I created this rag wreath for the Luck O the Irish Swap - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=294326.0.

It was really simple to make!

Materials Needed:
Scraps of coordinating fabric or trim
Wire hanger

1 - Cut your fabric into strips about 1 1/2 inches x 6 1/2 inches - no need to be exact! I even used different widths of ribbon.
2 - Bend a wire hanger into a circle shape and bend the hanger's hook into a hook that you can use to hang the wreath.
3 - Tie the strips onto the hanger - pushing them together and fluffing as you go.
4 - And Voila! a beautiful rag wreath!

You could even tie the strips of fabric around a piece of rope or a string of lights to create a garland instead!
