Say that title three times fast!!
I bought these 10" grapevine at the thrft store way back in February. I knew I wanted to turn them into some kind of triple-decker wreath for the door, but just never got around to it.
Then one day at Michaels, I fell in love with this stripey ribbon with so many bright cheery colours. I knew this was the perfect starting point colour scheme for another spring door decoration. I bought some felt in coordinating colours and raced home to get started.
I googled many felt flower tutorials (I coudn't believe I hadn't made any before. I guess I thought they'd be too much work!) But really this of kind of flower is very easy - cut, pin, sew and gather! I spent just over an hour combining my felt colours, trying out many layers of petals and I was very pleased with what I came up with.
To fasten my wreaths together, I layered two kinds of ribbon and secured the loops with TONS of hot glue.
And on went my felt flowers:
I did three groupings with three flowers each and added a couple of green leaves to each.
Some flowers to the sides of the wreaths, some at the bottom.
I really liked how the coloured flowers POPPED on the white door in my hallway. I almost left it hung here.
But it's final location is on our front door, replacing the bunny basket and tulips I had hanging there for Easter.
Thanks for the visit! Come again soon. I'd love for you to become a FOLLOWER!
