Ragamuffin Wreaths


Using her as an inspiration I made three ragamuffin wreaths this weekend. They're easy to make, fast to make, easy to personalize and fun. These are for my two nieces and a friend. Here's how you do it:
Find matching fabric - about 1 yd of fabric (I purchase 1/4 yd of 5 types) made these three wreaths.
Cut strips (10 in x 1 1/2 in) and tie them onto a rounded wire hanger. Nester's original ragamuffin is a swag (strips tied onto a ribbon).
I wanted to personalize each wreath, hence the balsa wood banner.
I covered the hook-y part of the hanger with hot-glued ribbon. Easy!

Those wreaths are adorable! I love that you can pick out the colors and personalize them for each recipient. So so cute. I wonder if I have time to make a few before Christmas??
