This is the picture that was sent to me.
Jamie from Dear Lillie is constantly changing this wreath to coordinate with her seasonal decor.
You must check out her blog here and see the many different looks this wreath has had.
She has such a beautiful home and I adore her decorating style.
Here's my version with a little holiday greenery.
To make this wreath I started off with a 10" wood embroidery hoop and a drop cloth.
I separated the wood rings because I will only be using
the outer wood ring.
I also removed the screw for now.
Next, I cut two loonnnggg strips of drop cloth fabric.
One strip was 5" wide and the other was 3" wide.
I laid the 3" wide strip on top of the 5" wide strip
then I sewed two seams, the length of the strips,
with enough room to slide the embroidery hoop through the middle of the seams.
Then I began to feed the wood hoop through the seams
until all of the fabric was around the hoop.
Lastly, I screwed the screw back into place to close the hoop
and I just straigthened and adjusted the fabric around it.
This is the back
I decided to make a bow out of the drop cloth just to add a little something.
It doesn't look exactly like the Dear Lillie wreath, but I think it turned out pretty.
I also like how versatile this wreath is.
It can be hung without the bow for a simple look
or it can be decorated differently for each season.
This wreath could be made with burlap, denim or just about any fabric you want to use.
Each ruffle could even be a different fabric.
You could also use different size hoops to make smaller or larger wreaths.
This wreath is available in my Etsy shop here and I would welcome custom orders.
What are your thoughts?
What fabric would you use?
I have a totally different style wreath made from drop cloth fabric you can look at here
and even some cute little pumpkins made from drop cloth fabric you can look at here.
Thanks for sharing some of your time with me today and Happy Fall!
'til next time,
