Project Day: Beach Vintage Easy Peasy Wreath








This wreath is so easy to make, it took me half an hour I swear. You will need:
  • A wreath (mine was $2 in a thrift store but try craft shops for similar).
  • Some steel kitchen scourers (0.70c a pack of 3) - I used 5 for this wreath.
  • 2 ruffled pillow cases (thrift store finds).
  • Glue gun & Stapler.
Cut just the ruffle part of the pillow cases off so you have long strips of fabric as shown in pic # 2. Cut these strips into approx 8 inch/20cm strips and roll them around to form a rose. Staple the base of the fabric to hold rosette in place.
Grab your glue gun. Glue the steel scourers around. Then glue your fabric roses on. You can use as many or as little as you like.
I used an old doiley for the hanging cord, but you could use whatever you like.
Hang on your door!
Hope you are all getting on top of your Christmas shopping and also getting into the spirit of it all. Happy weekend and I will see you all Monday. Simone xx

  7. I am loving all of your Christmas decoration posts. My girls and I made one similar to your driftwood hanging from the ceiling. We used a gum tree branch and hung spare decorations we had from it. It is beautiful at night and lights up the whole loungeroom. The gum leaves we cut off the branch are making a beautiful temoraroy christmas tree until it's time to get a real one.
    Merry Christmas.
