Front Door Friday - Fabric, Yarn and Felt Spring Wreath

Welcome to the first Front Door Friday! You may or may not know, but I have a thing for wreaths. I love to make wreaths for family, friends, and of course, my front door. I especially love yarn wreaths, but I've been venturing out into other materials, too. And just about every wreath I make features some handmade flowers (usually available in my Etsy shop, Precocious Paper). To kick off this blog series, I thought I would share a wreath for Spring:

I was inspired by several pins from my Color Palettes Pinterest board:

onetwo - three

I used fabric to wrap the entire wreath; a floral print for two thirds of the wreath, and a gray damask print for the rest. Incidentally, both of these fabrics are available in my shop as Ruffle Blossoms :).

I wrapped two colors of yarn around that, then embellished with silk flowers (Prima), mother of pearl buttons and handmade felt flowers.

I struggle with finding the perfect ribbon to hang my wreaths from (I don't like to hook the wreath directly to the door). This time, though, I just happened to have this gorgeous striped ribbon on hand and it was a great match.

I hope you'll join me every Friday for a new wreath or door decor project. In the meantime, you can see which wreaths are inspiring me by visiting my Wreaths Pinterest board. I've had several customers in the past few weeks purchase flowers for wreaths that they were making. Do you make your own wreaths? I'd love to see! And I'd love for you to visit my shop. Let me know if there is anything I can make for you :).

Happy Friday! Tessa
