Home Made Decorative Wreaths

Home Made Decorative Wreaths January 16, 20169 Comments

Every once in a while I get the creative bug and want to do some arts and crafts.  This time, I was going to make some wreaths.  One for Christmas, and one for every day to match my house colors.  So, I took myself to the Hobby store then to Walmart since they of course are a million times cheaper for most items.  I gathered enough to do two types of wreaths but quickly learned that I do not have the same patience as I did when I was younger.

Here’s the style of wreath  on making for the teal wreath.  This is a wreath I made back in I believe middle school.  I also believe it’s the best one I’ve made yet.  Something about the young creative mind.

Once I decided not to use the above method for the teal wreath, I had to find another way.  So, I grabbed the wired wreath and had to think a bit.  I ended up cutting the teal fabric into about 8″ x 1″ strips then tying them in double knots around the wire alternating sides.  I ended up with ends of these strips sticking out everywhere so I decided to pin them to the back of the wreath.

Here’s how the wreath turned out.  I added the ribbon and flower as an extra touch.  I’m quite happy with how the wreath turned out but of course ended up returning the extra supplies since I didn’t make as many wreathes as I had planned on making.
