Easy Fabric Wreath Tutorial

22 Mar
I said I would be back with the fabric wreath tutorial and so I am! 🙂


This one is SO EASY!!  First, let me say, I have either been super busy or just feeling BLAH!  And the month of February here on this blog REALLY shows that.  Come to find out, my bottle of Female Hormonal Balancing herbs was bad.  Like, I let it sit outside in the mail box too long bad.  I didn’t notice this until weeks of taking them.  And after being on them for over a year it was like I just suddenly stopped.  I was a WRECK! BUT…I’m back, new bottle, new smile, clean house, happy hubs and daughter!  So I’m back in the blogsphere!


That being said, I missed the Spring Fling announcement!!  I was thinking just the other day “where are the spring link parties??”.  It wasn’t hard to find!  When I saw the dates they would post I went on a crazy craft hunt in my home.  I put together my Spring Mantel mostly with stuff I already had.  I only had to buy yarn and ladybugs.  So, when I tell you this is easy, I mean like I put this together in an hour easy!  Well, the wreath part.  The pom poms were maybe another half hour!  Pom pom tutorial coming soon!! 

You will need: 
a wreath form, foam would be best
fabric
scissors
pins or hot glue and a glue gun 

Take your fabric and cut it into squares.  Mine here are about 3″ x 3″.  
Fold your square into a triangle.
And fold it one more time.

Dab on a dot of glue, or use a pin if you have them.  I didn’t have pins so glue had to do!
and place it on your wreath.
Now, you’ll notice that this happens!  It flips open to the first triangle.
There are two ways to fix this.  One, when you layer the next triangle on top it will hold the other down.
But sometimes that doesn’t work.  So, I just put a little dot of hot glue on the inside to hold the folds together.  When you use pins for this they don’t flap open as much. 

Now, repeat that process a few dozen times…
yes….that is a Monchichi!

After a while you will have this!!!
So cute, right?  My husband thought of the yellow pom poms and ladybugs.  He’s so crafty!!  Pom poms are also really easy to make and I will share that tutorial with you a little later.  I gotta tell ya, I was really surprised with how fast and easy this was!  AND, I pinned (bought pins with the yarn and ladybugs) the pom poms and ladybugs on so that when I’m ready to change up the look a little bit I can.  I think some pretty burlap rosettes would look nice on this wreath, don’t you?




 And here it is on the mantel.  You can see how I pieced the mantel together and hear the sentimental story behind this wreath if you click here!  This wreath is made from my beloved nephew Khaleeq’s old sheet.



Pin It

Well, there you have it!!  Happy crafting y’all!

Super Easy Patriotic Banner

24 Jun

Have you seen the Awesome Patriotic Banner at Madigan Made?  It was the inspiration behind this banner.  
First, I inconspicuously collected some paint chip samples!

I traced and cut stars in 3 different sizes. 

Glued them together.

Then I hot glued them onto some twine. 

I played around with different ways to hang it. 

 Simple and cute right? 




We are moving from AZ back to our HOME STATE of TEXAS!!! It’s a bit crazy with packing up and all right now! SO, if anyone is will to help out I need some guest bloggers ASAP!!! Would you help?? Please Please!?!
