A Scrappy Little Wreath

It's the most WONDERFUL
time of the year.




HELLO, sweet friends!
How are you on this delightful Monday?

Today I have a sweet scrappy wreath to show you.
With the cooler days that November brings this is the perfect project to do
while sitting in front of the fire.
And don't forget to make yourself a cup of tea or coffee :)
We enjoyed some lovely snowfall yesterday
and today we are supposed to get some more.
Ah, how I love the snow!

Before I get into this darling and fun project
I wanted to let you know that Rose Petal Blessings
has a Cyber Monday deal.
Today only you can save 25% on your order of $20.00 or more
Plus, free shipping in the USA.




Now onto the scrappy wreaths. . .


To make this wreath you will need:
fabric
tulle
flat wood wreath
glittery snowflake
pearls and gems
hot glue gun and glue

Here is the wreath before. . .
it's about 14-inches in size.




Cut strips of fabric that are 2-inches wide
and wrap them around the wreath.
Secure the ends with hot glue.






Cut strips of fabric that are 2-inches wide
and 8 1/2-inches long.
Fold in half and keep the fold facing down every time
so that every strip matches.




Tie the strip of fabric in a knot.
Do this with the tulle as well.




I did a strip of white and cream fabric
then a strip of white and cream tulle.




Once your wreath is all tied up
you get to decorate it to your liking.

For the focal point I applied a glittery snowflake 
with a ribbon rosette in the center.




Then I added tulle pom poms.
I simply used tulle trim and rolled it up to create a pom pom.




In the center of my pom poms I added pretty gems.




I also included pearls here and there
to give it the perfect shabby look.




And the beauty of this wreath
is that you can hang it anyway you like.


You can have the embellishments on the left. . . 




On the bottom. . .




On the right. . . 




Or on the top :)




Of course I couldn't make just one wreath {{smiles}}

I made another one with silver and white tones. . .
perfect to hang in your home during the winter season.




This wreath also has tulle pom poms,
pearls, and gems.





And for the focal point 
I used a stunning 3D glitter snowflake.




The possibilities for this wreath are endless
and you can even make one for every season.




I also made some smaller versions
{with a 4-inch wood curtain ring}
meant for hanging on the Christmas tree, using as gift toppers,
or hanging around the home as charming Christmas decor.








You know I love your visits
and I appreciate your sweet comments!

Have a beautiful week!

. . .Love and Hugs. . .

What great ideas....

Vee said...

This is a craft that can go in many directions. It does not look like a wreath to be out in the weather, but how pretty on cabinetry or even a bed's headboard. You are the cleverest!

Debbie said...

Your wreaths are so pretty and feminine, Stephanie! Your work is flawless. I'm so glad to see from your banner that you now have your birch tree tea cup!
Blessing to you-Kim

NanaDiana said...

Very, very cute, Stephanie. I bet your mom will remember the nylon net wreaths from the 50's..that were all made on a wire coat hanger with balls glued on them. Yours remind me of those a bit but much sweeter and softer to look at. I LOVE those little ones, too. Very, very cute!

Have a blessed (and I am sure busy) week- xo Diana

God's Grace Overflows said...

Hugs to you!

Your wreath is very sweet, Stephanie. I do envy you the snow. I hope and hope every year, but it comes so rarely here. We did have frost last night, so perhaps....

Manu said...

These wreath are so cute and chic.

I LOVE a great wreath. I love MANY wreaths! A great friend of mine is making fur wreaths right now; I have a few different ones in my home and I can't seem to get enough of these circles; they are symbolic of so much. I wrote a Christmas post years ago how a wreath looks like a lifesaver to me.....and as Christmas, that is exactly what was thrown out to us: JESUS, our lifesaver. So for me, a wreath has many connotations, and no matter what the lovely design, the circle of life, of eternity lives on. BEAUTIFUL!

Anna said...

Gorgeous ! Gorgeous ! Gorgeous !!!!!!
And so delicate....
Have a exquisite day !

Mrs. Sarah Coller said...

Dear Stephanie your wreath is beautiful. I adore the white one...so elegant but the lavender is just as gorgeous. Love the ornaments too. You have managed to get me in the spirit of things. Thank you. Have a wonderful day. Hugs!

Alex said...

Sooo pretty, Stephanie! I love the two wreaths against the grey corrugated metal wall (is that a barn?) ~ perfect 'Country Living' style.
Isn't the first snow so special? I would like to see it! We have cold and frost but no snow here in England.
Much love!

Still waiting for the first snowfall here. The weather has been such a roller coaster. One day it's freezing, the next day it feels like spring!

Stephanie, I love your scrappy little wreath. Beautiful share. I'm a little behind catching up on blog reading, so glad I didn't miss this.

Linda Walker said...

Stephanie,
I am in love with your large wreaths! I have made similar ones using small curtain rings and tulle but have never tackled the larger size. I usually loop the fabric around the wreath but I really like the way you tied your fabric strips on. Just a bit different and so so pretty!

I'm so late to this party! What a delightful tutorial you have shared! I must save this in my must-do projects. I love it! So pretty and I have lots of fabric that would do far better being seen than hidden away in a dusty box, lol! This would also make a really nice inexpensive gift too... hmm! Thanks for the inspiration Stephanie, always such a sweet joy to visit here with you :)
