Well, apparently I’m on a bit of a wreath kick again. They really are one of my most favorite things to make.
This time around I went for a grapevine one, just to mix things up.
It is adorned with these little flowers I made from a cute orange & white houndstooth print fabric.
Across the top I formed the word “Gather” using scrabble tiles. They are mounted on a rectangle of burlap, which I let peek out around the edges. The burlap is on another rectangle of felt for a little stability. Everything is hot glued onto the grapevine.
I used just a basic gold ribbon for hanging.
All in all, a quick little project that turned out sorta cute.
Blessings to all,
I’ve been a little MIA lately, but it’s all been for a good reason.
School started and I’ve been in PTO mom mode, dealing with beginning of the school year craziness and preparing for our big yearly fundraiser coming up in several weeks.
This is how I deal with stress:
I make stuff. No surprise, eh?
I also take lengthy walks, pray for wisdom and sanity, drink too much coffee, and eat comfort foods.
But I digress. About the wreath…
Again I went with a yarn-wrapped style. This time I picked out a brown with neutral flecks of color in it.
For the flowers I used different neutrals as well, then added in a little pop of pink. IF I had some coral-y orange I may have thrown in a bit of that too for interest. I placed a rectangle of burlap underneath them all, leaving a bit to peek out near the middle. A couple of buttons were used for accents. To make this more interesting, I used a buttery light yellow yarn and criss-crossed it around the portion of wreath not covered by flowers and such.
And since I hadn’t busted out my trusty chalkboard for pictures in awhile, I thought this would be a good shot.
Happy Fall Y’all!
