Wreath Trio with Fabric Flowers


In preparation for my craft night back in March (when we made grapevine wreaths) I decided to shop online to see if I could purchase grapevine wreaths in bulk. I was so excited to find a site that would sell a set of 10 for a couple dollars a piece. Much to my dismay, I must have misread the dimensions.... when the box arrived, I opened it to find 10 mini grapevine wreaths. I knew that they weren't going to cut it for craft night, so I quickly solved the issue by going out to by regular sized wreaths :)

The other day, while organizing my craft supplies, I stumbled upon the box of mini wreaths and started brainstorming how I could use them.

Last night, my dear friend, Emily came over for dinner and we decided to craft it up using the mini wreaths. We thought that a trio of the wreaths would be really cool....we could string them together and hang them down a door or window.

We scrounged around my fabric bin and chose the colors we wanted and got to work on fabric flowers. A few glue burns later, we had our wreath completely decorated. Emily used ribbon to attach her three wreaths to one another and I used strips of chevron fabric.

Here we are with our wreath trios...

Bentley had to pose with us :)

I decided to hang mine in our dining area, on one of our pantry doors...



Here are some close ups of my wreaths...





I am so happy with how they turned out and now I don't feel like the mini wreaths went to waste!
