Fall Rag Garland & Mini Burlap Rosette Wreath


My mama is working on a fall table runner and asked me if I wanted her fabric scraps.  Sure, I said.  I knew just the thing to do with them.


I cut them into strips approximately 1.5” by 6”, frayed the edges just a little,  and tied them onto a long strip of brown ribbon.  Such a seriously simple and cute way to decorate.  I love the scrappy, homespun feel.  I hung it up on my kitchen window to add some fall color to the plain window (still haven’t gotten a curtain). 


I also hung a mini wreath (thrifted, of course) below it.  I have lots of leftover canvas dropcloth left over from the teepee we made last year.  I cut a strip, frayed the edges a bit,  and wrapped it around the wreath (using hotglue to hold) and made three little rosettes and hotglued them on. An excellent tutorial for making fabric rosettes can be found here. I attached another strip to hang it with and was done. 


Have you made anything beautiful with just scraps lately?
