Ok, this time my wreath is a smashing success. The last one I made was a little lacking. I got this idea from Roeshel at The DIY Show Off. If you haven't seen her site yet you are definitely missing out on something awesome. Her tutorials are great.
I know I have seen this type of wreath before and I knew I didn't want to make the traditional leaf and/or flower wreath. And actually from a distance, mine actually looks like leaves.
I just cut squares that were about 2x2 inches, no I didn't actually measure, just free cut everything. Anyway, I used a wreath from the Dollar Tree. I used the tip of a pencil and wrapped the fabric around it. Put some hot glue on the end and then shoved the fabric into the wreath. Easy Peesy.
I started first with some leaf garland wrapped around the wreath and was then going to add the fabric but, I quickly decided that was not the direction I wanted to go. Off came the garland.
I used mostly used scraps I had around but, I did pick up a few fat quarters from Walmart and of course, the clearance fabric bin. I always look there.
The ribbon is from where else, The Dollar Tree.
We finally have had a nice sunny day here, but it makes my fabric look more peach than orange. Sorry.
