Hello all! We had a wonderful camping trip over the last week. So many sights and sounds and sweet memories.
I am glad to get back to the "normalcy" and routine of being home. There is something to be said about not living out of a suitcase and being able to drink milk at a really cold temperature!!
A little project to share with you today. I originally made it to hang on the gate that leads into our garden. However, when it was all done, it was far too pretty to hang outside and now decorates a door in our dining room.
To begin, I "borrowed" one of the kids' pool noodles and shaped it into a circle approximately 14 inches across. I held it in the circular shape using painters tape.
Next, I chose a variety of pink and white prints from my stash of quilting fabrics.
To speed things up, (I'm always trying to do things relatively quickly because my crafting time has to be fit in between making snacks and helping with the latest LEGO project!) I ripped my fabrics into 3 inch wide strips.
I needed lengths of about 8 inches to wrap around the noodle. I secured both ends of the fabric to the noodle using a glue gun at the back of the wreath.
I overlapped each strip by about 1" and continued around the circle.
I was tempted to leave the wreath just like this because the mix of fabrics were just so pretty, but it DID need something else.
Out of my stash came these gorgeous silk flowers. I had fallen in love with them earlier in the month while on a visit to Michaels. They were drastically marked down, so I bought several.
Lucky for me they were the perfect way to finish off this wreath.
And here is the finished product:
My daughter has already requested one to hang on her bedroom door. I think I may oblige her. This has been one of the quickest and easiest crafts I have done in a long time!
Thanks for all of your comments .
I am so thankful that so many people care about what I have to share!
Hugs to all,
