Okay, so Marie you were right, it's the stuff to make a rag wreath. If I was having a contest you would have won. Oh, speaking of winning, this will be my 87th post. That means we are coming very close to the big 100. I will be celebrating that one with a giveaway. I'll give you a hint... if you like my Etsy shop, I promise you will love the giveaway!
I had seen rag wreaths, and never tried making one. I wanted something new for my front door this year and this is what I came up with. I'll post step by step...
Wire form for wreath (I used 18")
1 yd ea. of 3 desired materials
Star for embellishing in the end
(Optional, a couple of kitties to help you along)
You need to take a break and get a work in progress picture. Note my little helper. And then you do a little more and leave your project in the middle of the living room floor to take another break and find...
Your other helper thinks it makes a better bed than decoration!
I was pretty pleased with the end result, but thought it need one more touch...
I found the star at Bed Bath and Beyond. Please don't judge the front door, I know it is badly in need of refinishing. And the weather left a lot to be desired today but oh well...what is it we say in the blog world? Hey, I'm just keeping it real!
Once the porch is finished being decorated, I'll give you an updated picture.
