Drop Cloth Or Fabric
First things first! You can use any fabric you like for this project, but I’m using up the leftovers from my last drop cloth project to make this drop cloth wreath. If you follow along with my weekly projects, you’ll know I don’t let anything go to waste.
STEP 1: Cut The Drop Cloth Fabric
The first step is to lay out the fabric or drop cloth you choose to use on a flat surface. My dining room table is the perfect spot for me, and I use this surface for many of my fabric projects.
If you are using a drop cloth, I high recommend bleaching it first. CLICK HERE to see how I bleached mine.
For this DIY wreath, you’ll need to cut approximately 1X6 inch strips of fabric.
I do recommend you cut as you go so that you don’t cut too many.
STEP 2: Start Attatching Fabric To The Wire Frame
There are five sections on the 12-inch wire frame wreath. I found it was the easiest to work one area at a time.
Take one 6 inch strip of fabric and tie it to the wire wreath frame. You can start from any side, but I found it easier to work from the outside in. The first row will progress quickly.
The second row is a little slower. You can see how I had to fish the strips between the wires. It’s not tricky, just time-consuming.
The raw edges of the material will fray. It makes it all the more beautiful, in my honest opinion. There’s just something about the organic look and feel of this drop cloth wreath.
STEP 3: Continue Attatching Fabric
Continue section by section until all the wires have been tied with the fabric strips.
Once it’s complete, take the drop cloth wreath outside and give it a good shake to remove the frayed edges of the fabric. Doing this will soften the edges of the material and give it a beautiful softness.
You may need to adjust the strips of fabric to position them upward. During the tieing process, they can get distorted and twisted together.
STEP 4: Hang Your Drop Cloth Wreath !
For my drop cloth wreath, I chose to layer it over an existing lambs ear wreath I had. I tied it to the frame from behind to give it a pop of color and a farmhouse look. Use a black wreath door hanger that matched the hardware gave it the cohesive look I wanted in my kitchen.
Doesn’t it look fabulous on my old new pantry door?
It’s totally up to you. You can use this neutral drop cloth wreath as is or even add your seasonal decor for a fabulous front door wreath.
Try adding a simple pine cone and a small pumpkin for a fabulous Fall look! The wreath pops right off of my black-painted door.
What would you use to make this wreath your own?
And that, my friends, is how you make a neutral drop cloth wreath in about an hour. Super simple, and you may even have these items already in your craft room. I did!
