Chicken Wire Rag Flag {Wreath}

This year as I was pulling out my 4th of July decorations I spotted my 4th of July Rag Wreath.  It instantly sparked some creativity and I got the inspiration for my Chicken Wire Rag Flag Wreath.
First thing I did was head to the fabric store. I picked up some blue dotted fabric, red striped fabric, and some muslin to make my rag wreath. I think I ended up using about 2 1/2 yards of fabric. Then I cut out a flag shape (aka: a rectangle) of chicken wire from my roll. It ended up measuring 25 x 16 inches.

I started ripping and tearing the fabric into strips. This took some time and made quite a stringy mess all over my floor. I made each strip about an inch wide and about 6in long.

I started out tying some of the strips of fabric, mapping out where I wanted all the different fabrics to go. It was at this point that I realized that this project was going to take me awhile. As I tied and tied I became unsure as to how this project would turn out.

Once I had the entire piece of chicken wire filled with red, white, and blue fabric I realized it was totally worth it.

There she is in all her glory hanging on my front door. Obviously not your traditional wreath by any means, but it is hanging on my door!

The chicken wire easily hooks right onto the wreath hanger on my door. It makes me so happy just looking at it!!!

Here is my little porch all ready for independence day!!!

Tonight I’m getting ready to host a craft night at my house. Right now I have 27 ladies invading my home to make a 4th of July inspired craft and enjoy each others company! I’ll post all about it next week! Have a great weekend everyone!!!
