Here is how I made my Summer Wreath!
Start with a plain grapevine wreath (got mine from Hobby Lobby, 50% off of course)
If you are anything like me then you have a ton of scrap strips of fabric and left over pieces of ruffles. So get out your left over strips/ruffles and decide which fabrics you want to use:
Then simply begin to tie the strips or ruffles onto your wreath like this:
If it is a ruffle, then I like to tie it onto the wreath THEN pull the thread to ruffle each end.
Now tie pieces of ribbon on there too and eventually you will have this:
Now for the initial (in my case a "P"). You aren't going to believe how I made this one!
Ok, so I totally forgot to get a wooden "P" from Hobby Lobby and loading the kids up again was out of the question... so I decided to make a "P" out of a cereal box! I went to the computer and printed the outline of a "P" that I liked. Then got a cereal box...
I traced the "P."
And cut it out.
Then I flipped my "P" over and hot glued popcicle sticks to the back so it would keep it's shape during the humid summers down here.
I took this bad boy outside and gave it a good spray with metallic spray paint!
And then you have an awesome Summer Wreath!
Yay for Summer!
