Students’ Rag Rug Wreaths

Rag rugging can be a pretty time-consuming craft so I rarely get to see a student finish their project in the class. That’s probably why I get so excited when a former student sends through a photo of their finished rag rug piece. As it’s December, I thought I’d share with you a selection of the wonderful rag rug wreaths that students have sent me recently – I’m always in awe of how creative people are with such a relatively small project!

If you’ve finished a rag rug wreath and would like to send me a photo then please do! I’ll add it to the gallery so more students can be inspired by your craftiness 🙂 If you feel inspired to make one or maybe a few rag rug wreaths after seeing what others have made then 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 🙂

I hope you enjoy the variety of the wreaths below and I can’t wait to see mine in pride of place over Christmas!

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.
