My blog friend, Nancy from Small Things with Love is here today to help me with my move.  She’s sharing one of her inspirational projects.  You may remember that Nancy inspired me with her Crazy Coasters and her Felt Cow Notebook Hugger.  I just love Nancy’s simple but so beautiful crafts!  After seeing her beautiful and simple wreath, I’m guessing you may see another Susan-copies-Nancy project soon.

Hello!  I am Nancy from Small Things with Love where I blog about all things creative.  I am so honored that Susan is allowing me to share a little project with you today.  Although I have yet to meet Susan in person, she is a dear bloggy friend of mine, who I have grown to respect and trust in recent months.  we met in a mentorship class and it has been fun to watch her blog grow–and continue to grow.  Right now she is one busy lady these days, so I hope me posting and sharing here today eases the stress a little bit!

Pinterest has exposed me to a lot of beautiful things, but more than anything I have found a remarkable number of beautiful wreaths there.  I have made just a few wreaths over my crafting ten-year.  A few days ago I was inspired to make another wreath using scraps of fabric I had laying around my craft room.

Supplies:
Foam Wreath Form
Fabric Scraps
Hot Glue Gun
Ribbon

Step 1: Wrapping the wreath.  I cut 2″ strips of fabric to wrap my wreath.  For this part I used an old sheet that had torn and I didn’t have the heart to throw out.  I hot glued to ends down to the back of the wreath and allowed the fabric to fold as I wrapped.

Step 2: Making the flowers
Once again, I did this with just scrap fabric and a hot glue gun.  First, cut the fabric into 1″ strips.  The strips don’t need to be very long.  Then, twist a little ball at the end of the strip.  Glue this down to another scrap of fabric.  Then, wrap and twist the remainder of the strip around the center, apply dabs of hot glue as you go.  As you can see, for some of my flowers I did more of a rolled look for the center.

Finally, hot glue on the flowers and attach a ribbon for hanging the wreath.

This is a simple enough project.  I like that it didn’t take me long to complete and I like the rough look, like it is actually made out of rags.
