  • Scrap fabric assorted colors, textures and types
  • Fabric scissors
  • Measuring tape or ruler
  • Wire Wreath Form 18" diameter
  • Large wooden monogram letter 16" diameter


  • Gather the scrap fabrics you plan to use. Go ahead and mix up the colors, textures and weights of your scrap materials.
  • Using a pair of fabric scissors, cut the fabrics into strips measuring 10” long and ½”-1” wide.
  • For the fabrics that are lighter weight cut the strips wider at 1”.
  • Keep the cut strips sorted by color and fabric type.
  • To assemble the wreath, tie one strip around two of the wires starting at the inner ring.
  • Take a second piece and tie in around the two center wires.
  • Then take a third piece and tie that around the two outer wires.
  • Continue this pattern around the entire wire wreath form.
  • Push the tie strips to one side making room for more.
  • Continue around the entire wire wreath form until you are happy with the look. And trim the longer pieces if you find any looking uneven or too “shaggy”.
  • To finish the Scrap fabric wreath, secure the wooden monogram inside the center of the wreath using floral wire.
  • And lastly, hang the wreath on a door or wall to enjoy!
