Happy Labor Day! I have been doing some cleaning, reorganizing, and of course… buying. There is a going out of business sale at a local fabric store and I just had to stop in, TWICE! There were really great deals on zippers and I picked up a ton of upholstery fabric samples. Also, I bought possibly too much red felt so I decided to get started on a project.
These dies are My Favorite Things POINSETTIA. I have used this set before on several other projects. I highly recommend them! They work well for flowers for any occasion, not just Christmas!
During my cleanup I discovered a couple of wreaths I didn’t remember wrapping. Here’s the one I picked. It is a super chunky white yarn. I have started exclusively using straw wreaths and chunky yarn to wrap my wreaths. This wreath measures 8″.
Now here’s the fun part if you’d like to follow along. All you will need is:
- The My Favorite Things POINSETTIA die set
- One 8″ straw wreath (wrap in yarn or ribbon)
- 30 Pins
- 5 sheets of quality felt
It looks pretty cool with just the three, so you may get the urge to stop here. I decided to keep going. The size of your wreath will of course determine how many flowers you will ultimately need. Be sure to adjust your supplies accordingly. Here is my final result!
So my holiday project is complete. I hope you will give it a try. If you have any suggestions on what I can do with my remaining mountain of red felt, drop a comment 😉
Halloween. I’m not sure how to feel about it now as an adult. The past 5 years we have had 2 trick or treaters. Total. Two! And last year we had the full size candy bars and everything. No one came. Or maybe we just didn’t notice them… our doorbell was and still is broken.
