Pinterest Challenge!!!!!

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

Phew…now that the wedding has passed and we have returned from the honeymoon we will be able to relax and enjoy our home. WRONG! If I could show you pictures of my spare bedroom (which I won’t because it is so embarrassing) you would see that it will be quiet some time before I am able to relax. I have a lot of organizing, unpacking, and decorating to do! DON’T WORRY! I will make sure to fill you in on all of my exciting projects along the way.

However, the first order of business is the Pinterest Challenge. For this season’s Pinterest Challenge I have decided to make wreath for my front porch (which is going to look great when it is all done!) I found this a couple of months ago. I loved the little rosettes and the rustic look.



First I had to find a wooden wreath to use as the base. I found this one for $4 at Wal-Mart, but I also saw them at Michael’s.

The next part was a bit tricky…I had to decide what color felt to use! I love almost every color so this was the real challenge for me. I decided to use white because of the contrast and versatility.



Now for the fun part…making the wreath! I cut 5 circles from the felt. They don’t have to be the same size. Then I cut the circles into a spiral shape.

Then I rolled the spiral from the outside into the center. This created the rosette look.

I placed a dot of hot glue on the back of the rosette to hold it together and then glued it onto the wreath.



I decided to use 5 rosettes (I like the look of odd numbers), but you can use any number and multiple colors.



I love the way that it turned out, and I love that I did it on my own!
