I wanted to make something simple to hang above my mantle. Since last year I’ve been collecting blue items to decorate my beach inspired mantle. (makes me feel @ home!) This little wreath although understated fit the bill. Here is how I did it.
- 12 inch wreath form
- 1/2 yard of burlap (you probably won’t even use that much)
- Fabric (I used muslin and a blue quilter’s fabric)
- Hot glue
- Hot glue gun
Cut the burlap into about 2 inch wide strips and wrap around the wreath form. Hot glue to secure the burlap once the wreath has been covered.
I made small fabric rosettes by cutting 12 x 2 inch strips of the fabric of my choice. I then folded the fabric into a tube and started to roll up. Roll tighter at the begining then twist and loosen the fabric as you get to the outer edge of the rose. Hot glue the rose close. Then place the rose on the wreath whereever you like. You can add as many roses, buttons, bows, etc. as you would like. I wanted to keep mine simple.
I added a cream ribbon so I could hang it from my mirror.
There you go! A super simple and quick wreath that will add a pop of color to your room.
