How to Make a Ticking Stripe Fabric Wreath
Nothing says farmhouse style like some good, old fashioned Ticking Stripe. This classic blue and white striped fabric pairs so nicely with denim and I knew it would be a fun to DIY my own Ticking Stripe Fabric Wreath.
What is it about cold winter days that make me want to get creative and crafty?
Maybe it’s the stir craziness of being cooped up, or can it be that moving around keeps me warm?
Since we had an unexpected snow day today, I wanted to make something cozy and farmhouse-y.
So, I rummaged through my craft closet to see what inspired me. And nothing says farmhouse style like some good, old fashioned Ticking Stripe.
This classic blue and white striped fabric pairs so nicely with denim and I knew it would be a fun way to DIY something with it.
Today, I made my own Ticking Stripe Fabric Wreath and I do believe that it’s going to be a favorite of mine!
Here’s how to make one for yourself.
Ticking Stripe Fabric Wreath
(Some Affiliate Links provided below. Full disclosure here.)
2 yards Ticking Stripe Fabric
Denim Fabric – I used old blue jean scraps for mine.
16″ Wire wreath Form
Cut all your fabric into 6 inch strips. Be prepared for your hand to get tired with all the cutting. In retrospect, I wish I had one of those cool rotary cutting sets. Since I didn’t, my scissors got a workout!
I cut each strip to about 1/2 inch wide.
Next you tie your pieces to the wire wreath form. I wanted my wreath to be predominately the ticking stripe, so I scattered the pieces of denim here and there to add that pop of blue.
I worked in sections, cutting and tying, in order to give my hand a rest.
Once I finished the wreath, I added a few more pieces of denim here and there in spots that I thought needed a bit more.
Oh, I just love how it looks on my DIY Barn Door, don’t you?
Since this was such an easy DIY, I could make a Ticking Stripe Fabric Wreath in all kinds of colors. This would be a great handmade gift to give as well!
The little pieces of denim popping through add such whimsy, don’t you think?
So give er a try! You just might find yourself loving your creation as much as I do!
Thank you so much for sharing my post, Emily! Happy New year to you as well!
Your wreath looks wonderful! I really like the combination of fabrics you chose. I’m including your wreath in my Merry Monday Party Features next week. Happy New Year 🙂
Hooray for fabric scraps! This is such an easy wreath to make! I would say it took me at the most 2 hours to complete. Cutting the fabric was the most time consuming. I did one hour one day and finished it up the next day in about 30 minutes. Share a pic of your finished product with me! I’d love to see it!
I just spent weeks going thru all my fabric to organize it and have better idea what I have. Then today was looking for something else and found more fabric in an Iris drawer tower tucked in corner of sewing room. Might not use blue ticking but will be using something have plenty of. Have wreath form already also. Will be good project to work on while watching favorite tv shows. We don’t live close to a fabric store so I usually like to use what I have to try an idea out first. Then if it works out well for me, and this should, make at least one more or for a gift.
Your wreath is so cute,love the blue ticking and some denim interspersed among ticking, sure says farmhouse. How long did it take you to make?
Have great weekend and enjoy your new wreath.
Jen, I adore the ticking and denim combo and your wreath looks amazing.

Your wreath turned out so cute. It shows up nicely against the barn door. Our readers love seeing lovely projects. Your totally deserved the feature. Happy to hear being featured made you smile.
Thanks Jan! I loved linking up – I appreciate the invite!
Thank you Teresa! I love how easy this was, too!
Thank you ladies, so much for inviting me to join in on your first Linky Party! So many good posts to check out and be inspired! Have a wonderful weekend!
Thank you so much Cindy! I tied each ribbon to one single wire – and repeated the process for all four wires. It was a tie, scrunch it down, tie, scrunch it down method. I did take a coffee break halfway through to let my fingers rest.
I’m honored this inspired you! Share a pic if you make one! Enjoy your weekend!
Just stop by from Friday Friends Parade LP to let you know I am just smitten with your wreath tutorial. My affinity for ticking prints and wreaths means I just had to pin this to my board for my next crafting project. Thanks for sharing!
SO cute. Quick question. Did you tie each piece to the center wire or all of the wires on the wreath? It looks nice and full but I wanted to try it and mine look as good as yours!
Literally, this is so adorable! I want to make one right now! The ticking fabric has my heart and Jodie and I have visions of barn doors dancing in our heads so you are spot on 🙂 We are so excited you joined our linky party! We hope you’ll join each week. It’s going to be a ton of fun. Blessings, Julie & Jodie
That’s beautiful and you made it look so easy to do! I’d love for you to share over at a new party called Let’s Party
It’s really pretty, and a great way to recycle fabrics. Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty link Party this week. Pinned!

That’s a steal! And thank you so much for your sweet words! I appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment!
I have seen these cute wreaths pop up all over the internet.. Yours is my favorite with the ticking! I love the homey, farmhouse look of it and I happen to have a ton of blue and white ticking. Looks fabulous on your barn door. Don’t be mad at me…..I found a gorgeous red and pink scrap wreath in the form of a heart at Goodwill for $2.99. It’s going on my front door soon!
Love that fabric on this wreath. Nice one! Thanks for sharing at our link party!

Jen this wreath to me is perfection. I love using up strips of fabric. I always have too many left over. But the colors in your wreath are my favorite. I may have to give this a try! Pinning!!
Very cute! Americana, french country, nautical beach house…. it can work among many settings.
Very cute! And a great way to use up fabric scraps. Visiting from Thrifty Thursday party.
