canvas ruffle wreath {tutorial}

Now that our Christmas decorations are down I'm ready for a fresh clean look for our home. I really wanted a natural feel for our mantel that could be used during non-holiday seasons so I made this ruffle wreath using canvas drop cloth.

You will need:
First I cut my canvas drop cloth into 5 strips measuring 2.5" wide.

Then I sewed them together end to end. Open up the seams and iron them flat. (Sorry no picture of that step.)

Then I set my sewing machine to the longest stitch length.

Sew a basting stitch along the edge all the way to the end.

Then take one of your threads and pull to create the ruffle.

Pull it all the way to the end so it looks like this.

Then begin wrapping it around your wreath form. I hot glued it at the beginning to secure it in place.

Wrap it all the way around and hot glue it at the end.
