My guest poster Dru is sharing her beautiful Spring Flower Wreath
Hello Everyone! I’m so excited to be guest posting for Emily. I love her blog and am always learning so much from her. The weather here cannot make up it’s mind, but I’ve decided I want Spring, so I brightened up my front door with a new spring wreath.
I wanted to find something a little different than just a regular round wreath. I discovered this one inch piping at the fabric store and I came up with this idea. In about half an hour I had a flower hanging on my door.
Here’s what I used:
- 3 yards of 1 inch piping
- 1/2 yard of fabric
- gerber daisy or you could use any flower of your choice
- tulle, ribbon, lace, or burlap
- glue gun/glue sticks
- small flowers or additional embellishments (optional)
For the base cut a six inch circle out of heavy cardboard. Use a spray adhesive or brush on liquid glue to the cardboard and cover with a piece of fabric. Cut the excess fabric off around the edge.
Measure and cut five 18″ pieces of piping. Rip your fabric in two inch strips lengthwise. Wrap the fabric around the piping at an angle gluing it into place at the beginning and end. Do the same for the other four pieces. Form a leaf shape with each piping piece and glue into place on your fabric covered cardboard.
Glue each petal together on the sides.
For the center turn the daisy upside down and glue your trim or fabric around it tightly gathering as you go. (You could also do a gathering stitch on the edge of your trim before gluing into place.) Cut the trim into desired width around the flower. Hot glue this center into the middle of the flower. Add any additional flowers or embellishments.
