So, my love affair with Pinterest continues with this project. Hubby is always complaining that I have about 2 total fall decorations. It is his running joke that I won't have time to decorate for fall because I have so much stuff. I didn't have anything for fall for my front door so I decided to start there. I had seen this wreath on Pinterest and knew I could probably do something similar.
I started with a foam wreath from Michaels.
I used more remnant fabric that I found over the summer at Joann Fabrics when I made the trip for my necklace organizer.
The fabric was cut into strips. I made some effort to make them similar in size but I didn't worry about it too much because I knew I could cut off excess as long as they were long enough.
I alternated strips of fabric and tied them around the wreath with a double knot. I made sure I pushed them close together as I went so no foam wreath would show through. I ended up not using the cream colored fabric because it was canvas and hard to tie nicely. I used the patterned fabric with a brown after every two of the patterned.
Finally, I added an "M" monogram for some extra color. I painted the M and tied it onto the wreath with the same color of embroidery floss. Brown ribbon helped me hang it from the hook on my front door.
I started with more crafting projects over this past summer and I am loving this wreath! I am so happy with how it turned out and it was really easy! I like that it has some fall colors without being too dark.
