My torn heart


Last night I was ensconced by the fire with a basket of fabric remnants and a heart shaped wire that I found during my big clean up. I decided to give it the rag wreath treatment. It was only a single wire, so it's not as fulsome as the round wreath, but I quite like the results. As before, I cut long strips of fabric, ribbon or lace and just knotted them on. And, in a super-thrifty measure, I even saved the ends of the strips that I trimmed off to make into patchwork baubles later.

  2. Dear Streetcomber
    I think this heart wreath is really pretty and a very decorative and clever way to use up scraps. It would look lovely with Christmassy material too...now there's an idea...
    Best wishes

    1. Thank you:) You might even be able to twist one from a wire coat hanger, or maybe try a florist's shop.
