You may have noticed during your tour of my shop yesterday
a few festive wreaths.
They are very simple to make, but just take a bit of time and patience.
I used a styrofoam wreath form for both.
I first wrapped them with neutral fabric so the back would be pretty.
Then I cut out a bazillion and one red felt circles.
I folded each circle in quarters and pinned them in
one by one.
Yes, it took a while.
And yes, my pointy finger was quite sore afterward.
Lastly I fastened some pretty vintage lace in the back
so she could hang just right.
I did the same thing with the other wreath.
But this time I used a bazillion and one dictionary pages
cut into a flower shape.
Cut, fold, pin, . . .
I always make sure I like what I make for the shop enough so that if it doesn't sell, I would enjoy having it in my home.
I really like how this one looks over the piano.
Maybe I'll make another one with vintage sheet music.
After my pointy finger heals.
Oh, and if you decide to tackle one of these bad boys,
I suggest you do not pin while you're in bed . . .
