Let me show you how to make this warm and fuzzy winter scarf wreath for your home this fall!
Cozy Fall Plaid Scarf Wreath
- 18 inch Make It: Fun® White Foam Wreath
- 72″ x 27″ Blanket Scarf
- Fall Foliage Bushes & Stems, Felt Ball Stems
- Metal Floral Pins
- Sharp Fabric Scissors
- Low-temp Glue & Gun
Follow the Scarf Cut Pattern in the diagram below. Use one ends of the scarf to cover the wreath and the other end to make the scarf tie.
Lay the foam wreath in the center of the foam.
Cut a circle using a round object out of the center of the fabric.
Trim the corners and fringe off of the fabric on the outside of the foam wreath.
Cut a 2-inch strip of fabric to cover the inner edge of the wreath.
Glue the fabric inside the edge of the wreath.
Fold the fabric over the backside of the wreath and glue to the back top edge of the wreath. Move around the wreath, pull the fabric snug, fold, gather and glue fabric to the edge of the wreath all the way around.
Trim the excess fabric off of wreath. Cut slits in the fabric on the inner side of the wreath. Pull the fabric tight and glue to the back of the wreath. Tuck in and hide any foam or excess fabric.
Cut the second leftover piece of fabric in half longways (see chart above). Glue the two raw ends together in the center, leaving fringe on both outer ends. This will give you a smaller 4-foot scarf to tie around the wreath.
Bundle up some of the fall foliage and stems with a rubber band. Tie the scarf with a double knot around the wreath and insert the foliage bundle through it.
Secure foliage with floral pins pushed through the foam. Arrange scarf and glue down if needed. Glue a small strip of fabric to the top back of the wreath and hang!
I just love how the fun felt circles make the fabric pop! This wreath is sure to be a cool conversation piece this fall.
