I posted a picture of a wreath a while back that is made from strips of fabric. It was so adorable, and I knew I needed one for the upcoming baby shower I'm helping to host. So yesterday I set out on my misson.
Here is what you need:
4 different types of fabric at 1/2 yd a piece
a roll of ribbon
a straw wreath ( i did 18")
something to hang from the middle
(I know I show 5 fabrics, but I only used 4..)
OK, so cut the fabric in 2" strips by 18", which is the width of your 1/2 yard piece. Once you cut up the fabric simply tie them around the wreath by knotting them, repeat a few hundred times and
hang your letter from the center with ribbon
I've seen these done up for christmas and halloween. The total project cost around $15.00..
fabric $8.00 (walmart had a yard for $1.50 sale)
*Oooh and P.S. Midland people, there is this fabric store called Easie's in between Industrial and Front Street that has the BEST designer fabrics for insane prices. Let me know if you want the address.. lots of cute kiddie fabric, outdoor fabric, upholstry fabric.. I freaked when I went in there the first time!
