It’s hard for me to believe it’s really almost FALL! But school’s officially started, and I’m beginning to realize fall is right around the corner.
I wanted to make a wreath that didn’t scream “Fall”, but gave some subtle hints towards it. Here’s what I came up with:
Here’s how I made it…and you could easily make one too!
First, I started with a wreath form from the Dollar Store. I cut strips of burlap (leftover from last fall’s wreath)
Then I got to work on the “flowers”. I made this kind of flower when I made my gray & white pouf pillow, and also when I made my graphic blue pillow and they’re really fun to make! All you have to do is cut a bunch of circles out of fabric (don’t worry about making them perfect circle shapes…it doesn’t matter):
The brown fabric was leftover from my stenciled and re-upholstered chairs. The yellow was fabric leftover from my Target napkins which also made my bathroom plywood art. The blue was cut from an old shirt that doesn’t fit anymore, and the orange and beige fabrics were from the 50% off remnants section at JoAnns (does anyone else make a beeline to the remnants section when they go to that store?!)
So, it really only cost me about $2! How’s that for thrifty?!
I love my new wreath!
I’m loving the pop of colors, but I’m also loving how it doesn’t scream FALL!
