First, I bleached and laundered the drop cloth to soften it.
Then I tore long strips of fabric and cut them into smaller pieces.
A lot of smaller strips.
Then I began to tie each piece around the wire wreath form.
and tie some more.....
...until the entire form was covered in drop cloth strips.
The edges have a nice frayed look,
and yes they do shed some if you shake the wreath.
I was so excited about my new idea
until I searched Pinterest and realized I'm a little late on the rag wreath idea.
Oh well, they're a new idea to me and I really like how this wreath turned out.
I liked it so much that I decided to make a larger one with turquoise fabric.
They both have a shabby look to them.
I think they would look so pretty hanging over a mirror by a pretty ribbon.
What do you think?
Here they are paired together.
These two went straight into my Etsy shop.
I hope you have a beautiful day!
'til next time,
