Rag Wreaths

My sisters and I got together to make rag wreaths for the 4th of July.  They are really simple to do.  I would suggest this as a group activity and have everyone bring different patterns of fabric to share.  Plus, that way you have someone to chat with while you are tying all those knots!

First cut strips of fabric in the different colors you would like in strips of 1"x7".
We chose patterns of red, white and blue for the 4th of July.
Next, bend a wire hanger in to a circle.

Then you tie the strips of fabric around the hanger, as my sister Noelle is doing.
(And she is so excited about it as well.)

Ta da!  The final product!
