Make A Country Chic Mini Wreath with Fabric Scraps

You don't need a ton of supplies or even new supplies to make your own holiday decor. Using left over fabric and twine scraps, pieces of things you've found or are able to recycle is a great way to repurpose to create something new for your holiday decorating. Recently I went on a hunt at the local thrift store and found this really great old looking jingle bell. I had originally planned to just hang it on a door but then decided to make a wreath to combine the bell with.

How to make your own country chic mini wreath

  1. Cut out the center of the Smoothfoam disc. Don't worry about smoothing out the rough edges, you're going to cover them.
  2. Wrap fabric around the wreath shaped foam. I used a sleeve from an old sweater, so I just slipped the foam into the sleeve and wrapped it. Hot glue will not stick to the Smoothfoam very well, but it will stick to fabric, so to adhere the fabric in place, glue the fabric to itself.
  3. Wrap twine, cord and thin fabric scraps around the wreath, tie in place. Adhere with glue if necessary.
  4. Attach whatever extra embellishments you'd like. I attached my repurposed jingle bell in the center and then used a small red fabric scrap to include as a bow.
  5. Make a hole in the back of the wreath for hanging or add a piece of string or wire.

You don't have to go out and buy a ton of materials to make your own chic decor. This wreath was made using almost entirely repurposed materials. The Smoothfoam was the only “new” item I used. By combining scraps of fabric; old shirts, jeans and sweaters that no one is wearing with a fun new idea, you can create really great holiday pieces that you can use for years. Head to the thrift or second hand stores and see what treasures you can find and then create something new and wonderful to add to your home.
