Moss Wreath Finished!
I’m so excited to finally show you this super cute wreath!!
I know, I’ve been working on this project a long time. (Actually, the wreath sat in my basement for awhile, with no work being done to it.)
When it came to this wreath, I was just so indecisive about what I wanted to add to it. I knew I loved the moss base as soon as I saw it.
At first, I thought I might use burlap and create some nests and add robin’s eggs, like Midwestern Sewing Girl’s adorable nest art. I had the burlap, but didn’t want to spend money on eggs, cute as they might be.
I loved The Creative Place’s Baby Grass wreath with the “Bare feet Welcome” sign and knew I wanted to incorporate that.
So I created this simple text on Picnik (yes, I’m using Picnik all the way until April 19th!!), then printed it out and used marker to spruce it up.
I knew I wanted to include a pennant banner, so I played around with colors and made sure I found something that would match.
Then, I made these rosettes out of old t-shirts and sweaters. Since, we’ve been decluttering and I knew I was going to make this wreath, I set some clothing aside that had vibrant colors.
I don’t have a picture step-by-step tutorial, but to make the rosettes you just need to:
1) cut a long strip of fabric
2) tie a knot on one end
3) starting from the knot end – twist the fabric around in a circle, sewing it together as you go
It’s pretty easy, just time consuming. It took me almost 2 movies to make 11 rosettes.
So, you ready to see all the elements put together?
The finished product!!
I had a little fun with Picnik, trying to find the perfect effect for my wreath:
I think this framed version is my favorite:
