Labor Day Wreath

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

I love when inspiration hits and all of the ideas swimming around in my head come together! That definitely happened when I found some cute fabric at a garage sale. One look at it and I knew it was perfect for Labor Day! I took some of it and turned it into a fun Labor Day wreath!

The first weekend of this month I went garage saleing (is that a word?) with a coworker of mine and hit the jackpot with this fabric. The seller said she had purchased it to make an apron out of it, but never got around to it. So her loss was my gain!

To make the bow, I used this tutorial from Gray Luster Girl, and first cut my pieces out of printer paper, then felt, then finally the fabric. My only change to her tutorial is to cut the back piece in half so the bow tails can be positioned to face down rather than out.

My fabric stuck to the felt but if yours don't, you could certainly use spray adhesive or a dot of hot glue to keep them together.

Back in May when I visited my mom in St. Paul, we visited her local Goodwill and I lucked out and found these cute cardboard cutouts that are attached to long sticks. They were only 49 cents! I decided to use them on this wreath to add depth, color, and whimsy!

I think this wreath is perfect for Labor Day, the 4th of July, and a perfect all around summer wreath!

Did you notice that the white yarn wreath form has been used again and again? Check it out here and here too! I hope you get Labor Day off work! Last hurrah of summer before fall is upon us!
