Pieced Pastimes: Pinspired 5 Minute Scarf Wreath Tutorial

Pinspired 5 Minute Scarf Wreath Tutorial

 Sometimes I like to do a quick project, as it allows me to take a break from some of the more time consuming ones. This little wreath fits the bill perfectly.

I started off with some inspiration from Pinterest and came up with my own version.

Now, onto the quick and easy tutorial:

Supplies:
- 1 Wreath Form (I used a wire one, but any other style should work as well)
- 1 Scarf
- Trim of your choice (I used some cotton lace trim)
- Elastic Bands

Begin by simply wrapping one end of the scarf around the wreath form. I left about 6" hanging to start mine.
Continue wrapping around the form (adjusting the overlapped areas, so none of the form shows) until you are back to the beginning.

Gather the two ends of the scarf with the rubber bands.

Tie your trim around the elastics to cover them.
And that's pretty much it!
It is cold and dreary here today. The sun is hidden amongst the clouds (hence, the not so great pictures).

It is a good day for a fire, a cup of hot cocoa and this simple winter wreath.
