Raggy Christmas Wreath

I have been wanting to make a raggy Christmas wreath for years, but just never got there- until today. i decided it had to be today. i have been searching for the right 'blank' canvas to decorate, but it took me until this morning to find one. it wasn't exactly what i had in mind, but i thought it would be perfect for a practice go anyway.

out came my stash of fabrics, but i only used white (vintage sheet), linen (ikea curtain) and a doily (op shop) i cut it up into strips and started tying.

then to hang, i used a strip of linen and tied a white bow to the top. pretty cute. at $2 a wreath from the discount shop down the road, my girls and i will be making some more for sure.

as you can see, it was quite sad looking before! i would love to do one in beachy blues and another in the traditional Christmas colours i think. that's it for today as we have visitors coming for diner tonight. when i get my hands on some blackboard paint, i'll reveal my next project....
