You’ll want to start by cutting all your fabric strips. We cut ours about an 1″ wide and about 6-7″ long. We didn’t really do exact measuring, because we like to wing it around here. Nothing is perfection, just have fun with it!

I think linen and cotton would be the best fabric. As linen will hold its shape well and not droop. What I liked about cotton is that it was easy to rip into strips. Now to start tying, get ready for some sore hands. Make sure your metal wreath is bowed upwards when tying. Make sure both ends of the fabric turn upwards.
Tattered Fabric Wreath
I have made many wreaths that can just about go with anything. What I love about wreaths is that you can customize and change out parts to fit a certain season or style. Part way through tying the fabric on, I would adjust the ends of the fabric so they are upwards. Sometimes they twist around and are on the underneath side.
You can keep your wreath simple with just the fabric. But if you know me I love some florals. I simply added on some peonies, ranunculus, and thistles. Just use a hot glue gun to place these or some floral wire.

How much material do I need?
For a 14″ frame I would get 5 yards of fabric for the best results. If you get many different materials just split it up evenly between the yards.
Do I have to cut all my strips?
No! Do not do this it will waste a lot of your time. Cut about an 1″ into the fabric and then tear apart. But if you do want a more refined look without fringe. Then I would cut the fabric.
Which kind of fabric would be best?
Linen or cotton would be best. I used a mixture of both.Today I’m joined by some of my talented blogging friends who are also sharing their DIY Spring Wreath tutorials with you! Be sure to see what they are sharing (and how they made it!) by clinking the links below the images.
