That's one thing I LOVE about blog land, you can be inspired by something and then end up with something that's totally different and represents your style.
So to create my Spring wreath, you're going to need:
A styrofoam wreath form (got mine at the Dollar Tree)
Scrap fabric in assorted spring colors
Ribbon (I used two different kinds - a thick satin ribbon for wrapping the wreath form and then a thin white ribbon for the bunting)
Iron on fabric interfacing (I used heat and bond)
1. Cover your wreath form in white (or a color of your choice) ribbon. Put a dab of glue on the back of the wreath when you start and then just keep wrapping and wrapping and wrapping the ribbon all the way around the wreath until it's covered. Set it aside for now.
2. Now, make your rosettes. There's a bunch of rosette tutorials out there but this one is my favorite. (You use pipe cleaners when creating the rosettes and I like the stability the pipe cleaner gives to it.) Glue your rosettes where you'd like them to go on your wreath using hot glue. (If you wanted to make this an interchangeable wreath, which I'm going to do at some point so I don't have 100 different wreaths for every season, you could just use velcro on the back of the rosettes and the wreath like this blogger did.)
3. Now to create the Spring bunting, I used a triangle shape that was in my Silhouette library and cut them all out of white fabric with my Silhouette machine but you could just free hand the triangles if you don't have a Silhouette or similar cutting machine. Iron on the fabric interfacing to the back of your different scrap fabrics that you will use for your letters. Cut the letters out of the fabric. I used my Silhouette for this too. Then just iron your letters on to your triangles and glue the triangles on to a piece of ribbon. To attach it to the wreath, I was initially going to hot glue it but was having trouble trying to get it all lined up so I decided I would pin it with straight pins and then glue it. My pins have little yellow ends and once I put them in the wreath to hold the bunting, I decided it looked cute just like that so I left the pins in.
4. Tie on some ribbon (I actually used a long strip of fabric from one of the fabrics used to create the wreath), hang your wreath, and admire it's cuteness!
I love it. That little spring bunting makes me smile every time I see it.
I went ahead and hung it in hopes that hanging my spring wreath will make the spring weather come. I'm tired of the wind and rain we've had all week!
