If you are one of the many people who likes to get their Christmas decorations up early, and according to Metro, some people regard the beginning of Advent as the appropriate time, a fabric wreath will not wilt like a fresh one would.

What You Need

Firstly, decide on the size of wreath you want to create and select the appropriate metal wreath form to use as a base. Fourteen-inch wreaths are the most popular, and to complete one this size you will need 1.5 yards of cotton poplin fabric. This can be in the form of one continuous length of fabric for a wreath with a uniform appearance or a different mix of fabrics.

If you want more colours or are designing a wreath to match your existing décor, you may prefer to choose a pack of fat quarters. A fourteen-inch wreath will take six fat quarters or twelve fat eighths. A wide range of lovely fabrics is available online from suppliers such as http://www.higgsandhiggs.com.

Alternatively, for a scrappy look, use fabrics you have left over from previous projects as long as the colours are appropriate for the occasion. Cut these into one-inch by six-inch pieces - you will need around forty to complete a fourteen-inch wreath.

How to Construct Your Wreath

Take one of your pieces of fabric and slide it underneath one of the wreath form’s wire rings. Tie it in a knot on top of the ring, leaving the ends loose. Slide the fabric along to the nearest crossbar and repeat this process on alternating wires until you have filled up a whole section of the wreath form.

Even better, a fabric wreath is something you can keep from year to year, so you will be saving money too! If using a variety of different fabrics, you can mix them up in a bag and use them at random so that you create an interesting mix. Fill the other sections of the wreath form in the same way.

Use another fabric scrap to hang your wreath and decorate it with beads or dried fruits if you like. some people regard the beginning of Advent as the appropriate time, a fabric wreath will not wilt like a fresh one would.
