I wanted to share with you another project I helped my sister with for her baby’s room! My mom gave her a reclaimed window that she hung up but it was looking a little boring so we thought it needed some sprucing up. We’ve seen lots of ruffle wreaths but decided to make up our own version. It was really only after experimenting that we came up with this. Both of us loved the results and how simple it was to do!

Here’s what you will need if you want to try it…

1) 1 yard of fabric (found at JoAnn’s Fabrics, type of polyster)
2) Scissors
3) Hot glue gun
4) Foam wreath
5) Long Pins

Length of fabric is 36 inches long.

We used another strip of fabric, 2 pins, and some tacks to hang it up. It’s actually somewhat reminiscent of the tissue poms, I shared last week! I have one more project I want to share with you before I share the whole nursery! Look for that later this week!!

  • I LOVE this wreath and am about to sit down and make this, but Im a little confused on the length of the strips you cut. Did you cut the long length or the short length? Are your strips all a yard long? I’m assuming they are not a yard long?ReplyCancel

  • Hi Amber – glad you are going to try this! I cut the fabric the width of it so yes I am assuming that the strips were around a yard long πŸ™‚ Hope that helps!ReplyCancel

    I am also wondering what size foam wreath you used. It looks like it probably was a 12 inch. Or was a 14 in? I just don’t want to run out of fabric.ReplyCancel

  • Nancy B

    What type of marial did u use for the wreath.ReplyCancel

  • Sara

    I love the wreath. What type of material did u use and how long are the strip you use for the ruffles.ReplyCancel

  • kellyhicks

    Thank you Sara! I found the fabric in the clearance section and I think it was some type of polyester. The strips are 36 inches long.ReplyCancel

  • Diane

    Lots of questions, what size wreath? What size did you cut each piece to put on the wreath? okay I read through all the posts and found that the wreath size is 12. However how long is each ribbon I understand the width length but width, and where you cut for each flower form?ReplyCancel

    • kellyhicks

      Diane – The stripes of fabric both for around the wreath and the flowers are 36 inches long.ReplyCancel

  • Diane

    Okay all I need to really know is how long you cut each ruffle? 2-3 inches long?ReplyCancel

  • Audrey

    I’m not a big measure precisely kind of person, so I just kind of cut my strips a few inches wide, then folded by yard of fabric twice and cut stips, and divided those by 3. I think they were around 18-24 inches like you said. I used a cotton polka dot fabric and it came out with a different look than yours because of the nature of the fabric. I really like it though! Thanks for the tutorial.

    Oh, and since my fabric was heavier, I hot glued each one down and then pinned it for extra stability.

    Took me about 30-45 min to complete tops.ReplyCancel

  • So cute! I’d love to do this for my baby girl’s room. I’m sooo not crafty but with your instructions, I have hope! Pinning… πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

  • Love it! Just made with some green organza that I had on hand. I used about 40 – 3″ x 8″ strips to make to little ruffles. I folded them back and forth on the table top like you would to make a paper fan as a kid. I stuck a flat head straight pin about 1/2″ from bottom of strip and fanned it out after I stuck it into the wreath. Since I was using up scrap organza that someone had given me I’m only guessing that the amount I used to wrap around the foam wreath was about 4 yards long. I just pinned it and it seems to be fine. My organza is sort of a shimmery Christmas green. So happy with how it turned out. Want to keep it, but it is for a silent auction at my son’s school. Thanks for sharing the idea. I needed something quick and lovely!ReplyCancel
