fabric-wreath-goodWhether you are having a barn wedding and are looking for something gorgeous to hang on the barn door or you’re simply after a pop of color to add to your own front door, this DIY fabric garland wreath is one of the easiest DIY projects you’ll ever attempt. This would also make a fun project for a bridal shower; everyone could go home with a wreath that they made with their own hands!

You will need:

  • A variety of fabrics cut or torn (we used pinking shears for the wreath shown above) into pieces that are approximately 6 inches long and 1 – 1.5 inches wide. You can vary the length and width of the pieces to your liking. You will need about 150 pieces for one wreath
  • Metal coat hanger
  • pliers
  • metal cutters
  • ribbon
  • safety glasses

Bend your coat hanger into a circle.


Use pliers to even out bends in the hanger.


This is how it should look:


Don your safety glasses and cut off the hook with wire cutters.


If you want you can make a smaller hook like this using your pliers:


Gather your pieces of fabric. We used five different fabrics.


Starting at the hook, tie on each piece of fabric.


Keep going until you have covered the entire hanger.



Use a ribbon to hand wreath, or use the hook.


This wreath was made with torn fabric. The fabric pieces are 1.5 inches wide and six inches long.
