As I talked about on Monday Madness, I’ve been looking to make a new wreath for my door. Anyone who knows me knows that I love a good wreath and I am not above spending some time to get exactly what I want – example: this deco-mesh carrot wreath that I made this past Easter.
Anyway, I was looking for something burlap-y, something spring-y, something eas-y, and something somewhat unique-y, not necessarily in that order. Of course, I did some research – I could literally spend a million dollars on Etsy on any given day. I loved a lot of the wreaths that are out there – burlap is so popular right now – but I decided to combine a couple of styles and come up with something probably not new.. but at least new to me!
And, here she is!
This was actually pretty easy to do, but was a bit time consuming, as the ruffles are individually glued on to the wreath, but I’m really happy with how it came out. The felt flowers are the only part that requires sewing and you can find a tutorial for how to make them here, and a free flower template here. I am a little obsessed with felt flowers right now – you may remember that I made them for the first time to put on some throw pillows I recently made. Needless to say, I’ve been looking for anything and everything to put felt flowers on ever since!
Although it looks like Spring outside, it doesn’t actually feel like spring outside. I’m kind of hoping that if I just think Spring thoughts, and decorate as though it’s already here, the rest will follow. A girl can hope, no?
You can find a tutorial for this project here!
