Change of pace

So I told you that I needed a break from Christmas, so that is just what I did.  I took a quick look around my craft room and spied a stash of wreaths so I decided to make just a few of the non-Christmas variety. 

I started with a few of these:

I dug out some scaps of burlap, osenberg and one thrift store skirt that I bought a while back.  This skirt was cute (in a 13 year old girl kind of way) but I bought it for the fabric and the cute fabric flowers already on it.

I tore up the skirt into strips like this:

Then I got busy wrapping that ugly wreath just tucking and gluing using This stuff:
You could also use a glue gun.

When I finished wrapping I glued the fabric flowers from the skirt onto the wreath.  I don't really decorate the house for Valentine's Day but I thought this would be cute on my front door as a Valentine's wreath.

Next up was the scrap Osenberg.

I love these old clip-on earings as buttons!

I also had some left over burlap from these cute little trees so I made one last wreath.

I did have just a tiny bit of burlap left after making this wreath so I'll show you what I did with it next time.

Have a great week!
