I still love ombre…ha ha should I be over it yet?  Well I’m NOT!  When I was trying to come up with some sort of Fourth of July wreath, this idea kept popping in my head.  I love how it turned out, AND, like I always say…it’s SUPER easy!

 The Supplies:
12 inch diameter embroidery hoop
(I just used the inside hoop, the outside one I used for a different wreath ha!)
9 colors of fabric
(I bought 1/4 of each color)
 The colors are the most important part.  It took some time at Joann’s to compare fabric and figure out the patriotic ombre colors.  I even threw in some patterned pieces, you know, to spice things up.

Ok you guys, I have to admit something…I don’t usually like rag wreaths.  And I debated making one but I changed mine up a little and now I’m a fan.  This rag wreath is much smaller/thinner (which I like) and I cut the fabric so each piece was skinny.

Now a quick disclaimer.  This project is SUPER duper easy but takes some time to make.  The good part is it’s a no brainer, so just put on a movie or catch up on some favorite shows and tie away.  You’ll be done before you know it.
Each piece was around 4 1/2″ x 1/2″
 tie on the outside of the hoop (using one knot)
 tie on another piece on the side
 tie a piece on the inside
 Then after I tied on a few pieces I cut them again even thinner
 Here is another picture where I tied on 4 pieces. I would then cut them and scrunch them up real close.
After tying on a few, scrunch them up as close as possible and continue doing this around the whole wreath.
Each color block was about 4 1/2″
