In this month’s column, Liselle, from Liselle Fae Art, for Flowers N Things in Red Lion Street, explains how to make easy and delightful fabric rag wreaths that require no sewing at all!
You will need:
A double ring-shaped base. (We used steel wire shaped and bound into two rings, but you can use a pre-made florist wreath base or even an old wire coat hanger.)
How to make:
Cut your chosen fabric into strips about seven inches long and one inch wide. (For an added bonus you could use pinking shears on the edges.)
Next, working clockwise, knot the strips round the wire.
Tie tightly, and try to keep the ends as even as you can.
As you tie the knots, push them against the last one you tied until you’ve filled the wire.
You can hang the wreath by tying a piece of string round it if you desire to.
The wreaths make great gifts and can be made with a certain style or pattern by cutting or ordering the fabrics.
○ If you are keen on making one with us we are at the Pearl & Ruby flower shop on July 13 from 10am-12pm, £10 with supplies included.
