new wreath~

So I was up in my sewing room messing the other night, when I should have been sewing; my etsy store is bare! Anyway....I was messing..... I came up with a new wreath for the back door!


I had some scrap fabric and a wreath form. Super easy to make, it's only 3 strips of fabric 4" x 70" long and a foam wreath form.  You wrap one strip around the wreath and hot glue.  Then run a ruffle stitch along the other two strips, lay your ruffles around the wreath and glue them. Little secret....I didn't glue any of it I used straight pins, yup....I pinned it all.  If I want to take it apart, I can; not sure if I want to tho, it's kind of cute!

I had some smaller pieces of my gingham fabric ( I just love gingham) and made some cute little flowers for my wreath!  Now I just need to get it on my door!

Hope you had a wonderful day! Remember...... if you haven't become a follower, come and join the fun. Tuesday, May 3rd, I am going to have a fun giveaway that includes lemons and gingham!

Take care.....Jodi

This is super cute and immediately made me wonder if I had some leftover fabric to make one of my own. Very nice.

This is so cute and sweet!
I am starting my own linky party ToDaY!
It's the first one. I would love it if you would participate! It's called $10 Tuesdays and it's for things that cost less than $10 and take 20-30 mins (ish) to complete. I love inexpensive and quick projects and I'm guessing others will too ;) Thanks so much for considering.

I love that wreath! It is SO cute, and it reminds me of some of the ruffly blouses I used to have, before I (quite literally) wore holes in them! You have inspired me so much, that I think I'm going to make one of these for MY door. Thanks!!
