As the subject line states, I never really have the chance to dedicate time to crafting or DIYing anymore. Between work, running a household, playing with and raising our daughter… I’m happy to sleep. Ha! This weekend when I knew I had one extra day to get things done, I made time to finish a door wreath that was supposed to go up for spring through summer. Oops.
First, I started with a straw wreath from Hobby Lobby. I picked a medium size.
Then, I bought a roll of burlap ribbon and hot glued it down around some edges as I wrapped it around the wreath.
After that, I took a wooden letter “H” that I also bought from Hobby Lobby and glued it to the side that I preferred for it to appear on.
I made my fabric flowers next. Here is a tutorial to show you how. I promise I am the worst example to follow. So watch this video or find someone else on YouTube to learn from!
I arranged and rearranged the flowers until I was happy with the outcome.
(I bought fabric sample packs from Wal-Mart for around $3 each.)
I hot glued the flowers down and cut a strip for the hanger at the top.
Here was the outcome:
In this picture I actually had one more flower to add, but I didn’t think it turned out too shabby! The floral prints are blues and greens. Then I picked a green pattern and white ribbon for the other flowers.
