Materials Needed:

  • fabric scraps
  • scissors or rotary cutter
  • 12" embroidery hoop
  • iron (optional)

Cut Scraps

Gather a variety of fabric scraps in appealing colors and patterns. Press and cut into approximately 100 1"x7" strips.

Tie the Knots

Separate the embroidery hoop's inner and outer rings — only one ring is needed for this project. Simply knot fabric strips one at a time around the ring (Image 1). Pack the knots together as close as possible so none of the hoop is visible. Before hanging, twist and fluff the strands for a full-looking wreath (Image 2). Tip: Consider adding a decorative ribbon and hang it with or without a bow.
