Fabric Wreath

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.


  1. Looks so nice and welcoming on your front door!

  2. And it looks even nicer in person! Really pretty and flutters nicely in the breeze.
