Hello!!! Thank you so much for stopping at Heart and Hearth Crafting today! I’m so happy you’re here!
If you’re interested in making your own handmade rag heart wreaths then you’re in the right place. Keep on reading and you will find everything you need to create this Valentines Wreath as well as all my best tips and tricks to make it fun and enjoyable.
Making Your Own Handmade Rag Heart Wreath
Making your own handmade Wreaths is a fun and relaxing (if addictive!!) hobby that will allow you to make truly personalised gifts for your family and friends. You don’t need any fancy equipment or materials to get started. Don’t get me wrong you’ll want ALL THE THINGS but you can start enjoying crafting without spending too much. I love impressing my neighbours with unique handmade seasonal Wreaths that really make my front door stand out.
Crafting Supplies You’ll Need
For this super simple craft project all you’ll need is a heart shaped wreath base and some red fabric. Any fabric will do.
You’ll also need some way to cut the fabric into strips. I’m using a rotary cutter and ruler. But you could also use dressmaking scissors or even just a normal pair of sharp scissors.
Step 1: Cutting the Fabric Strips
Cut your fabric into strips about an inch wide. I used about a metre of fabric for this wreath.
Step 2: Tying the Knots
You can tie a knot right? Then you can make this rag wreath. It’s that easy. You just tie the strips of fabric onto the wreath base.
Step 3: And Repeat
Keep going, adding more and more strips of fabric. You’ll need to bunch them up as you go.
Step 4: Keep Going!
Keep adding more and more strips until you can’t possibly fit anymore onto your wreath base.
And that’s all there is to it!
