I like to think of myself as a pretty creative person, but give me fabric and I’m lost… paralyzed with fear, really. Somehow cutting fabric just seems so… permanent. I don’t know, but I’ve been seeing so many adorable projects on Pinterest (yes, I am addicted, no I do not need help) that I decided it was time to break out of the box and get over my fear of crafting with fabric.
Bolstered by my confidence in the way that my Magnet Board turned out, and inspired by Sassy Sanctuary, I decided to try my hand at making a rag wreath for Halloween.
At Walmart, I picked up a foam wreath circle, and a half dozen Halloween themed bandanas. I cut the bandanas into strips and tied them into knots, alternating the fabrics as I went.
It sounds simple, and it was, although it did take the better part of two hours.
To hang the wreath, I tied one last piece loosely with the ties at the top. It’s simple, and not quite as blinged out as it’s Sassy Sanctuary counterpart, but for my first time attempting something like that, I’m pretty pleased with the outcome.
