Yesterday R came to me and asked if we could craft together. She wanted to make something for fall. We sat down together and dreamed up this sweet Fall wreath.
You Will Need:
Fabric – Cut into strips. This can be any kind of fabric you like.
Glue Gun – You will need a few sticks of glue for this project.
Patience – This is a time using project. Don’t do this if you want something quick.
Posterboard, Cardboard, or a foam wreath circle.
Cut your board into a circle. I am sure you can make yours a lot more symmetrical than mine. I let my 6 year do it the way she wanted it.
Cut your fabric into strips of varying lengths. You will need to cut enough for your wreath and for the rosettes.
Before making your rosette fold your strip in half. Because R is 6 and she was having a hard time holding it, I glued all of hers in half for her so she would not have to hold them.
Roll your fabric strip. You will have to glue it every round or so to hold it tight. You can really use creative freedom here. If you want them tight you can pinch them tight. You can let the frayed end be on top or underneath. You can twist it as you wrap it for a different look as well.
**You know your child’s abilities. I did the gluing for Rachel so she didn’t get burned. I will leave it to you. If you think your child can safely glue you can let them.***
You will end up with something that looks like this. Glue it onto your wreath wherever you would like your rosettes to be.
After you have most of your rosettes on you will want to wrap your circle with fabric. I glued mine each time it went around to be sure it would hold well. You can use multiple colors or styles depending on the look you are going for.
After you finish wrapping your fabric add a few rosettes to cover up any evidence of putting the fabric on. Hang it up and enjoy. We love ours and it’s just the touch of fall we needed.
