Rag Rug Wreaths – a great beginner project…
Rag rug wreaths are an absolutely brilliant first project for rag rug beginners. They’re easy to make, quick to complete and don’t use all that much fabric (particularly when compared to a full on rug). Rag rug wreaths are great for practising the traditional shaggy technique of rag rugging, which is the easiest and most mindful rag rug technique to start out with. They’re a lovely small canvas to get creative.
Here are just a few of the Ragged Life rag rug wreaths we’ve made over the years.
This blog post is to showcase the wonderful rag rug wreaths of former students or purchasers of our Ragged Life Wreath Kit, but if you happen to find yourself feeling inspired and would like to make one for yourself, you can buy a Ragged Life Rag Rug Wreath Kit here or, if you already have the tools, you can buy the hessian, backing board and instructions here.
Below is our Rag Rug Wreaths Student Hall of Fame… enjoy!
p.s. If you’ve already made a rag rug wreath and would like to send me a photo then please do… With your permission, I’ll add it to the gallery below, so more students can be inspired by your craftiness 🙂 You can catch me on email@example.com
Rag Rug Wreaths – Student Hall of Fame:
Amelia made this lovely Spring wreath from one of our Ragged Life Wreath Kits. It just goes to show that wreaths aren’t just for Christmas!
Christine’s Traditional Christmas wreath looks gorgeous against this white door.
Janet used lovely warm colours for her wreath.
Gina added extra details to her rag rug wreath to make it even more festive. I think you’ll agree, the ribbon looks just great!
Bee decided to make her rag rug wreath into a unique centrepiece!
Louise is the first student I had combine loopy and shaggy techniques in her wreath.
Joyce’s wreath could be up in the house any time of the year.
I think Victoria’s wreath proves just how great green gingham looks in the background!
I absolutely love the bright pink in the centre of Shamila’s flowers – they lift the blues beautifully.
Deborah’s classic Christmas wreath was made for her sister. She’s got a few more rag rug wreaths to make yet!
Carolyn attached a lovely tartan bow onto the bottom of her rag rug wreath to make it even more festive 🙂
Cherry used gingham buttons in the centre of her flowers to make them pop.
I’ve been a silly billy and forgot to make a note of who sent me the photo of this lovely wreath – please do claim it if it was you!
Tricia made two wreaths but this one was her favourite.
Tricia made two wreaths – she added mini baubles to this one for a bit of sparkle.
Julia has her traditional wreath up at Christmas.
Aneeta started this jolly festive wreath in my first ever rag rug workshop at Le Salon Privé in St. Margaret’s in South West London.
Aneeta’s mum, Sunita, made this lovely rag wreath using Christmas fabric she had stored at home. So festive!
Juliet made this lovely festive Christmas wreath and put baubles in the centres of her flowers to make them pop – what a great idea!
Jane made a very traditional wreath out of her fabric odds and ends. I particularly like how the red and gold stands out against the dark greens.
