5 Easy and Cheap Spring/Summer Wreaths
Making these wreaths is therapeutic and super simple. They are a fabulous addition to any door or interior decor. A little girls room would look adorable with the pink and red wreath. A mantel wreath done with your home’s primary colors would be sweet and cozy. Best of all, these spring/summer wreaths are easy and cheap to make so the sky’s the limit on what you can create. They can be changed easily and stored without worry of smashing flowers or other goodies on a typical wreath.
Material for this wreath can come from anywhere; old t-shirts, jeans, clothes the kiddos have outgrown, etc. It’s a great way to recycle and the list is endless. If you are a quilter, you are bound to have tons of scraps that can be used. However, fear not, if none of these are available to you or not in the color combos you would like, you can buy fat quarters or jelly rolls from the craft or fabric store. In the wreaths below, I have used both fat quarters and jelly rolls that I purchased to make specific color combinations.
I cut each piece, rather haphazardly, to be ten inches long and two inches wide. You do not have to be perfect, after all, it’s a rag wreath. I measured the first one and then just guessed at the rest of the cuts. It should look messy and colorful. The appeal of this wreath is the color combination and the ragged nature of the pieces.
