This past weekend I had the chance to create a festive wreath for our front door.
I had some left over orange fabric from the Halloween pillowcase dress last year.
So I took my fabric and cut it in 3 inch strips, and wrapped it tightly around a foam wreath form and pinned it from the back. It was easy! The chalkboard owl I found at Target by the dollar bins for $2.50. I thought he was cute! The bow is from Michael’s.
I thought the wreath was a little plain so I cut smaller 1.5 inch strips of fabric and folded them in half and just made a straight stitch down the middle just by hand with a needle and thread. It actually goes pretty fast. Then just pin your ruffles to the wreath. I think there’s about three separate ruffle pieces, but once your pin it down you really can’t tell.
I think the ruffle added some nice interest,,,don’t you?
Here it is on our front door 🙂
What do you think? I’m not sure if I’m even going to decorate inside for Halloween this year since I’m so sick of moving boxes and just unpacked 🙂
