I am really loving Navy and Yellow right now.
I recently changed out my little kitchen nook for Spring with Navy and Yellow.
And I made a bunch of pillow covers for my home.
I was going through Ella’s clothes she has outgrown the other day and I came upon a navy and white checked shirt. It was one of my very favorite shirts that she wore. I thought it would be fun to take the shirt and make it into a wreath. So I did. I took the shirt and cut 3-inch strips in the material.
Then I wrapped them around a syrofoam wreath form. Since the strips were pretty short, I started and ended each of the strips at the back of the wreath, hot glueing them down at the back of the wreath.
Here’s how I made the wreath:
One I finished wrapping the wreath in shirt fabric, I made some colorful bows to go on the front. I thought it would be fun to make a wreath that could have different bows. Kind of an interchangeable wreath that could be changed up for different occasions or seasons.
So I made the bows. There are three different components in the bows. The first is the back part of the bow. I took two pieces of material and cut out a long strip with the ends with two points. I sewed those pieces together and left an opening at the center, so I could flip the material through. The center of the back will be covered up by the front part of the bow.
The second part was the front part of the bow – which is basically a big rectangle. I folded the rectangle together until the sides touched each other, with the right sides facing inwards. Then I sewed the edges together at the top and bottom. Then I flipped the inside out so the right sides faced outwards.
Then I sewed a 4 inch tube of material for the center of the bow. Once that was done, I wrapped the center of the bow around the large rectangle and the outer edges of the bow, making a bow shape. And then I hand-stitched the back of the bow to the center to keep the bow shape in place.
I made a couple of different bows. ANd I attached them to the wreath with pins. So all I have to do to change it up is unpin the bow and add a different one. I thought this would be cute if I made a RED bow for the 4th of July. Red White and Blue!
I love the PRETTY Spring look of this wreath. So fun!!
I also made some matching pillows and put them on a little bench. So pretty, nautical and SPRING looking!!
I can’t wait for SPRING!!
