Valentine’s Day Wreath

 

Yesterday I filled you all in on my newest crafting obsession, fabric flowers. If you need tutorial on those click here. Today I am going to show you where all those fabric flowers are now taking up residence. For starters, I would like to point out that my decorating budget is, well…pretty much nothing. So to get my house Valentine’s ready I had to be creative, using what I already have on hand. Being a crafty lady and all means that there is quite a bit lying around. One of the decorations on my to do list was a wreath. Because I am using what I have, I took apart an old wreath (I never liked it very much anyways).

 

 

 

I acquired my fabric remnants from my mother-in-law’s sewing pile. She was cleaning out her sewing room and said we could take anything in the buckets. This was years ago. I didn’t know what I was going to do with them, but I don’t turn down free stuff and neither should you!

      Thanks! That fall wreath was pretty sad. This one turned out much better. You win some, you lose some.

      I got very lucky. My mother-in-law is a quilter and was a home ec/sewing teacher for years and years. Fabric remnants are pretty common around here.

      Thank you! That was a happy accident. I love when a bunch of random supplies and a loose idea come together so nicely.

    I love this wreath. If I want to go out and buy fabric to make one, how much fabric should I get… to make this valentines one for example

      I just used fabric scraps. It really didn’t take much. I wish I could give you a more exact answer. Sorry.
