If this post looks familiar, it’s because it is a repeat of one I did at this time last year.
Yep, this little wreath made a bit of a splash in the cyber world, and I was very humbled by the response that it got.
It is by far one of my most highly viewed projects and one of my personal faves. In fact, I just hung this little lovely on my front door once again to welcome September in.
Soooo….if you don’t mind a good repeat, here’s the original post I did on my fall wreath:
The kids are back in school–woo hoo!! It was definitely a weird type of week for me. Weird but good. This year ALL of my kiddos are in elementary school. We have a 5th grader, 4th grader, 2nd grader, and two that just started kindergarten. I am not used to having a quiet house, so it’s taking some getting used to. My little guys are in afternoon kindergarten, so I’m footloose and fancy free for a few hours every weekday now. It’s amazing how much I can get done without any little ones around! One of the many little projects I tackled this week was this yarn-wrapped fall wreath.
I haven’t made a wreath in awhile, so I wanted something fall-ish to spruce up my front door.
This orange yarn with fall colored accents are just the ticket.
To make it, I simply wrapped a foam wreath form completely with yarn.
I made a variety of felt roses, flowers, and green leaves that I thought would complement it.
In addition, I also made some fabric covered buttons and regular buttons and glued those on as well.
To add a finishing touch, I ruffled three pieces of this brown and white fabric and layered them at one end.
