I finished my first wreath ever. And I love it dearly.
This is not meant to be a tutorial, but a “Yippee! Look at this, Mom, Grandma, sister, and anyone else who cares!”
I expected this project to take a while, but it didn’t at all. Two nights. Could have been one long one if I’d wanted.
Total cost was less than ten dollars. I used an 18″ four-ring (?) wire wreath form, three yards of burlap, two pieces of felt, and some leftover fabric from these pillows.
Above is my first shot of the project. Burlap makes quite a mess, but I didn’t mind. It was so relaxing to just sit there cutting up strips of burlap and listening to classical music. I wasn’t quite sure if I was supposed to tie the strips once or twice around the wire, but twice sounded like way too much effort so I went with one and was happy.
Back in December, I tried felt flowers for the first time and was pleasantly surprised at how easy they were. It didn’t take long to make these, and I only used the kind that I liked the best.
Actually, the only mildly creative part of this whole thing was using the leftover fabric to make a flower. I really loved the fabric and thought the colors would go nice with the felt so I went for it. It worked just fine, I didn’t change anything from what I did with the felt.
And did I say how much I love it?
I’m not going to add links to other tutorials for the burlap wreath or felt flowers because I didn’t use any specific one and didn’t find any of them especially helpful. I normally find that just searching through several pinterest links will give you a good idea of what you need to do.
Thanks for letting me share my first wreath!!
