Felt & Fabric Burlap Wreath

3rd November 2015

This wreath is one I designed uniquely for Miranda in Illinois.   That’s why I’m naming this style The Miranda.  Oooooo, so official!

She wanted a wreath that could be up all year which is always tricky because all color schemes lean towards seasons:  light colors are spring-y, bright colors are summer-y, warm colors are fall, and so on.

Miranda told me she doesn’t like pinks but likes blues, greens, grays, yellows, etc. She told me she loved my fabric yo-yo wreaths but wanted hers to be one of a kind like the others wreaths I make so I knew I had to take it a little off path.

SO I used the color scheme she likes and a scheme that would compliment her funky colored green front door.

I used pops of white and some silver buttons to take away from the faller tones of the natural burlap and the wooden buttons.  To make it one of kind, I took the yo-yo look she liked and added a few felt flowers to blend the two together which I hadn’t done before.

The colors have warmth but the clean white and bright blue can take it from spring, to summer, and the warm tones and burlap ground it in to fall.  I used fabrics with subtle green to play off her fun colored door.

It has texture with metals and wood, fabric, felt, and burlap.  It’s a funky mix of yo-yos which are a little of beat and mixed with my traditional felt flowers.  It’s clean, interesting, colorful, and crisp! It’s even prettier in person!

I hope you like your one of a kind wreath!  Thanks for your order and thanks for being a faithful reader!

Felt Flower Fall Wreath

26th October 2015


This is the Mac Daddy of wreaths to me.  I designed this for the craft expo I have a booth at this coming Saturday.  If you are interested, come and check it out!

I wrapped this wreath in burlap and used a mixed of wool and eco bamboo felt to set this color scheme.  I love the balance and mix of textures.  If I ever marry  a wreath, I hope it’s this one.
