DIY Christmas wreath

I thought I'd share this quick and easy wreath idea.

I made it using a steering wheel cover from the dollar store (it was $3.50).

I cut strips of textured oatmeal fabric and wrapped them around it, securing each end at the back with hot glue.

Then I hot glued red and green buttons onto it.

I painted three wooden plaques and distressed the edges with my polka dot emery board.

I hot glued a strip of faux suede ribbon onto the back and secured it to the wrapped wreath.

  5. Hey Jenny, please can you tell me how to print off your blog? I want to keep a hard copy and don't know how to print them off from the blog without copying and pasting into a word document (I'm sure that is not the best way.)
    Thanks, and I'm glad to see you are loving life!
    Love Gill.

    1. In my opinion, the best way to do it would be to 'slurp' it with the Blurb software and then order the book. Other than that, I don't know any other way than just copying and pasting. Once you factor in your time, paper and ink it's probably cheaper to do the Blurb book anyway!

  7. Super cute. Will be making this one for next year! I'm thinking your idea could be used for any season, V-day, Spring, Summer, Easter... just change out the sign in the middle and adjust the color of buttons or fabric! I found your excellent blog through a comment on a wreath blog I had posted, you were one of the wreaths featured on her post (she left her web address in her comment: AnneWalker). Attached is my address to my post that I'm speaking of: http://lisakramerartlifestyle.blogspot.com/2011/12/today-i-made-two-wire-and-fabric.html
