Picture Frame Wreath

This might be one of my favorite crafts so far! I really like how it turned out and I think it’s so fun!  I had seen this from Tater Tots & Jello awhile back and thought it was great and then I searched Pinterest for “picture frame wreaths” and saw some other fun stuff! (PS- let me know if you want to be invited to Pinterest!). So here’s what I came up with.
I started off with 2 black plastic frames and painted them turquoise
misc. may 005
Cut out a bunch of triangles on my Cricut (I glued 2 layers together to make them a little sturdier and then punched holes in the top of them all)
misc. may 011
Then using my scrap fabric, made a bunch of fabric rosettes
misc. may 012
I figured since hot glue would melt being out in the heat, I better not attach the flowers that way.  Instead, I tied them on.  I just kind of sewed through the flower using embroidery thread and then tied it around the back
misc. may 015
I picked up two B’s from Jo-Anns and painted them bright orange.  I also tied those on!
I made the bunting out of my little triangles and some rope and tied it on.  Added a little yellow ribbon and hung it up!
Here’s the other door’s wreath.  I used a smaller B for it.
I know it’s kinda hard to see them through the glass, but you get the idea!
Easy, cheap and super summery! Love it!

Mother's Day Wreath

I finally made a yarn wreath (after having everything for one for f.o.r.e.v.e.r)! I gave it to mom for Mother's Day and I think it turned out pretty nice.

I attached the fabric rosettes to a square of felt

and attached that and the bunting with velcro strips, so she can remove them and do anything with the yarn wreath.

Doesn't hurt that I matched the colors and fabric to her V-day bouquet of flowers!
