Home is Where the Anchor Drops Mat and Wreath

So a couple of weeks ago, I was out shopping with Elisabeth at Hobby Lobby for a Valentine’s Day wreath she had in mind. I didn’t need anything,` was just browsing. We were looking at ribbons, and I saw this anchor ribbon, that I knew I absolutely needed, and I needed to make a wreath out of it! Sometimes inspiration hits just that quick! I happened to find the wooden anchor at Hobby Lobby too, and of course they had the wire form wreaths too.

Spring Burlap Wreath

Happy Easter!

Here is a charming spring wreath with alternating colors of yellow and blue with a pop of pink from a big, fun bow. Today’s tutorial requires no glue, just a straw wreath form and floral pins. My finger tips thanked me for leaving the hot glue boxed away for this craft!

Easy DIY Christmas Ornament Wreath

This is BY FAR the easiest way to make an ornament wreath. I tried making one earlier in the week with glass ornaments and hot glue and let me just say… that was a big, giant nightmare. Make it easy on yourself and stick to the plastic ornaments and don’t even look at the glue. I used about 70 ornaments to make this wreath. I have about 30 of the smallest ornaments left in my package and I’m thinking about making another with just the small ones.

Yarn Wrapped Letter Monogram

Elisabeth and I are busy getting ready for our first craft booth next weekend. We’ll have some really great posts coming up about our booth design and booth crafts for displays. We are having a lot of fun but are quickly learning the amount of time and work it takes to have a craft booth.

Today’s craft is an oldie but a goody. It’s a monogram wreath or display that has been wrapped in yarn. I think this would love great with sayings like “home” or “love” or initials in a nursery or on a mantel. So many great ideas!

Scrap Burlap Monogram Wreath

So, if you follow this blog regularly, you can see that we love our wreaths!! Elisabeth, Cassie and I have wreaths for every season/holiday. Weeks ago, I joked with Elisabeth because I have made a wreath for everything imaginable and now I don’t have any more occasions to create a new wreath! Lucky for me, Elisabeth and I were out with my best friend, Jill, and we were talking about the Americana Wreath we had made and Jill made a comment that she wanted a wreath like that. She said she loves seeing all the nice wreaths in her neighborhood and wanted her own. Her birthday was only a month a way, so I now knew what I was going to get her!

Texas Wreath

Elisabeth and I have had so much popularity with her Americana Wreath. We’ve blogged about it here, are selling it on Etsy and have even taught craft classes teaching people how to make it. Her use of burlap and ruffles to make the American Flag inspired me to recreate the Texas flag using the same technique. Here are some step by step pictures and instructions to tell you exactly how to make this fun, rustic, Texas wreath.
