Well, the jury is out. Spring has sprung here in Virginia, or at least I think so. It was 60 degrees this weekend, almost 70 on Tuesday and it looks like there’s another lovely weekend headed our way! With all this warm weather coming I figured it was time to take down my snowflake winter wreath and add some spring to the door.
I’ve seen a ton of fabric flower pictures and tutorials on other blogs and Pinterest, so I figured it was time for me to give it a try! This was seriously the easiest project ever! All it takes is a few fabric scraps, some pins and that’s it! I started with some fabric squares I picked up at Joann Fabric not too long ago. Then I cut out strips of the fabric, about 5 inches wide. To get your flower going you simply tie a knot at one end of the fabric, and then twist your fabric and wrap it around the knot. I like to twist tightly at first and then twist a little less as I get to the outside of the flower. Once you’ve wrapped almost all of the fabric, leave about 2 inches untwisted and fold it to the back of the flower to create a backing. Then I just stuck a pin all the way through the flower and into my wreath. Make sure you push the pin in all the way and in a spot where you can hide the colored ball at the end. Then just keep going with as many colors and patterns as you like! I used green, yellow and pink, but decided to add some contrast and grabbed a flowered black and white fabric from my scrap pile.Rolling all of the flowers and pinning them only took me about an hour last night, so about the length a tv show. My show of choice last night was The Lying Game, don’t judge. I love the way it looks, so much so I hung it up at 11pm last night and stood in the cold staring at it. Have you started getting your house ready for spring? I really need to work on my mantle and spring cleaning soon!
