Okay so I don't know about all of you but I love to just get money as gifts!! That way I can go to my favorite store and load up on craft supplies!!! Can you guess the store??? That's right, Hobby Lobby! The last two days I have gone a little crazy but I got some awesome deals and I now have quite a few projects lined up to make! I decided to make this winter wreath first.
The month of January is kind of in-between holidays so I have a hard time deciding on a wreath for my door. I got the perfect inspiration from this wreath here! Doesn't it just look like winter? My problem is that we have zero trees to get twigs from. So, good old Hobby Lobby has cute pre-made twig wreaths and then I just added a little color!!
So I started off with this Wreath.
I then added a few silver sparkly twigs that Hobby Lobby had on sale! It just added a little Jazz!
Next start making the flowers!! The white flower I used glittery felt and made it just how I did on this post for my fall wreath. The blue and grey flowers I followed these steps...
For the Blue one, cut 7 circles out of felt. Place one down and put a circle of hot glue in the middle. Fold 4 of them in half and then in half again and glue them down like this.
Next, put a dot of hot glue in the middle of that and fold the last 2 circles the same way. Press the tips of them into the center like this.
Fluff it up a little and Tada!! It should look like this!
For the grey flower I cut a strip of grey felt and then folded it over and stitched a running stitch along the edge. Next, cut small slits all along the fold. Like this.
Now pull the thread so that it gathers and glue it around another small circle of felt. Overlap each layer so that the thread doesn't show.
It should look like this one below!
Last of all hot glue all of the flowers to the wreath! I added and few plastic snowflakes that I had laying around too! Glue some ribbon on the back and hang it up! I love how it turned out! Exactly how I envisioned! XOXO
