- First off, I put the linen fabric in the center of the embroidery
hoop. I made it taut and left the extra fabric hanging out the sides.
You will need to tighten the fabric again at the end.
- Decide on what you want the wreath to say and sketch it out on
the fabric. I chose the saying “hello fall” and used the two different
fonts to make it interesting. I had to google how to embroider and used
this website as my guide: Needle ‘n Thread. I used the
chain stitch for “fall” and the stem stitch for “hello”.
- After I had the phrase embroidered on the fabric, I started cutting
out leaves and grouping them together. I also used some leftover fabric
from a tank top that I shortened to make some rosettes and to add
- Lastly, I added the burlap
garland around the edge as a ruffle. I threw in a wide stitch through
the garland edge and pulled it tight until I had the right size. Once I
tied it off and brought the two edges together, I turned over the hoop
and hot glued the ruffle to the back of the wreath.
- I love the bright colors of the design and natural textures of the linen and burlap together!
