Red Hot Wreath

If you’re not into bold colors or prints, I apologize now. The wreath I just made is definitely not for the faint of heart.

See what I mean? A bold red and white print coupled with bright red felt roses. How’d I make it? Let me show you…

I started out with a plain straw wreath form (14″). A foam wreath form would work too.

Taking some vintage fabric, I cut long lengths of it, @5-6″ wide. Folding one edge in as I went, I wrapped it around the wreath form until it was completely covered. I hot glued the ends to hold in place.

Using the same method for making felt roses I used here, I made 9 large red blooms and adhered them to one side of my wreath. That’s it! The results? Well, you’ll either like it or hate it. I’m hoping for like it, but we’ll see.

One thing’s for sure though–any front door with this hanging on it would be impossible to miss!
