After a long break over the summer, Amie (Kitty Cats and Airplanes) finally met again for a long overdue crafty afternoon. On the menu: Fall wreaths. Amie had bought a great wreath at one of our Goodwill expeditions but somehow it stayed at her place so the first thing we did was to run to Home Depot to grab a couple of pieces of pipe insulation to make a low-cost support. Not perfect but it does the job.
Sewing a length of yarn inside each long tube made the job way easier
Amie loved learning a new trick ... and making silly faces for the camera.
That's a LOT of yarn
And for the final touch, a few felt rosettes
ooh great idea with the piping! I can never find big enough wreath supports!! And I LOVE your braided fabric wreath, it is so beautiful! Is there a tutorial in the making?.... xReplyDelete
