I made this yesterday and I couldn’t WAIT to share it with you! I didn’t take pictures of it step by step like I would a “real” tutorial, but I’ll tell you how I made it so that you can easily make your own!
Here was my old fall wreath:
Time for a new one!
First, let me show you my inspiration:
Where did I find it? Pinterest, of course. A girl was selling them on Etsy and I thought, “hey! I could make that!”
(Isn’t that the crafter’s mantra?)
So, I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and I bought a metal wreath like this:
(In the floral section. Less than $3. I used a 40% off coupon and got it for even less.)
I walked over to the fabric section for ideas and I found a yard of orange felt in the remnant section! Score! I really recommend felt because it gives a nice, plush look and it won’t fray. The burlap in the above picture will eventually look really shabby. If you don’t want that, then you either need to pick a cotton and cut it with pinking shears or pick a non-fray fabric.
(Fabric? Less than $3.)
It took a little less than a yard of the felt for me, so if you pick a regular fabric, plan to use a whole yard or a little more, depending on how full you want yours to be.
Then, I cut my fabric into strips approximately 1.5 x 6 inches. You can also decide how you shaggy you want yours and adjust from there.
So, does anyone remember making the rag flip flops in high school?
Start tying the strips to the four rings until completely covered.
Add a bow if desired.
(Ribbon? I had on hand, but Hobby Lobby’s ribbon is 1/2 off this week!)
I know. It’s so easy!
I’m thinking about making a beautiful red one for Christmas!
