It Will Be Great In Any Color Theme!

Fabric strips wrapped around a foam base create a charming wreath. It’s so easy to make and will be great in colors for any season. Decorate your wreath with a bow or add flowers, holly leaves, and more. Get as creative as you want and have fun making your own special version.

We found several examples to get you started. You may want to look through all of them before you begin and determine which process will work best for you.

The wreath from Spotlight shown above has pretty yo-yo flowers accented with buttons. You’ll find the pattern at the link below.

Each of the wreaths is made a little differently.  Regardless of which process you choose, a 12″ foam wreath is a good size (although you can go larger or smaller) and 2″ wide strips work nicely. The fabric strips are secured to the back of the foam base with straight pins.

The sweet wreath shown above, by Jeni Baker from In Color Order, is finished with a pretty fabric bow. Instructions for the bow are included in her wreath tutorial linked to below.

You can wrap the strips around the foam base letting the raw edges show or fold and press the strips lengthwise and wrap them so the folded sides create neat edges.

Jaime Costiglio added pretty flowers to hers. They’re made from two layers of fabric fused together then cut into flower shapes. Learn more at the link below.

Start with long strips and add others as you go, creating a bit of a freeform design or plan placement of the strips to balance colors around the wreath.

Scrappy Wrapped Wreath Tutorial

The wreath shown above from Crafter’s Companion alternates strips cut to 5″ lengths. Fabric holly leaves and red pom pom berries are festive finishing touches. Learn how the wreath was made at the link below.

Not only are these wreaths easy, but they’re also quick and fun. You’ll have your own creation on display before you know it.

It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
