Spring Rag Wreath

 

Well as I was changing everything sprucing up a bit for spring, I decided that the wreath that we had on our mirror in the living room that I love, was just to wintery ( it may or may not have been up since Christmas).

So I hit up my stash of fabric that would look good in my living room and that would have the colors and feel of spring.

Next a solid light weight knit that I believe my mom used back in the 70’s…….yes I come from a long line of fabric hoarders!

A white on white pin dot, this is a curtain that I bought for .50 cents from an estate sale.

A  pretty blue, yellow and piece with small pink flowers and butterflies.  This was .25 cents at a garage sale.

Lastly a shirt that did not fit right but I just love the color of, originally it was .50 cents at a yard sale.

After assembling my fabric I went to the closet and dug out a wire hanger.

  2. You crafts are so clever and thrifty! I am a fabric hoarder myself. I have my grandma's fabric leftovers and I love to find uses for them.

  4. Look how much fun that is! Rag wreaths and balls are the perfect way to recycle and reuse.

    The first wreath reminds me of Fourth of July!
