I have been wanting to make a chevron wreath for awhile, but of course...like anything else, I find myself procrastinating ALL.THE.TIME. This was a very easy project and can be done with any kind of fabric.
For this project you will need:
- wreath form (if you have a foam one, it will turn out more uniform,
but I only had this ugly twisted thing and using what I have is my kind of project)
- canvas (or burlap, or felt, or fabric, or ribbon)
- main feature fabric (you'll need one 3-4 inch wide strip of fabric.
I cut out along the width of my fabric)
- glue gun
As you can see in the picture above, there are legos all over the place in the background. It's just how I like pictures to be - with a very artsy background...ha! (right....it had nothing to do with the fact that I'd rather craft than clean up the toys all over my living room floor).
Step 1. So I basically just wrapped my canvas fabric around occasionally adding some hot glue to keep it in place. I don't have a picture of the next step, but I just took my chevron fabric strip and sowed it by hand, so I can gather it at the to make a long ruffle, enough to go around my wreath
Step 2. The last step was to hot glue my chevron ruffle to the canvas covered wreath form. And that's it.
Step 3 - I just hung it up by sliding the wreath holder in between the canvas and my ruffle, but you could probably finish the project properly and just hot glue some ribbon on the back making a loop to hang the wreath from.
Step 4 - is an actual step back to admire your new wreath.
The project took 20 minutes to complete, so put it on your crafting calendar and whip it up in no time.
