WREATHS (fabric & beads)


BLUE WREATH


BLUE WREATH DEATAILS UP CLOSE.


SMALL BLUE WREATH


LARGE PINK WREATH WITH BEADS & ROSETTES

Making these wreaths is so rewarding ... each one is so unique ..The fun all starts with the decorating . I use many different types of beads and flowers , No two will ever be alike . I have also made different sizes and shapes ... I had a request for a heart shaped one and it came out just beautiful. 


Here are the instructions I used to make this wreath:
Things You'll Need:
12" or 14" or any shape you like to use  Styrofoam
3 yards of fabric of your color choices ( light fabric works best. I have done some for weddings in the veil fabric and they come out looking like you wouldn`t believe )
Pencil or screwdriver
Pinking shears
Elmer's glue
Bow , Florette's,beads (optional)

1.With pinking shears, cut fabric into 3-inch squares.
 
2.Wrap fabric around pencil or screwdriver with right side of fabric facing pencil or screwdriver , add a little bit of Elmer's glue .
 
3.Push fabric into wreath and pull out pencil or screwdriver, leaving fabric in wreath.
 
4.Attach bow and decorate with Florette's and beads  if desired and hang on door to display.
