shabby fabric wreath

i love playing around with colours and textures of different fabrics & especially like no sew projects. this is a simple wreath i made using torn blue & white striped ticking, aqua floral fabric, striped ribbons & braid knotted onto a wire coat hanger stretched and bent into a circle. i can imagine this in a bedroom or an idea for a shabby beach christmas.

see it here

i've made a white and natural fabric wreath as well for christmas, i will show you later & now my hands are sore from tying knots..

have a great day!



  1. So easy & so cute. I'm going to pull out all my leftover ribbon & take a look.

  2. What a sweet coastal wreath! Lovely -

    thanks for sharing and hope the hands heal soon!

  3. Cheryl I love it! What a great idea and the Christmas one sounds so pretty. Your shop looks really great by the way.

  4. It's lovely. I'm in the Bahamas so I especially like the textures and pastels. Can't wait to see the Christmas wreath.

  5. Great idea. Just discovered your blog - it's lovely. Spent about a year in Sydney, years and years ago. Such a beautiful, inspiring place !

  7. You are one clever gal. Looks like you did it on an old coat hanger. What a wonderful project. Congratulations I love it.

  8. PS Your Etsy store is looking fantastic. And mostly all made by you!!! Incredibly charming and I repeat....... so clever and talented.

    My prediction is it won't be long before you have your own crafting segment on the latest homey TV show. Go Girl!!!!

  9. What a pretty combination of colors & the starfish adds the finishing touch!
