Summer Wreath Tutorial

Here you go, guys. A simple tutorial for the wreath shared yesterday. You can do it for lots of holidays, events, etc. I can't wait to make something like this for Halloween.

First thing you need - some fabric. This is a great scrap-busting project, so pull out any leftover fabric you have. I used only six or seven, but I could have used about 20 fabrics. (Know what I mean?)

Then find circular things. I went through all of our measuring cups. And some drinking cups. And some cosmetic items. It took lots of stuff for me to get all the circle sizes I want. So be patient.

Cut out lots of circles in all the different sizes. (I had a total of about six different circle sizes.) This doesn't take all that long. I watched a few episodes of Glee while cutting it, and I'm a really slow cutter.

Set out your large circles and then stack them up. I tried to avoid using the same fabric in one flower, but it doesn't always work. Just give it your best shot.

Wrap a wreath in burlap or fabric--whichever you prefer. I went with this because I bought this stuff in bulk a few months back, and I can't seem to get rid of all of it.

Use brads or buttons to puncture through the flower. These are some scrapbooking brads I had. You can usually find some on clearance in the back of craft stores.

With all of your flowers pierced through with the brads, begin placing the flowers on your wreath in whatever pattern you prefer.

Tie a ribbon on the top to hang the wreath, and you're done!
