Now that I accomplished one man-craft over the weekend, I thought it was about time I make something with my husband in mind. With football season coming up, I’ve already had to put my foot down and tell him we’re not buying the $50 Michigan flag. Again. Sorry, honey.
I did decide that a little maize and blue around the house wouldn’t be all bad, though. Hey, I’m a good sport, I just don’t like to part with ridiculous amounts of cash to prove it. I’ve been seeing different variations of fall wreaths all over, and I decided we could use a wreath.
I have never owned a wreath. Not even a Christmas one. So our next purchase will need to be a hanger of some sort, because I think I could definitely get on this wreath bandwagon.
I’ve seen some lovely ribbon-wrapped wreaths posted out there, but it’s just not my style. Instead, I opted for a fluffy, scrappy version. And it was extremely easy, if a little time-consuming. A great project to recruit your kids’ help with if they are at an appropriate age!
Time: 1.5 hours
- 12″ Foam Wreath
- At least 2/3 yard fabric, cut into 1.5 inch squares. I had about 1/3 each of some inexpensive broadcloth on-hand in our team colors, and I used every last inch.
- Glue (I used a fabric and paper craft glue)
- Embellishment as desired (initial, logo, ornament, etc.)
It turned out, my husband was a lot more excited than I thought he would be. I really never make anything for him (if you recall, I’m a terrible cook, so food is out), but he was really happy to be the recipient this time… though I’m just waiting to hear what else we should get to “go” with our new addition to the decor. :)
I link to these fabulous parties!
