Candy Cane Wreath DIY Tutorial
• You do not need to add a bow or anything else for this to be super cute on its own.
• The heart added at the end for embellishment had me thinking that this could make a wonderful Valentine’s Day wreath too!
• There is no need to press or steam your fabric unless it is so wrinkled it is prohibiting you from being able to cut a straight line. Irregularity adds to the charm of this wreath!
Candy Cane Wreath DIY Tutorial Materials:
• White Cotton Material (approximately 2 yards, 44″ wide)
• Red Cotton Material (approximately 1 yard, 44″ wide)
• Wire Wreath Form (14″)
• Measuring Tape
Candy Cane Wreath DIY Tutorial Directions:
• Lay your fabric folded in half onto a flat surface.
• Fold in half widthwise.
• Fold in half lengthwise.
• Now fold in half widthwise.
• Lay the measuring tape across your material horizontal to the folds (see photo above).
• Now cut across the places where the fold is (see photo above).
• You will end up with a 1″ x (approximately) 4½” to 5″ length (it depends on how wide your material is).
• Continue to do this for all the white and red fabric.
• Begin to tie the fabric onto the wreath form. Left over right and under, right over left and under.
• This is the pattern that emerged:
• Working section by section, from left to right.
• Starting with the bottom (smallest) row;
5 white/5 red/4 white
4 white/ 5 red/ 7 white
2 white/ 5 red/ 8 white
1 white/ 5 red/ 12 white
• You may have to adjust your counts accordingly.
• Continue until you have filled your wreath. Make sure you fluff as you go so you can tell the wreath is filled in.
• When finished, make sure all of the ends are tucked into the front of the wreath, and the knots are facing behind the wreath. Fluff the fabric with your fingers.
• Attach any bows or embellishments (using hot glue or wire depending on what you decided to attach).
• Hang and enjoy!
