The nice thing about this wreath was that it didn’t cost me much to make at all. I already had a stash of painter’s drop cloth and ribbon on hand, so all I purchased for this wreath was the form, some faux greens and some glass ornaments.
I found these little glass ornaments at Michaels, but real vintage ornaments would look so lovely on this wreath too!
To begin, start ripping your drop cloth into 1 1/2″ wide strips. Pull off any loose strings. This creates a lovely, rustic fringed edge on your drop cloth pieces. Next, cut your strips into 9″ lengths. I think I used about 200 1 1/2″ x 9″ pieces of drop cloth for my 12″ wreath.
Tie the strips around all 4 rings of your wire wreath form. To do this, I folded a strip of fabric in half, placed it under a wire ring, and then brought the free ends of the strip through the loop of the strip on the other side. Place the knotted strips quite close together to created a nice, full wreath.
Next, arrange your faux greenery onto the bottom of your wreath as you like it. Glue it in place with a glue gun. Create a big, fluffy bow out of the wired ribbon. Cut a piece of thin ribbon that’s about 10″ long, fold it in half, and safety pin it to the center of your wired bow.
Tie some glass ornaments onto the bottom of the thin ribbon, and then glue the bow in place on your wreath with a glue gun.
