Easy Halloween Fabric Wreath...Just Tie It!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy Halloween Wreath...Just Tie It!It’s been crazy busy at my house so I am doing some easy decorating for Halloween this year beginning with this super-simple-to-make fabric wreath! The little grands are excited about the arrival of Halloween so I wanted to be sure that I had something special on my front door to greet them. And if the wreath looks familiar, it’s because this is actually the third one I have created using this method, including…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy Halloween Wreath...Just Tie It! supplies Here’s what you will need:
  • 1 yard each of 2 different coordinating fabrics (Most prints are 44-45 inches wide.)
  • 14 inch foam wreath form
  • Jute twine  
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun

First, cut off the selvedge (the white part along the edge) then cut each of the two fabrics in half so that you now have four 18 x44 inch pieces. (I find that it is easier to work with a smaller section rather than the entire yard of fabric.) Next cut each of these into three equal pieces. My measurements are not exact since it depends on the size of your selvedge. For each of the fabrics, stack up the three pieces that you have just cut and cut them again into nine 2” strips. Repeat until you have cut all of the fabrics into strips.

  1. Fold a strip in half by its width and tie it around the form using a double knot. Then open up the ends of the strips to create a fuller bow.
  2. Tie them in a pattern that pleases you. I found that tying them in groups of six helped to create larger splashes of color.
  3. Keep working until you have covered the whole wreath form.
  4. Be sure that you have added in as many strips as you need to fill in the whole wreath.
