Argyle Autumn Wreath

This weekend was autumn perfection. We tailgated in the sunshine. We saw Ohio State beat Wisconsin in the Shoe. We went to church, the grocery, and made chili in the crock pot, and ate it while we watched football. And last night, I made a new little wreath for autumn, out of materials and fabrics I already had. Freebie project, for the win.

I had some autmumn-toned fabric on hand from Jonathan’s grandmother, and I thought this might be a sweet way to use it. If you’d like to make your own, simply wrap a styrofoam wreath form in fabric (I used burlap, which I have sooo much of). Lay out your little fabric squares corner to corner, and use a stick pin to secure each one. I slowly wrapped the twine, securing it with a few stick pins at the beginning and end. I then tacked town the outer corners of each fabric square with a little dot of glue. I used as little glue as possible, overall, so that if I want to change it out at some point, and reuse the fabric and wreath form, I can.photo 2

Yes, these are iPhone photos. Hopefully I can take some nice ones this week, but when you make a project at night, and want to post about it right away, this is what you get. 

Happy crafting, and more importantly, happy Autumn!!photo 5
