This week I was doing little projects to complete the Christmas decorating around the house. I don't have that many decorations and the ones I have either, are in the colors I don't want to use this year or I have used them so many times that I got tired of them.
Since my theme this year is a wintry blue Christmas, I wanted to have white wreaths instead of the traditional green ones.
This project fits my budget pretty well, each wreath only costs three dollars.
The material I used to make one:
½ yard winter white fleece (the 60"wide was only 3.99/yard)
1 wooden wreath from the dollar tree store
With the fabric folded in half I cut four strips 3½" wide, then, each strip was folded lengthwise and pinned it.
This is how it looks when its all cut.
I use the medium size wreath, the ones seold at the dollar store.
Tie one end of the fringed strip to the wreath, making a knot to keep it in place and with the fringe folded, keep on wrapping it around the wreath. No glue necessary, as you're done with a strip, tied it in place and begin with a new one.
Until its all cover.
A good piece of ribbon to hang it and that's it!
