Anyone remember my Halloween wreath? It was cheap, easy and repurpose-able. Ring a bell?
Well, this week I went ahead with that repurposing. Into a Winter wreath, in fact.
When I made my Halloween wreath, I purposefully made it to be easily repurposed (say that 10 times fast). Go to the original post to read the details. The short story is that I wrapped a $1 wreath with black & white fabric and then attached the orange bow with a clip (versus glue) for easy removal.
To make my Winter wreath, I removed the bow, netting and spooky sign and was left with just the black & white wrapped wreath.
Using various sized circles of felt and flannel in shades of black, gray and turquoise, I created 5 easy flowers. Simply cut 3 different sized circles for each flowers and stitch them together with a coordinating button. I won't lie to you and say I'm a great seamstress, but I can sew on a button. And, if you, too, can sew on a button, you can do this!
(Or, just hot glue the pieces together. Whatever you find to be easier. You know I'm a very relaxed crafter.)
After I whipped up my flowers and safety-pinned them to the wreath (you know, for easy removal after Winter), I decided my wreath needed a little something more. So, I wrapped the circle with two belts from sweaters I haven't worn in ages.
Flannel and sweater ties? This certainly is a wintry wreath!
Don't you love when projects go from season to season??
What do you hang on your front door after Christmas? Inquiring minds (ahem, that would be mine) are dying to know!
