Patriotic Rag Wreath created by Scrapper's Snips and Stitches
Whether it is Independence Day, Flag Day, Memorial or Labor Days, Veterans' Day, or Election Day, if you are the patriotic sort, this is the rag wreath for you. Stripes of navy and cream fabric, with a touch of red, have been used to fill in the 14" wire frame. This wreath has a really nice canvas ribbon with red and blue stars on a cream background.
Rag Wreaths are extremely popular in my corner of the Ozarks, right here in Branson, Missouri. There are so many ways to decorate with a rag wreath. They can be formal or rustic, seasonal, indoor/outdoor, created in every color scheme imaginable, but the main reason that I include them in my shop is that each one that I make is made from fabric in my scrap pile. Most of my rag wreaths are made with quilting cotton scraps, but some are from repurposed jeans or t-shirts. Because my handmade rag wreaths are created with everyday cloth, they will serve you best as an indoor decoration. I do have a raggedy denim wreath hanging on my front door, but it is not directly in the natural elements. Wreaths can be hung on a wall or door or laid upon a table for use in a centerpiece. Please, if you are using candles near your wreath, be sure the candle is contained in glass or other protective material as rag wreaths are flammable. Better yet, use battery operated flameless candles.
The rag wreaths listed in this shop are made with strips of fabric tied to a 14” wire frame. Some wreaths have longer strips (6”-8”) of fabric for a shaggier style. Wreaths made with shorter material strips (4”- 5”) tend to be less primitive looking.
Be sure to fluff your wreath before use. Fraying and loose threads are typical of these rag wreaths.
