One of my Christmas gifts was this awesome rotary cutter and mat. I gave it a workout cutting hundreds of fabric strips. I used four different fabrics, cutting each into 9" x 1" pieces. We made two wreaths (one for Grandma's house) and I think we used about 3 yards total of fabric. I'm not sure exactly though, as I did have to run back to the store for more and I can't find my receipts to check.
The frame is a medium size from Hobby Lobby. We tied strips around the wreath in random order, but following the pattern of one in the middle and then one on each side.
This is the back of the wreath, just so you can see how I tied them on:
My wreath hanger is this magnetic thing that I bought at Meijer over Christmas. I saw it mentioned on another blog and had to get one right away!
Fluffy Valentine's Day goodness.
And now our front door is gorgeous!
The girls had a blast helping me pick out the fabrics to use and tying a few strips on the wreath, although they did get tired of it after a while. When we were finished with the wreaths, I let them design their own Valentine's Day shirts.
It not even Valentine's Day yet! I still have a few more fun ideas planned.... :)
