One of my favorite projects, which happens to be ridiculously easy and made entirely of left over fabric, is this Shaggy Fabric Wreath.
You can use this style of wreath anywhere throughout the house and at any time of year but I find myself using it the most at Christmas.
Recently, I took the wreath up a notch by adding a collection of rusty jingle bells.
The original wreath contains approximately 750 @ 3″ fabric squares pushed into an 18″ straw wreath. The fabrics were a variety of textures, solids and patterns in shades of ivory, tan, taupe and white.
Don’t let the 750 scare you. It took a bit of time but it was so easy!
My experiment with rusting my own jingle bells left me with a bunch of left over bells that ended up being the perfect complement to this shaggy wreath. You can find various shades and colors of jingle bells at craft stores and dollar stores.
The bells were attached with floral pins.
And randomly tucked in amongst the fabric squares.
You can also layer different decorations or embellishments on top of the wreath to add interest. Last year I used this shimmery star.
This year I tucked the burlap hanger behind the wreath and moved the star to my front door wreath. I’m still debating whether to bring it back inside or add something else.
I’ve decorated with a neutral Christmas theme for the past few years but this year I’m adding just a touch of red back in. More Christmas details coming soon.
Don’t you love it when a simple, easy and inexpensive project turns out this cute? 🙂
