I had been thinking since I took the Christmas wreath down some time ago, that I really wanted something on the front door. I wanted a wreath but what kind I was unsure of until I saw this on another blog. So off to the craft store I went for the supplies.
I needed fabric, that was number one. I wanted something summery and festive. My original plan was to go with red, white and blue, but that didn't pan out when I couldn't find those colors in Walmart's fabric section. So I went with some summery Caribbean sea colors. I bought the fabric in a bundle, and bought two to be on the safe side of having enough to cover a wreath form. The directions called for a 12 inch form, but of course when I got to the store I couldn't remember reading a size anywhere and ended up buying a 18 inch form. Good thing I got that extra fabric.
The fabric got cut into 1 inch wide by 6 inch long pieces. My cuts were rough, I just eyeballed them. From there you just tied them to the form, I double knotted them to keep them from falling off. It took about 2 hours from start to finish, cutting and tying. I was pretty pleased with the look of it when all was said and done.
