A few weeks ago, as I took the shamrock down from my front door, I found myself in need of
really wanting a new Spring wreath! My last several wreaths have involved yarn or ribbon wrapping, but this time I wanted something more rustic and natural. I started browsing Pinterest, found some inspiration
, and ended up with this:
Here’s how I made it:
– grapevine wreath
– white felt
– pink fabric
– hot glue and glue gun
Step 1: Wrap one side of your wreath with burlap and glue it in place.
STEP 2: Create rosettes from your felt, fabric, and burlap. Glue a pearl in the center of each one.
To do this, simply cut long strips of the material and fold it in half lengthwise. Begin at one end, rolling it and twisting as you go. Here’s a great photo tutorial if you don’t know how to make them.
STEP 3: Cut leaves from burlap. Arrange flowers and leaves on the side of the wreath you wrapped.
Play around with your design until you get something you like before gluing anything down. For my particular wreath, I used four burlap flowers, four fabric flowers, and five felt flowers, but you can use more or less, depending on your wreath size and the look you want.
STEP 4: Glue everything in place. Add a hanger and display on your door or wall!
Easy-peasy, right? I love the rustic elegance of the burlap combined with the pearls, and the pop of pink makes me smile every time I see it. Not just because it reminds me of Spring, but because it’s excess fabric from one of the pillowcase dresses
I made to send to Uganda with Project Yesu
. When I see it, I remember to pray for the little girl halfway around the world who will be wearing the other part of that fabric.
What do you think? What’s on your door this season?
