A Spring Wreath

Spring begins this month and my front door is ready! I’ve been brainstorming about my Spring wreath (Seriously. I think I had a dream about it the other night.) and I’m happy to be sharing it with you today…

I bought this dress at Goodwill to use as the main fabric. After all, a dress for less than $3 sure beats paying for fabric!

Cute, right? I cut it in strips and hot glued it to my wreath base.

Welcome to my fabric stash–this doesn’t even touch the madness. I picked out a few leftover fabrics that I thought would make cute flowers.

I made my flowers using the No Sew Fabric Flower tutorial from a few months ago. Then, I hot glued them to my wreath base. I followed the pattern of my chevron fabric to cut out little “flags”, which I think add dimension. Too easy.

Have you changed out the wreath on your door, yet? I’d love to see! Send me some pictures and I may post them on the blog. I’d love to do a round-up of Spring wreaths!

Enjoying the Good Life,

Kendra

  1. I just finished our wreath. Yours is so pretty, and ingenious to use a dress! I’m so doing that!

  2. Great use of an old dress! I always have old clothes that I love but don’t fit quite right. Now I know what to do with them. Thanks for linking up at Burlap & Denim

  5. I have had much experience with fabrics, however never considered using a discount item as material for a wreath. Great idea! It gives your creation a lot of character.

  6. I love the colors against your red door. Nice work. ~Kelly

  9. Such a great way to reuse a dress! The color of the fabric is fabulous. I think teal is my new favorite color of the season:)

  10. What a great spring wreath. I love the turquois and the fact that it was a $3. dress. Great job!

  11. Wow, loved the idea you used the dress for the main fabric, I really like it. Your flowers are so pretty, and love how they turned out. I have not started my wreath yet, I always feel so behind. Maybe it;s cause I don’t move like I use to. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday’s Best.
