Fabric Wreath

I used this tutorial to make a fabric wreath. I've been working on it the past couple of days in small spurts of time. I found it hard to sit very long and tie all those fabric strips on the wreath. It is hard on your fingers!

I followed the general tutorial directions but didn't use a honey bun. I pulled fall-looking scraps from my scrap bin and cut them into 2x5in strips. I ended up not cutting enough fabric and didn't have enough to go around my fourth wire on the outside so I stopped at the third. I used a couple different types of fabric in order to give it more depth and texture.

I love the way it turned out. Things I would do different next time are cut more fabric and not use thick pieces of fabric because they were hard to tie.

I've got one more wreath and I plan to do that one in Christmas fabric. These are tedious and I hate tedious things. However, I love the look of these so much. So, looks win. I'm secretly hoping I can find more of these wreaths at yard sales or clearance  so I can make a few more for other holidays/seasons.
