Hello! I wanted to share this fun wreath I made over the weekend with you guys. It was really easy and best of all, I used everything I already had on hand! Score!
I started off with my Valentines Wreath and took the red burlap off, which left me with a blank wreath. Then, wrapped it with strips of white flannel that I had left over from my Lamp Makeover. My hubby got me a new sewing machine for Valentines Day, (I was so surprised and excited, by the way!) So, I already had the fabric on hand too, from testing it out.
I knew I wanted to do a one sided look, like this one and this one. And, after gathering my scraps this is how it turned out!
Once I wrapped the flannel all the way around, I scrunched and pinned, with straight pins, the polka dot and houndstooth fabric into place. Very EASY! As for the D, I guess I did have to buy something, it was only like 1.99 though at Hobby Lobby. I think Hobby Lobby needs to sponsor me because I mention them in every post! ha! I am up there all the time, even Carter likes going to "Hobby Wobby".
So anyway, I sprayed the D black and used a paint pen to give it a stitched look.
Added a flower and bam that was it!
I have so many scraps of stuff laying around the house, so it was really nice to reuse some of it!
I also love how this can stay up through the summer because it is so bright and cheery. I can't stop making wreaths though, as you can see 3 of the 4 most popular posts are wreaths ------>
LOL So, I'll probably get the itch to make another one before then. ;)
Thanks for stopping by!!
