Sew your own wreath to decorate your space. This is a fun piece that is sure to stand out. The ruffles add a whimsical, fun touch to a traditional project. Start this summer so it will be ready to hang when the weather gets cool.

Materials:

 Straw wreath form (I used an 18 inch diameter)

 1 1/8 yard of coordinating fabric
 Embellishments
 Hot glue gun
 Ribbon
 Monogram
 Spray paint
 Cutting mat and rotary cutter

Instructions:

1.) Spray paint your letter on both sides. I added another coat of gold glitter spray for some sparkly bling. Let dry for a couple of

hours before handling.

2.) Cut your fabric into 2 1/2 inch strips. Set aside 4 strips to use for rolled fabric rosettes.  Cut two in half again to create various sizes.

3.) With remaining strips of fabric, sew a gathering stitch (the longest setting on your sewing machine) down the center of each strip.

4.) With each strip, pull the bobbin thread to gather the fabric. Pull until the entire strip forms a ruffle. Do this with remaining strips.

5.) Attach each ruffle to the straw wreath by pinning one end and wrapping it around.  Continue with each ruffle pinning and wrapping using whatever pattern you prefer.
