Fabulous Shabby Rag Wreath and Pink Tea Party!

Hello Darling Friends!
With the holidays around the corner this is a fun inexpensive way to
fluff up your Shabby Cottage decor with a cute wreath!

The burlap is so hot right now and I think it just makes this wreath!

This is sooo easy and fun!
I used some old stained pillowcases and valances that I tea stained.
Wire Hanger
Old fabric or ribbon
Glue Gun
Emebellishments (I used a lace and burlap rosette)
Step 1~ Bend your wire hanger into a circle
Step 2~Cut alot of (150 or so) 6 inch strips of fabric

Step 3~ Tie fabric on fluff it, push it close to each piece to make it full.
Step 4~Bend hanger loop over to make a small circle at top and add rags.
Then using your lace make a pretty fluffy rosette and hot glue to the top.
I added a smaller burlap rosette to the top of center lace piece.

Hope you love this cheap and easy tutorial!

  8. Beautiful! I really love the tea stained looks so elegant and vintage! What a fun and lovely, economical craft project! Funny, I was just thinking today about how little crafting I've done lately and I decided it was because it's too nice out to sit inside and craft...and here you are crafting to get out of the heat! It's always fun to see what you're up to!
    Best Wishes and Blessings,
