New wreath and this week's to do list

Now that my craft room is organized,  I knew what I had and decided to make a wreath for our front door.  People have been making these fluffy wreaths for years.  You just need a wreath form  and fabric squares.


Actually, you will need lots and lots fabric squares.
More than in this photo, I had to cut more.  Mine are 4 inch squares.  They do not have to be perfect and if some are really crooked or too small, they will still work.





I used an old foam wreath. 
You also need a "poker" I used a plastic paint brush end but knitting needles or a screwdriver would work too. 







Put the fabric square around the poker and dip into a little glue,  then poke the fabric in the form, about a 1/4 inch deep.
The glue is optional.  But I live in windy Oklahoma, so I wanted to add a little support.






Then just fill in the wreath, front and sides with  fabric squares.  




 Close up and I did put fabric on the back of mine as our front door has a window.  I didn't want to look at the bare back of the styrofoam wreath.
And here is my new to do list for this week and my press on nail manicure.  Impress is my favorite brand. 

Have a good week everyone ❤️

  2. Pretty wreath! I started one of those years ago, got about 3/4 way thru' it, pressed too hard, & broke it! Waaaaa....

    Your nails look great! So bright and summery. Do you press on the whole nail or just the color? I'd love to find one with just the color that is cheap. I paint my nails every Sat. night, but it'd be nice to try something new.

  4. I love your wreath! I remember making something similar years ago and had forgotten all about it. That would be the perfect project to use up material scraps or recycle old clothing that has some rips or stains. Great job!

    I used to make those with straws wreaths as a base. Like the idea of adding glue. May have to try making one again sometime soon.
