Easy Halloween Decorations: Fabric Strip Wreath
This wreath is one of the easiest Halloween decorations you’ll ever make. All you need is a few simple craft supplies and time to make this Halloween wreath. Thank you to Jo-Ann for supporting my crafting habit and sponsoring this post!
I’m very excited to be working with Jo-Ann Fabrics for the next few months in a series of Celebrate the Seasons holiday craft posts. Of course, we’re starting off with Halloween decorations. I’m not a huge fan of super spooky or scary Halloween decorations. I prefer the cutesy pumpkins and candy. I also don’t own a Halloween wreath so this was the perfect opportunity to go to Jo-Ann’s and get creative.
This Halloween wreath is super, ultra simple to make. It requires no real crafting skills at all – just the ability to cut and tie. In fact, I had my 7 year old help me tie on the fabric strips.
The first thing you need is fabric. I purchased 1 1/4 yards of 5 different materials. I used three prints and two solids. I didn’t use all the material on my wreath so I think 1 yard of each would suffice.
You will also need one of these awesome wire wreath forms. I had never seen or used these before and I love them! This is a 16″ form but there are several sizes. The best part is that the form is only $2.49!
Cut each fabric in to 6 inch long by 1 inch wide strips. You definitely want these on the longer, rather than shorter side, to make them easier to tie. I am terrible at figuring out how to measure and cut so some of my strips were more 5 inches by 1 inch and they were hard to tie.
Once you have all your fabric strips cut, just start tying the strips around the wreath. I started at the outer edge and worked my way in. I left the inner most circle plain, but you can’t tell at all.
I wanted something in the middle of the wreath and I searched Jo-Ann high and low for just the right center piece. When I saw this “G” I knew I had it!
I’m absolutely thrilled with how my Halloween wreath turned out. I also love how easy it is to make for any holiday.
