(I am going to try to do a tutorial for this, but bare with me because I have never done one before.)
I started out by wrapping the wreath with a red knit fabric like shown. I secured the fabric by placing a dot of glue from a hot glue gun every couple of wraps.
Next, I cut several circles out of various holiday fabrics. (I used the same material that I used for the stockings).
Once the circles were all cut, I started gluing them onto the wreath to create flowers. I pinched the fabric and tried to pucker it before the glue dried to give it more of a 3D look.
Once I finished creating little flowers around the entire wreath, I used the hot glue gun to place buttons in the middle of each flower.
After all of the buttons were glued on, I simply attached a matching ribbon to the back of the wreath!
And we're done!!
This project probably took me a total of 2-3 hours. I'm really happy with the end results and I love that it matches the stockings. It really pulls the room together. Duglokk is impressed too. I've been showing him all sorts of Suzy Homemaker tricks lately. Haha.
Is anyone else doing a handmade theme this year? I'd love to see some of your creations!
EDIT: I just wanted to point out my super cute hot glue gun. Yes, I did purposely take pictures of it to show it off. ;) $3 at Michael's!
