Hello craft lovelies! I’m Claire otherwise known as Claireabellemakes. Like Kate, I’m a multi crafter and love to indulge in crochet, knitting, sewing, paper and glue gun crafts. Today I am sharing an easy tutorial to make this DIY No Sew Fabric Wreath for Christmas.
All the supplies to make the wreath can be found in The Homemakery store. So let’s get started…
You will need:
Estimated time: 30-40 minutes
Begin by cutting your fabric into 2 inch wide strips.
You can use a selection of complimentary fabrics or just one pattern, it’s up to you!
Next, fold in and iron the long sides of the fabric strips to conceal the raw edges.
On the flat side of the polystyrene wreath, pin the end of the first fabric strip. Be sure to push the pins diagonally into the wreath to ensure they do not stick out the other side.
Carefully wrap the fabric strip around the wreath, smoothing it flat as you go. Ensure the folded edges are tucked in.
Pin the other end of the fabric strip to the back of the wreath.
Continue with the fabric strips, pinning and wrapping each one around the wreath. The back of the wreath will not be seen, so do not worry about gaps here.
Remember to look at your wreath from a distance as you go along, so you can see the wrapping is even!
Continue around the wreath with all fabric strips.
Once the entire wreath is covered in fabric, cut a length of ribbon from which to hang it. Wrap the ribbon around the wreath once and pin into place. Fold a long end back down to create a large loop and pin once again.
Add some decorations to your wreath and hang! You could add real holly or mistletoe to give it a more festive feel.
