  • One 10″-12″ Styrofoam wreath
  • 3/4 yard patterned fabric
  • 1/2 yard contrasting fabric
  • Hot glue
  • One piece of colored floral wire


Cut a wide strip of fabric to cover the wreath. Wrap as shown in the photo and affix with a dab of hot glue all along the way as you wrap.

I used a ruler to create the template for my rag pieces. Each pieces is 12″ long and the width of the ruler. Mark them off using the pencil and ruler as shown and cut.

Tie each strip around the wreath using a double knot. Notice in the photo that I overlapped each piece to get them very close together. That was my preference, you could use less fabric and not have the rags as close if you desire.

I also used a solid red as my contrasting fabric which I placed in every 8th spot. I fell in love with that pretty pink and red plaid!

Using wire cutters, cut a piece of floral wire and shape into a heart. Insert a piece of floral wire into the wreath and wrap around the heart to hold it in place.

I used a piece of the red fabric for hanging the wreath.

It took longer to cut the rag strips than anything. You could make this in just a couple of hours.


  • Plaid fabric was $4.79 for 1 yard (on sale at Hancock Fabrics)
  • Red fabric was scrap from another unfinished project
  • Floral wire was $1 at Dollar Tree
  • Wreath was $1 at Dollar Tree

  1. I’m not the craftiest of people, but even I can do this and I’m going to look into it. It’s great because it can be adapted to whatever holiday you need or want a wreath for. Thanks for sharing your post at the Over the Moon Link Party.

  2. This wreath you made is so nice Shirley! You did a great job with the tutorial too.
