How to Make a Fabric Christmas Wreath Craft
Take your coat hanger and stretch and shape it into a circle. Don’t worry if it is not exactly perfect. As you put the cloth on you won’t be able to tell if this is not an exact circle.
Pick out the scraps of cloth you want. Decide on how many different colors you will be using.
Cut several 2 inch wide by 7 inches long strips of the cloth. The more strips you use the fuller your wreath will be. Use a ruler if you want to measure or you can just estimate. The exact width and length is not too important for this fabric Christmas wreath just so long as they are close. You can always trim off any excess if some are too long.
Now begin to tie each strip onto the coat hanger in the pattern you want. We did 5 strips per each color we used and alternated each color. Your pattern can be anything you want.
Keep adding strips and push together to fill in your wreath.
Once you are done, simply push down the top of the coat hanger behind the wreath. Use this to hang on the door or wall.
You can add some ribbon at the bottom of your fabric Christmas wreath but it is not necessary as these look so elegant without any adornments.
