Wreath made from a coat hanger and 2″ x 9″ fabric strips.

Start with a frame and tie thin fabric strips around it. Wire, a coat hanger or even a thin styrofoam wreath shape all work well for the frame. Cut fabric strips to the length you’ll need to knot around the frame with ends left over to bush out. Shorter strips will be bushier than longer ones.
For a coat hanger frame, strips that are 1 to 1.5″ wide by 5 to 6″ long work well. You may want to experiment a bit to determine the optimal width and length of strips for your frame. Don’t worry, this is a bit of a free-form project and you can’t really get it wrong.

When adding the fabric strips to any type of frame, be sure to push them as close together as possible.
