Do you have one craft that you love to make the most??
Mine has to be wreaths. I LOVE creating them.
I have so many wreath ideas floating around in my head. And that is why I am so excited about this post.
Back in January, Beckie from Infarrantly Creative and I thought of a fun idea.
What if we each thought of a different wreath to make every month for 6 months??
We are teaming up up with Styrocrafts — the maker of Styrofoam wreaths for this 6-month challenge!!
And the most exciting part?? YOU get to be involved!!
more to that coming up!
Here is my first wreath for this challenge — a Beachy Canvas Rosette Wreath.
I took the canvas rosettes that I love to make and made a big mess of them for this wreath. The thing I love about this wreath is you can make it for ANY holiday or occasion. Halloween with orange and a big black rosette or vice-versa. What about Christmas with red rosettes and one big green one? Or how about the Fourth of July with blue rosettes and one big red one?? So fun.
Here’s how I made this Canvas Rosette Wreath:
- I tore 35 lengths of 26″ long and 2″ wide strips out of yellow canvas.
- And I made flowers out of the canvas strips. (you can find the total Flower Rosette Tutorial here)
- Then I took a Styrofoam wreath form and wrapped it in yellow canvas (4 inch strip)
- Once the flowers were made, I pinned them on the wreath, leaving space for the big turquoise rosette.
- Then I hot glued the flowers onto the wreath form.
- The last thing I did was tear two lengths of canvas 2 inches in width by 30 inches in length and tied them in a knot for the front of the wreath.
- And hung it up!
Beckie and I are also excited to tell you about a NEW Pinterest Board that we have created — The Ultimate Wreath Board (Styrofoam). We will be pinning our favorite wreath ideas there.

I absolutely adore this wreath!!! Thank you for sharing the idea!
Love all the rosettes … can’t wait to see the wreaths you & Beckie create the next few months!
Hi…when I click on the link for how to make a flower rosette it takes me to the Pinterest page..instead of the tutorial. I will try and locate it on your website another way but wanted to let you know. Thanks!
Thanks — it’s all fixed!
Hi I was trying to get information about sponsoring and giveaways, and your link takes me to a site that sells viagra. Just thought you should know. My email is terrastreasures1 at gmail dot com
Hi! The site was hacked last week but it should be all fixed. I’ll send you an email with a link to the media kit. Thanks!

I love it Jen! The yellow flowers are fabulous! I am so inspired to try something with rosettes! Beautiful! Angie xo
Do you have any trouble with your flowers falling off from the heat? I’ve made several and hot glued them and usually within a couple of days, I open my door and some of the glued on flowers are sitting on the front stoop. Any suggestions??
I haven’t had that problem. Do you live in a humid climate? That might be it. There is hot glue that is made to be used on fabric. I think that type of hot glue would do better on these kinds of wreaths for people that have humidity.
Here’s a link to that type of hot glue — http://www.stuff4crafts.com/7-16-x4-12-pkg-all-temp-fabric-stick-glue-stick-fs-12.html?CAWELAID=600722815&gclid=CPya1I-SobECFUMCQAodNwTJcQ
Such a beautiful rosettes wreath, and I love the colors! Thank you so much for the tutorial, and the creative ideas for so many different holidays. Thanks again, Jen! Sharon
