Fabric Wreaths

I am on Spring Break this week so what better way to spend it than making a fabric wreath. There are a lot of different wreaths to make on Pinterest but my friend Porscha and I had one in particular that seemed pretty easy and inexpensive.  We took a little trip to Wal-Mart and were on our way to purchasing ribbon and fabric from the clearance section. Total price for my wreath $8.00. It was pretty easy and we watched a bunch of cooking shows and reality TV while making them.

Here is what you will need:

* 1 wire hanger (yes mommy dearest)
* fabric in your favorite colors
* ribbon in your favorite colors
* scissors
* Kourtney and Kim Take Miami

Once you get all of the pieces together cut the fabric and ribbon into 6 inch strips. Make the strips as thin or thick as you want but remember that you have to tie them around a hanger. The thicker they are the more space they will take up.

I laid all of my pieces out first.

Bend the hanger into a circle. It is ok if the circle is not perfect. You won't be able to tell once you put the fabric on. 

Once you have them in strips start tying them one by one in a single tight knot around the hanger. It is best to put the main colors in 3's or 4's and then add accent pieces.

I crossed my legs and put the hanger in between to stabilize it. 

Keep pushing the fabric over to make it tight. Once you finish you can add any extra pieces that you think you might need to fill in. 

Here are the finished products. You can add bows to the top of the hanger to fill it in or wrap ribbon around it tightly and secure with a knot.
