I am locked up at home, with potty training and sorts.
Although I love it, I just don't think it fairs well with my flowering bushes and pots.
Because there is no going out for me. I can't risk Isaac peeing on some stores beautiful flooring. I wanted a new wreath so bad that I made do with what I had.
Luckily, my MIL had loaded me up with a stash while we were visiting in Utah.
I wrapped it in white muslin to cover the wreath.
Then I took some wide lace from my MIL and began doing a running stitch by hand.
Next, came a strip of the same white muslin that I used in the beginning. I started by cutting a small notch and then ripping down both sides until I got a two inch strip.
Once it was gathered, I began to roll it into a circle so that it would create a flower. I hand stitched it in the back.
Then off to my button stash(thanks to my MIL for adding to it), and I found these little copper gems to go in the center.
I then placed the flowers where I liked them, and hot glued them down.
I added a black lace bow, and some black ribbon for the hanger.
There you have it. A wreath, made for FREE, that is light and reminds me of spring.
I also love the vintage quality of it.
I hope you can use one or more of these ideas to make something for yourself.
P.S. I have been using the flowers for pins and bows, and they are just adorable. They have such a handmade vintage quality about them.
P.P.S. I linked up to Just a Girl Show and Share Day.
