We had a yard sale last weekend and a couple straw wreaths were left. (They were donated by a friend.) So instead of donating them at the end of the sale, I decided to make some simple wreaths for our home.
This one is my first attempt and I like it. It's different and used up some fabric from my scrap basket.
My plan was to make a wreath with strips of fabric like this one. Then I saw these leftover yellow ruffles. They used to be on some giant square pillow shams that I thrifted and cut up for another project. I saved the ruffles because I love the color and print and well, I can't bear to throw something away that could be used for something else!
That something else turned out to be this wreath.
to finish off the center of the flower.
This was super easy-- took longer to post about the wreath than to actually make it. ;-)
I have this hanging in a sunny location outside so, yes, it will fade with time. The great thing is that by removing the pins, it'll be super simple to update with something else.
