How to Make a Fabric Wreath:

  1. With pinking shears or using a rotary cutter with a pinking blade, cut fabric into approximately 2.5" squares. If using small scraps, simply pink the edges of what you have.

  2. Pour some foam-safe glue out into a small cup, plate, or another disposable container.

  3. Place the tucking tool into the center of the right side of the fabric, twist the fabric, dip point into glue, and tuck the fabric into the wreath. You don’t have to push in too far, just enough so that the fabric stays in place.

  4. Continue tucking the fabric pieces unto the wreath until no white Styrofoam shows. You needn’t do the back, but make sure to do the sides of the wreath both inside and out.

  5. Allow to dry. Add hanger and display!
