That's not horribly expensive. buy fabric on sale or with a coupon..and in the end it's still most likely cheaper than buying a pre-made wreath? I've never really bought one, so I wouldn't know, but usually, homemade things are cheaper. Unless the fabric is super expensive.....

That looks amazingly easy and I will DEFINITELY be making it! YAY! Another project!! LOL fun tutorial as well LOL :thumbsup:

Yeah its not CHEAP but its pretty and lasts a long time. If u want it permanent you can add a dab of fabric glue to the tip of each fabric piece as you push it in.

The saints one:
black fabric 2.99 a yard @30% off
gold fabric 2.99 a yard @30% off
ribbon: 2 spools @.99each (used only a little bit..)
So the fabric was roughly 9 after the discount and the ribbon 2 bucks? 6 bucks for wreath so for under 20 bucks, a wreath :)

oh and u can make an even cheaper version with flowers! Grab one of the flower bouquets from hobby lobby that has a lot of blooms and do it when they're half off :) Jab the flower stem in, viola! :)

I was thinking of looking through my scrap piles and maybe color cordinating them and working from there.

I at least want to aim for Oct/Nov so I can make a halloween or Fall one.

You know, I have enough Christmas material, that I might just make me a a new Christmas wreath. I need to get rid of my extra material and what a good way of doing that.

Or maybe just buy a Heart foam and make some Valentine wreath!

Thanks so much for your tutes lately Amy! :thumbup:

Yeah its very flexible...they have hearts, balls, etc. You could add flowers, birds, straw, etc. You could add dangly little paper cut outs (if it will be inside or protected), and let your imagination go wild :) Various colors makes a pretty one too, :)

Amy, were you the one that made those Christmas balls? I saw them (probably in Holiday Crafts) when I first came here. Where are ya'll hanging them? On the tree, from the ceiling, windows?

I did post when I did the ball one, just to show ya'll. I just hang them from curtain rods but you could make tiny small ones to hang from trees, etc :)

I just did one with flowers instead of fabric...picture is somewhere..
sorry for the stinky picture:

Aaahh....that's nice too Amy! I was in AC Moore while the Boss was in Bass Pro Shop. I've never been to a AC Moore and so it was a treat! I thought of you when I saw the styrofoam balls. :D

LOVE this idea! I enjoy working with fabric, but sewing is NOT my thing. However, I think I really want to give this a try and make a holiday wreath. Can't wait. Maybe it will even turn out decent enough to post a picture! LOL!

I saw something like this on pinterest, but she tacked the fabric in with pins. I like your method, and I think I'd use glue for extra security. Thanks for sharing!
