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.

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!
