Rosette Spring Wreath


First, let me mention to all you Mommies out there, ya know how we always end up with that pile of old baby clothes that has stains on it and you feel bad donating them because of it.  WELL……you can cut them up and create sweet sentimental pieces of art for your house.  Case in point, my NEW Spring Wreath.  See all those pretty little rosettes.  They are each made from pieces of Alie’s old clothes. 

Click here for my fabric rosette tutorial!!  You can kinda tell it’s all cotton play clothes.  Aren’t those the clothes that usually get stained so bad, there isn’t much hope for them….until now. 


Now, have you seen the ADORABLE Spring Wreath from Myra with The Casabella Project?  I LOVE it.  Now, I didn’t have a wooden sign to recreate it, so I used some cut up a cereal box, some scrapbook paper and made one.  I used letter stickers for S-P-R-I-N-G. 

I cut out that cute little bird from scrapbook paper too. 

I really love that little yellow circle heart I made.  It is yellow construction paper and the heart is a rub on transfer.  BUT I just didn’t like how it looked on the sign.  SO…I made this circle heart from scrapbook paper and different rub on transfer.
Much better right? 

Even after adding all the rosettes, it seemed like something was missing. 

My Sisters-In-Law, Teresa with Get Nestled In and Emily with DecorChick! gave me a few inspirational ideas.  I came up with this. 
I wrapped it in white tulle.  What do you think?  I really like it but it still needs something!  Funny story about the tulle.  After I had done this and went to grab my phone to take a pic and send to Teresa and Emily to see what they thought, I actually had a text from Teresa that said “maybe wrap it in tulle?”  HA!! How’s that for “Great Minds Think Alike?”  My hubby suggested that I trace the spring letters to bring them out a little.  They are kinda washed away, aren’t they?

 I traced the letters with a turquoise marker and even added a little magenta and green coloring to the letters themselves.  Better huh?  Sometimes them hubby’s know what they’re talking about….sometimes! 
 OK, so it’s done.  I think?  Does it need anything else?  What do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
p.s. I had to add that while I was constructing my spring sign I was browsing around Kelly’s blog Running With Glitter and I saw her cute header that said ” I <3 Spring” and I actually changed my plans and made my sign say ” I <3 Spring” as well. Thanks for the inspiration, Kelly!!

  1. This is such a sweet way of keeping some baby clothes, the flowers look so cute. I'm using my boys clothes to make a quilt / blanket, never thought of using them for anything else!

  2. I just found your blog and am your newest follower. This wreath darling!! Thanks so much for sharing your amazing talents with all of us in blog land. You have left me totally inspired.

  3. This is SOOO pretty! I love how you used old baby clothes to make it sentimental! I stopped by to follow from CBPH, but I was already following!:) I would love it if you would link this up to my new blog link up party @http://www.homemakerinheels.com/2011/04/inspire-me-monday-week-1-is-here-come.htmlHave a fantastic week! :)Crysta

  4. I always love fabric roses, but I really love the story of using your daughter's clothes to make them. The nice thing about girls is they wear so many pretty colors so you got to make this in all the wonderful spring colors. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Just read it and went gosh, I know why I was poor in the debate class. I have witnessed and greatly enjoyed the first act of everything which Wagner created, but the effect on me has always been so powerful that one act was quite sufficient; whenever I have witnessed two acts I have gone away physically exhausted; and whenever I have ventured an entire opera the result has been the next thing to suicide.
