It is a talent to be able to coordinate fabrics for a project. A true undervalued talent.
You walk into the fabric section of your favorite craft store and there are so many options! You don’t have the time to walk around, and pull dozens of bolts trying to find the perfect combination.
Enter, pre-cut quilt bundle kits….
Now, not only are these bundles already cut (no need to wait for the attendant to cut the fabric) and matched up (no need to visit and re-visit each aisle) but they are considered one item on which you can usually use a coupon!
What?! I know. It’s incredible.
And that is what makes this fall fabric scrap wreath so easy. Go to the craft store, look for the bundle you like the most, swing by the floral aisle, pick up a wreath frame, and you’re ready to make.
– About five coordinating fabrics (five 10″ x 20″ inch pieces are enough for a small wreath)
– A wire wreath frame
– Rotary ruler, cutter and cutting mat
Start by flattening out the fabric in preparation for cutting the strips. I used a rotary ruler and cutter, but you can certainly use scissors. Each strip was about 1″ wide and 6″ long. The fact that the fabric strips are different lengths adds to the appeal of the wreath, so no need to be exact. Make about 30 or so strips. I’d say this is the minimum, you can make many more and make a fuller wreath if you’d like.
Once you have all the fabric strips cut, you can start tying them to the wreath frame.
I found it easier to being from the inside and work my way out.
Make sure you use the same knotting method for each fabric strip.
Repeat until the wreath frame is full. Cut more fabric strips if needed.
And that’s it! A quick and easy way to add some diy fall decor to your house!
