Red, White & Blue Rag Wreath

I LOVE making rag wreaths.  They are super cheap to make and a great way to use up extra fabric.  I made this little cutie with a wire hanger, and red, white and blue fabric.  I also used red, white and blue, plus some star ribbon to hang it up.  I thought this would be a perfect wreath to place on our front door to celebrate Memorial Day, as well as the Fourth of July.

*One day, I'm going to master bow making....I swear!

Either that or I'm buying one of those bow making machine things they sell at Walmart, LOL!

It is so super easy to make a rag wreath. The hardest part is bending the wire hanger, if you choose to use one. I have also made them using other wreath forms.

Just cut strips of fabric into however long you need (for the wire hanger, I think I cut mine to about 5 inches or so, more or less, about an inch wide. Then tie the fabric strips in knots around the wreath or hanger.

Super easy!

You can use a solid color, or several colors or coordinating patterns of fabric...the possiblities are endless.
