My thanks to SUO Challenges and Stampin’ Royalty for choosing this wreath as the SUO Top 3 and a Goddess Pick!! All the projects were stunning and I am thrilled to be chosen!
Sing along with me! Deck the Halls with fabric and ribbon, fa la la la la, la la la la!! Or, just use Deck the Halls fabric and Seam Binding ribbon to make something fabulous! Conveniently enough, there are three challenges this week which want you to use fabric or ribbon. The first is the SUO Challenge #4 which asks you to use Fabric or Waffle Paper on your project. The second is from Stampin’ Royalty with the theme Ribbons, Ribbons, Ribbons. Last is WT293 (Ways to Use It) over at Splitcoaststampers. Ever since seeing the new fabric offering from Stampin’ Up, I have had the idea of a wreath spinning around in my head. You must understand that this is significant since I don’t really sew! My mother is a quilter and makes the most beautiful things but…yes, I don’t really sew. That meant my wreath had to be a no-sew project. I had a pretty good idea of what to do for the wreath itself but when I saw these rosette flowers created by Betty at Kitty Stamp, I knew this was the perfect embellishment. I have to make sure that I give credit to my mom. When I first made this, it only had three flowers. I sent the picture to my mom for an honest critique and she told me to add two more for a better balance. She was right, don’t you think??!! I am in love with the clean lines of this wreath!
Here is a close-up of the flowers:
The best part is that I can actually make two of these out of one package of fabric and still have some of the Cherry/Vanilla fabric left for other uses.
This wreath will be part of a gift class I am offering in November. Please forgive me if I hold onto the specifics until that class is over. I can’t begin to tell you how lovely this fabric is in person. In fact, getting this inspired me to finally give in on the Deck the Halls DSP. I know…it is shocking that I held off as long as I as i did! I hope this starts getting you into the spirit of creating and giving your “Handmade Holiday” gifts this season (don’t forget the Handmade Holiday bundles listed on my sidebar)!!
