Another great crafting night with my sister! We decided to make Fall Wreaths,YAY!
I pretty much had all the materials except the wreath. I did also buy one patterned Fat Quarter. So this project literally only cost me $5. I used my coupon at Michael's and got my wreath for $3.69 and then I purchased a $1.39 fat quarter and that is it, my friends. This is why I say hang on to your scrap fabric. Hoard those scraps by golly, you just never know when it will come in handy.
This is the wreath I purchased from Michael's
Please forgive my photo's. I forgot to bring my camera to my sister's house.
I originally wanted to wrap the wreath in burlap. But then I thought well any brown fabric would work. So I already had this fabric. I cut it into long pieces and began wrapping it and hot gluing it to the wreath.
Then I made flowers. The patterned one is the fabric I bought. I loved the colors. I had a tiny bit of burlap left over from another project, and I had some brown satiny type fabric for the big layered flower. Yes sorry, it looks blue because of the flash on my camera phone, but its really brown.
It took a while to make the flowers, and at the last minute I made one more flower and stuck it on there.
But I love the colors of the wreath. Not sure about the way I positioned it all on there. But I am quite proud that it costs me so hardly anything to make
The sun was so bright yesterday, and therefore the brown material looks lighter than it is. But the other colors of the flowers are pretty close to their real colors. I love it anyhow, flaws in all.
Thanks for tuning in! Until next time...
