Y’all should know that I love making wreaths.
Plus I also enjoy sewing AND yard sale shopping for cool vintage finds.
This wreath is a happy marriage of all those things put together!
I took a wide burlap ribbon and threaded it onto a wire wreath frame.
(Please don’t ask me to do a tutorial on it, for me it’s just trial and error. Can’t say I make the greatest ones anyway…)
Then I added a touch of red burlap ribbon for a little color.
Next came the fun part for me. I added things like old button cards, thimbles, and sewing charms from a clearance item at Michael’s.
Also, some wooden spools of thread, both empty and full.
Most of these things came from yard sale box lots, even the cool stand that I have this displayed on.
I have no idea what this is officially called, but it is a ruler on a tripod stand with an arm that tilts forward with hem lengths displayed on it. It is perfect for setting my wreath on.
This was a creative way to use up and display some of those vintage sewing notions I’d accumulated.
All in all, this is different than any other wreath I’ve ever made, but I personally love it!
