What you need

Fabric Scraps or swatches
Wire coat hanger
Optional Christmas decorations


This Christmas wreath craft has been made using upholstery fabric swatch samples that have been cut into strips.

Start by bending your coat hanger into a circle. Leave the hook at the top to hang it with.

Take your fabric and cut it into around 12 inch (30 cm) strips that are 2 inch (5 cm) wide.

Take your fabric strip and tie it into a knot around the wire circle. Keep doing this until the circle can no longer fit any more fabric strips on it.

This is a very simple craft but it looks great when completed so stick with it.

You will need lots of fabric strips for this project it will depend on how tight and full you want your wreath.

When you are finished use some plastic holly, bells or other decorations to decorate your wreath.
