Project Day: Beach Vintage Wreath











Every year I try to make a Christmas wreath for our front door. Do you remember last years one made from steel scourers? Well this year I wanted something with a little bit of colour and fun! You will need:
  • A plain undecorated wreath.
  • Red Polka Dot cotton fabric.
  • Green polka dot ribbon.
  • 2 vintage doileys.
Cut up strips of all fabrics, ribbon and doiley's. Tie them random over the wreath. Some in bows, some not. Some in order. Some not!
Hang on the front door. I used a tiny nail in the door to hold it in place.
Of course if you are too lazy or time poor, you can buy these wreaths in my store at Bulimba or online here.
Hope your weekend is filled with a little bit of Christmas craft!

  8. I agree its fun to make a wreath for the door every year. I usually grab a bunch of the weed known as Ivy that is taking over my front garden. Just lasts long enough as I don't decorate until after No. 2's birthday on the 16th.
    Parcel is on its way up to you today by the way ;)
