Rag A Muffin Wreath

Hello Lovelies!

 Have you heard of Rag A Muffin Wreaths??   I just discovered them and I'm so glad i did!

Honestly, these do take a Little bit of time to put together but it well worth it. It's really very easy. Basically its just shoving 3"x 3" pieces of fabric into a straw wreath. A dab of hot glue on the ends before you stuff in the wreath helps hold it in place. Depending on the size of your straw wreath ~ i thinks mine was a 18" wreath and i used about 500 squares of fabric ~ and i didn't totally cover the back. sounds like alot but once ya get to cutting it goes by fast.
hung up with a burlap ribbon is like the icing on the cake!

Look at all that Shabby Tattered Goodness!

 What a great way to use up your fabric scraps! I dug into my stash pulled out coordinating fabrics in shades of white. The best part is i felt like i was cleaning out my massive fabric piles ~ why? i was even saving little bits of fabric is beyond me, but good thing i did cause now i have this Fabulous Wreath! So I've got rid of some clutter and now have a Romantically Shabby wreath to hang in front of my Antique mirror!



 I loved my wreath so much i decided to make Rag A Muffin Balls!  Again super easy just stuff Styrofoam balls with fabric.

 Aren't these so cute! Can you picture a bunch of them sitting in a wire bowl on a farm table? How Shabby Chic Right?
These were made with old vintage doilies that were stained and had tares in them. Normally i would have just thrown doilies away that were just to ratty but not now!! These were fun to make and something  that can easily be done while my lil helper is around so today I'll be making a couple more to take to the shop. So if you'd like one without having to spend the time making one stop on by and buy yourself a present!

Have a Wonderful Weekend !!

Oh how pretty! I love your wreath! Especially nice on your vintage mirror! ... I see you are from Southern Maryland. My daughter lived there for several years. She was a teacher at Leonardtown High School. We just fell in love with the area!
