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.
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!
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.

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″
