Scrap Fabric Easter Wreath

Happy Monday!  A new week awaits.
I wonder what adventures will come our way…

How many of you have Easter on your mind?  It’s sure creeping up on us pretty fast.  I usually try to pull out a few decorations for Spring/Easter, but it’s not looking too promising this year.  However, I did make a super cute (bias opinion, I know) Scrap Fabric Easter Wreath.

Absolutely Darling Scrap Fabric Easter Wreath with livelaughrowe.comRemember my Vintage Inspired Scrap Fabric Garland?  It’s one of my all-time favorites!  I have one hanging above a doorway in my work room and it’s a popular item in my shop (when listed).  Well, after browsing through a Better Homes and Garden magazine recently, I saw a super cute scrap fabric garland idea and thought that the idea of gingham fabrics and twine would translate fantastically onto an Easter wreath too!

So, today I’m going to share the super uber easy idea with all of you.  Ready?

Supplies for Scrap Fabric Easter Wreath:

12″ Wire Wreath Frame
Gingham Fabric
Muslin
Scissors
Twine
Plastic Eggs, optional

I honestly did not know how much fabric I was going to need, so I bought 1/4 of a yard for each of the fabrics.  I stuck with gingham fabrics and muslin.  I did have extra fabric, but it will truly depend on how full you make your wreath — and the size of your strips.  I believe mine were 7″to 8″ in length and about 1/2″ in width.

You’re simply going to cut a gazillion (yes, a gazillion) strips of your fabric.  Some of you might cut a slit into the fabric and tear the strips off. However, others of you might just use scissors.  Whatever your preference might be — you’ll need lots of scrap fabric strips!

After they’re cut,  I would then roll them up in the palm of your hand like you’re making a snowball (hee-hee).  This gets them a little wrinkly and will get the sides all frayed up even more.

Creating your Scrap Fabric Easter Wreath with livelaughrowe.comThe muslin is a great way to break up the bright colors and gingham a bit.  I also added strands of frayed twine to my wreath.  I think it added a personal touch that fits my love for the imperfect, rustic designs that I seem to be drawn to these days.  Here’s a closer look:

I know, can you believe it?

Remember the garland I mentioned earlier?  Better Homes and Garden magazine suggested tying it around the handle of your Easter basket(s).  Ummm, that’s kinda brilliant!!  Here’s a couple of pictures to give you an idea.

    I don’t tend to do so much Easter as Spring since it’s just the hubs and I. Then if I do too much Easter it gets bare after the holiday. I
    love your wreath with/without the eggs, perfect and so pretty, colorful, the muslin with gingham and frayed twine hit the spot. Can leave that wreath up all summer.
    Think I’ll be hitting Walmart to get some gingham, love those colors you added. Think I’d better get myself a smaller wire wreath as one I have would take way too many strips.
    Great spring project. Happy Days

    Thanks for the idea! Now I can find red white blue fabrics to make a patriotic wreath in time for independence day.

    This is a great way to use up old fabric scraps to create a fun and fresh wreath! Great job! I’m new to your blog. Do you do a lot of sewing?

    So adorable and I like that it can be a spring wreath too. I love wreaths all year round. I saw one made of flip flops for the summer. Would love to live near the water. I do have a sign that says ‘head to the beach” so I am there in my mind!
