but it was a sweet little project for us this morning. You can make your wreath fuller or a little "neater." It just depends on the length of your strips. I wanted a fuller one, myself.

I was wanting a wreath for the front door but didn't want to buy one. I found the small wreath hanger at a yardsale Saturday for a quarter, and I bought the wicker ring the scraps are tied to at the dollar tree. Some of the fabric I had on hand a from precious projects and some I found for dirrrrrt cheap at that same yard sale last weekend.

I think I like it.

For now, anyway. :)
