You will need
1 yard fabric (I bought the least expensive white cotton, I could find. I think it was 1.99$/yrd.)
1 Styrofoam ring (I got mine at Joann. Regular price was 4.99$, but I was able to use a 40% off coupon.)
Thread, needle (Sewing machine optional, but will get the job done quicker)
Hot glue gun
fabric scraps for flower (optional)
Let's get started.
Cut your fabric into 4 inch wide strips and then each strip into three equal pieces. My fabric width was 45 inches, so each of my strips was 4 inches x 15 inches. If your fabric is less than 45 inches, don't worry, just adjust the length of each individual strip. Your ruffles will just be a tiny bit less full on the wreath. You will need a total of 24 of these strips.
Next, fold each ruffle piece lengthwise and give it a quick press with your steam iron. Having the crease will make gluing them onto the ring easier and will also look better.
quilt binding which was just waiting to be used for this purpose. If you are looking for a tutorial to make a rosette flower, there is an easy to follow one right here. You don't need special fabric glue. I just used my hot glue gun and it worked just as fine.
Go ahead, make one, too. Be creative with the colors and embellishements. How about pink for Valentine's Day, or pastels for Easter. Then there is bound to be a next Christmas, so how about green with red flowers or one in fall colors?!
If you make one, please let me know and link back to this post.
