~Recycled Mason Jar Band Wreaths~

Recently, I was reading The Enchanting Rose's Blog Post  and this dear sweet lady made these adorable wreaths.
Being crafty as I am (or try to be), I wanted to make them, but soon found out my lack of wreath circles or curtain rings, so I thought to myself, 'Why not make them with mason jar bands?' I tried it, and it worked! So here I am, thrilled to show you how to make your very own

Recycled Mason Jar Band Wreath.

Supplies You'll Need: 
Hot Glue Gun 
Red and green fabric (a yard or less should be good enough. You may need more, or less.) 
Mason Jar bands (they don't have to be new, you can use some old ones you might have laying around the house.)
 Duct Tape. 

Here's what to do. 

The band is too cold to glue anything to, so put a small piece of duct tape on it.

 Cut a strip of fabric, red or green,

 Glue the fabric onto the tape, and start wrapping the fabric around the band, putting a small dab of glue to seal it in.

Once you have the fabric all the way around the band, cut (and glue if necessary.)

 Cut a few fabric strips  photo ABIS TUT 007_zpsmsimt6m4.jpg

 and then cut them all the same desired size.

Next, start tying the strips to the band.

After half of the band is covered, take all the ties in one hand, and pull gently. (This brings them closer together, do the same for the other side. You may need to cut more strips.)

Tie some ribbon on one end, and it is finished!

There you have it! I have already made three of these, so here are some pictures of my other wreaths.

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
