I am a huge fan of Jen @ Tatertots and Jello! Last week I was looking for ideas for my front door wreath and I came across her tutorial for a Burlap Wreath on her site.
Isn't it adorable? I decided I had to make one too, but mine turned out a little bit differently.
I used the burlap circles like she did, but was way too lazy to cut out that many circles! I stitched my circles together and glued a small button in the middle. And since it is spring I thought I would add some fabric flowers. I think they are super cute and really easy to make. First start with a strip of fabric.
Mine ranged from 3" to 6" long and approximately 1" to 1 1/2" long. Take a needle and thread and sew the bottom edge, I like my pleats smaller, I think the middle of the flower looks cleaner.
After you have sewed all the way across the bottom, pull the needle tight to make a semi-circle.
Join the 2 edges and sew them together. This is what mine looked like, I know my thread doesn't really match but I kinda like it.
Next I cut the petals into my flowers, I made 5 cuts. This is the finished product.
I made 16 flowers in varying sizes and fabrics for my wreath and hot glued them on. Next I added the twine to the back of my wreath and added my welcome saying.
The only thing I had to buy for this project was the wreath ($3.50 from WalMart) I had everything else, this is a steal! Thanks to Jen for the inspiration!
