A very satisfying project completed last night and shown here on a hat hook as it was the lightest place in the house this morning (very dark and gloomy in Melbourne today) ...
Made using some fabric I originally bought earlier in the year for something else, but turned out to be perfectly suited to this application - two colours of taffeta and some sheer red. It was just a matter of poking small squares of fabric into the foam wreath with a screwdriver. The idea orginally came from here (via Google), where there is a tutorial if you want to have a go at it too.
I really love the texture of the fabric done this way, and the deep red and turquoise work well I think. I used about one metre of fabric all up for this project, although the back of the wreath is not covered so it would sit flat against the wall/door or where-ever in the house it ends up! This project is absolutely perfect for using up scraps and offcuts of fabric - hence the name - rag wreath!
Have a wonderful Monday!
