{Fabric Wreath Tutorial}

I see all these cute wreaths around bloggieland right now.  So I thought I would just jump on the boat and make one too.  Turns out, I really like my creation.  It is a little different since I used fabric for the wreath.  It was pretty simple too.  I have seen on Pinterest buying foam plumping pipe stuff at the home improvement store for .97.  It will seriously make two maybe three wreaths.  But the possibilities are endless with it!

What you will need: (for the wreath itself)
I used a piece of fabric that measured 5 inches wide by 40 inches in length.
The foam pipe stuff... (I am so technical I know!)
Sewing machine
Duct tape
First I ironed down the ends of my fabric to keep it from fraying.
 I then sewed both side down.
Fold the fabric in half right side facing each other and sew all the way down.  Remember to back stitch!
Turn the fabric out and you should have a nice little tube.
Here where the foam pipe comes in.  Slip the fabric onto the pipe and once that is done simply just cut the pipe with a pair of scissors.  Really easy to cut.
Use duct tape to hold the pipe together.
Then just cover the pipe with the fabric.
Viola!!!  Insta wreath!!!
