Fall Wreath

At the beginning of the month I went on a mini-shopping spree at the Hobby Lobby. I bought the makings for a fall wreath. Grapevine wreath, a fall-ish floral spray, and some fabric remnants. I've seen so many pins on pinterest of these fabric rosettes that I had to try my hand at them.

I spent all of a Sunday on the couch with scissors and my glue gun making a dozen fabric rosettes. is so great. I just did a search for fabric rosettes and found several how-to videos to get the general idea of how these cuties are made.

I stuck the floral spray into the grapevine wreath and sort of twisted it into the position I liked. I took some leftover fabric to tie the spray exactly where I wanted it. Floral wiring would have worked great..but I didn't have any. I'm a resourceful girl.

Speaking of being resourceful. I bought a sheet of fall themed scrapbook paper to cover my 'S'. I started gluing the paper on the letter just to realize the 'S' was backwards. DOH! That's why the naked 'S' up there is looking a little ragged. Instead of buying another piece of paper (a whole $.54 I saved myself) I used more of the left over fabric to wrap the 'S'.

This is what the finished product looks like on my front door. My Mom says its shabby chic.


  1. Jinny it looks so cute and festive!!!

    I've never had a wreath on my own front door until this year but growing up my mom would always buy a pretty one from the farmer's market... I loved coming home and sitting on the front porch looking at them, sometimes they'd have dried flowers, sometimes moss... but they were always so pretty!

    Yay for being crafty!
