DIY Rag Tie Wreath Project Steps

Create a colorful DIY rag tie wreath for any season or occasion with a few simple items and upcycled fabrics from Goodwill thrifting.


Supplies needed:

  • Thrifted fabrics
  • Scissors
  • Wire wreath frame



For this wreath, we shopped our local Goodwill NCW store for brightly colored fabrics in a variety of patterns. Shirts, pants and scarves are great starting materials.

Using scissors, cut your fabric into strips, approximately 1 inch in width and 6 to 8 inches in length. For variety, you also could do larger and thicker strips.



Begin tying your fabric strips around the wreath frame. Alternate colors and patterns throughout. Continue filling the frame with strips of fabric until your entire wreath is filled.
