I decided to try to make a quatrefoil wreath to hang in front of my house. Here’s what I did:
1. I took two small foam wreaths and cut it each in half with scissors.
2. Then I laid the pieces on my works surface and lined up the edges so it was even. I trimmed a couple of the sides so they would line up correctly.
3. I pinned the wreath edges together so the wreath would maintain it’s shape and so the edges would be tight.
4. Then I hot glued the edges together.
5. When the glue was cool, I wrapped the wreath in fabric. I cut a 2 inch section of fabric about 4 feet long. I wrapped it tightly all the way around the wreath and hot glued the ends down.
6. I added some ric rac and coordianting fabric to another strip of the fabric and added that at the top to hang the wreath.
7. I decided that it needed something else, so when I was at the craft store, I spied this plastic plate. I took it home and printed off a vinyl “H” on my Cricut and applied it to the plate.
8. I drilled a hole at the top of the plate. Added some ribbon and attached it to the bottom of the ribbon at the top of the wreath.
