Primitive Farmhouse Wreath using Buffalo Plaid Fabric
This is by far one of the easiest ways to make a wreath and it is so cute and tiny!
First, I cut up an old flannel shirt with a wonderful black and white buffalo plaid fabric. This shirt was a girl’s size 7/8 and I had plenty of fabric to make this wreath with. The pieces were 6 inches long and about 2 inches wide. I used a pair of pinking shears, so I wouldn’t have too many frayed edges, but regular scissors will work too.
Then, I tied each strip of fabric twice into a knot around a 5 inch metal ring. I kept tying on pieces of fabric until the ring was full.
Now, you could add any small trinket or flowers as an accent. I decided to add one of my handmade ceramic clay hearts as an accent and simply attached it with a black pipe cleaner through the hole I had in the top of the heart.
I think it gives a slightly primitive look with the way I painted the heart, and it definitely gives me that farmhouse, cozy feel!
I hope you enjoy making one and if you would like to purchase one of mine, click on the pictures to below to check out these listings.
