I said I would be back with the easiest fabric wreath tutorial for my Fun Fabric Spring Wreath, and so I am! 🙂
This one is SO EASY!! First, let me say, I have either been super busy or just feeling BLAH! And the month of February here on this blog REALLY shows that. Come to find out, my bottle of Female Hormonal Balancing herbs was bad. Like, I let it sit outside in the mail box too long bad. I didn’t notice this until weeks of taking them. And after being on them for over a year it was like I just suddenly stopped. I was a WRECK! BUT…I’m back, new bottle, new smile, clean house, happy hubs and daughter! So I’m back in the blogsphere!
That being said, I missed the Spring Fling announcement!! I was thinking just the other day “where are the spring link parties??”. It wasn’t hard to find! When I saw the dates they would post I went on a crazy craft hunt in my home. I put together my Spring Mantel mostly with stuff I already had. I only had to buy yarn and ladybugs. So, when I tell you this is easy, I mean like I put this together in an hour easy! Well, the wreath part. The pom poms were maybe another half hour! Pom pom tutorial coming soon!!
You will need:
a wreath form, foam would be best
pins or hot glue and a glue gun
Take your fabric and cut it into squares. Mine here are about 3″ x 3″.
Fold your square into a triangle.
And fold it one more time.
Dab on a dot of glue, or use a pin if you have them. I didn’t have pins so glue had to do!
and place it on your wreath.
Now, you’ll notice that this happens! It flips open to the first triangle.
There are two ways to fix this. One, when you layer the next triangle on top it will hold the other down.
But sometimes that doesn’t work. So, I just put a little dot of hot glue on the inside to hold the folds together. When you use pins for this they don’t flap open as much.
Now, repeat that process a few dozen times…
yes….that is a Monchichi!
After a while you will have this!!!
So cute, right? My husband thought of the yellow pom poms and ladybugs. He’s so crafty!! Pom poms are also really easy to make and I will share that tutorial with you a little later. I gotta tell ya, I was really surprised with how fast and easy this was! AND, I pinned (bought pins with the yarn and ladybugs) the pom poms and ladybugs on so that when I’m ready to change up the look a little bit I can. I think some pretty burlap rosettes would look nice on this wreath, don’t you?
And here it is on the mantel. You can see how I pieced the mantel together and hear the sentimental story behind this wreath if you click here! This wreath is made from my beloved nephew Khaleeq’s old sheet.
Well, there you have it!! Happy crafting y’all!
