For this week's Pinning it Down, I took my inspiration from the Domesticated Lady. Her wreath is much cuter than mine, but I used what I had with the exception of the wreath form which my dear daughter picked up for me when she was buying her own Valentine crafty stuff!
I wrapped it in burlap strips after pulling out all the possible fabrics I could use.
Hot glue is a necessity for this project.
After a bit of research and false starts, I decided to use this method of making flowers. My felt comes from a sweater that a friend bought for me and felted, so it's super-thick. After cutting it, you just start rolling it up from the inside out. Then cover the bottom of it with hot glue and stick it to a circle of felt to hold it all together. Super simple and quick, even with thick felt and crummy scissors!
They're very cute!
A few more flowers, maybe some out of pink, would have been nice, but I think the neighbors are just glad the Christmas wreath is finally off the door! Since I was on a roll there, I also took the holly-sprigged tablecloth off the dining room table, replaced it with white (and a burlap runner) and some red and pink dishes.
What did you pin down this week?
