Pinning it Down #4

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?


  1. Oh it's lovely! Those roses came out gorgeous.

  2. This turned out really, really cute. I love it -- the roses especially.

  3. Oh, cute! That is such a great wreath for this time of year.

  4. Like this! Learning to felt is one of my goals this year.

  5. So elegant! I love it. I just switch my christmas table runner for a Valentine's one! :)

  6. That is adorable! I haven't done anything that I've pinned! I guess I should work on that!


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
