Scrap Project: Ruffled Flower Wreath

As you all know....I am a scrap hoarder.   I have at least 3 large garbage bags full.  Seriously!  I need to use it...well at least some of it.  So here is my first project a Ruffled Flower Wreath...

 Don't you just love it!
 I do!
I used 2 different methods to ruffle the fabric.  One is from HERE and the other from HERE

My fabric pieces were anywhere from 1/2 inch to 2 inches wide.  Most were 44 inches long some were a little shorter.  They all were not exactly straight cuts.  Many of them were the pieces that I trimmed off the edge of fabric to straighten it up or the little leftover piece when I finished off a piece of fabric. 

Then after I ruffled all the pieces I rolled them into flower looking pieces.  Then I cut a piece of cardboard into a square about 18 x 18 inches.  Then I hot glued all the fabric onto the cardboard.  It was really easy and with those easy ruffling techniques it was really quick (about an hour)

What do you all think should be my next project?

I LOVE this. I think it is awesome you call yourself a scrap hoarder. That is hilarious!!! I am a hoarder myself. I am definitely going to try this. I love looking at several different fabrics TOGETHER. With some of my scraps I made hoop art work.


I think it is really pretty!

I love how different all the flowers are. I'm really glad you gave the measurements too because it helped me do a mental inventory of my stash to see if I had the right fabrics. This is the perfect craft for Two Uses Tuesday. I'd love you to link it up http://www.purfylle.com/2015/04/two-uses-tuesday-link-up-24.html
