Fall Wreath

Saturday, September 14, 2013

It was my intention to make one of those really full rag wreaths for fall. Until I started tearing strips of fabric and tying then to my pool noodle turned wreath form. It was then that I realized that it was going to take about a million strips of fabric to make it full and fluffy....huh! aint nobody got time for that! I revised my plan  when I saw Lucy's gorgeous burlap and canvas wreath.  Lucy's is much more beautiful, so if you want to see the original stunning version visit Craftberry Bush.

Determined not to spend any money this fall I used things I had on hand. I tore a long strip of  canvas and wrapped it around a pool noodle that I had left over from  this project. Then I started tying strips of burlap, drop cloth canvas, twine and lace to the wreath.

I stopped tying on when it looked full enough and then added dried roses faux hydrangea, berries and wheat.

There you have it, how my raggedy wreath came to be. I think I like it.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be linking up with these with these great parties this week.

  1. I think you should give yourself more credit; your wreath is just as beautiful!!

  2. I love how your wreath turned out! It's so pretty and quaint. Fits right in with the rustic trend going on. You cracked me up with the "ain't nobody got time for that . ." Sometimes we don't realize how involved things are, but in the end, everything works out just fine like yours did.

  3. I have got to get to the fabric store! The wreath and pumpkins are just gorgeous!
    I love the use of the linen and burlap, perfect for fall, and so unique and different.
    Love it!

  4. It's beautiful, Karen! I love the embellishments you added, too. I have got to try one of these rag wreaths. I have plenty of fabric and my bloggy friend, Betsy, just sent me some burlap.

  5. Ohhhh, this wreath is gorgeous. Already pinned.

    Hugs from here

  6. I know it takes a lot of fabric for these rag wreaths. They're such a pretty fall accent and you did a great job on yours.

  7. What a great way to do it and end up with something just as pretty but for much less work. Now I want to make the pumpkins AND a wreath! Guess I would have to go fabric shopping, huh!? So many fun, fun things to make and do!
