Easy and Inexpensive Rag Wreath

If you're looking for an easy project that costs almost nothing, then this is the one for you!  I'm using an old faced cotton curtain I saved and an inexpensive wire wreath frame.

Years ago I bought a curtain panel from Ikea.

It hung in my windows for a couple of years and I saved it for future projects

It was neutral, faded, and cotton, I knew it would be good for something! 

Rag wreaths are so easy to make and with reclaimed fabric, cost almost nothing! 

I cut 1" slits in one side of the curtain and ripped the strips all the way down the panel.

Next, I cut the strips into 4-5" pieces and tied them around the outside of the wreath frame. 

I bought my wreath frame at dollar tree but you can find similar on Amazon.

Then I tied them around the inside circle of the frame. 

I left the center frame without rags.

Lastly, I tied on 4 green rags so I could use the wreath for St. Patrick's Day.

You could use whatever color you'd like to accent your wreath.

That's it, I fluffed it up and hung the wreath on a DIY wreath hanger... stay tuned that tutorial is on its way!

I love making rag wreaths no matter where the fabric comes from, like this one with my husband's plaid pajama pants!
