Similiar to the Rag Swags, this is a rag wreath for Fall.

The form was 18 inches and I cut the squares about 5" and used burgundy, gold, natural, green and orange and one fall print. It took about 3/4 of a yard of each of the colors. This is an old, old craft that we did probably 25 or more years ago, but very colorful and pretty.

I cut my squares with pinking shears, then with a philips-head screw driver, push each square in the straw wreath (do not remove the plastic wrapping, either green or clear) in the middle. You don't need glue, they will stay.
You just repeat this until the entire top, front, and bottom are covered. The squares should go in about every
1/4". The back needs to stay flat to rest against the wall.

If you buy the fabric it will cost about $6-7 and the wreath form is roughly $2, so you will have at least $9.
in it without labor. I will probably price these at $20. or maybe 22.50. It really doesn't take over 30 minutes if you work fast and furiously!

Claudia, thanks so much for sharing your fall rag wreath - it is just beautiful. We appreciate your including the instructions too (I guess you knew we'd be asking...)

Great job Claudia.
The colors remind me of indian corn.

You did a beautiful job Claudia and I love the colors.

This sure brings back a lot of memories of crafts of yesterday :O). Crafts are like clothing, they come back and it is all new once again!
