Just like I did with my fall wreath, I decided to give my winter wreath a makeover. I admit, I can get bored of some things sometimes and do like to change it up a bit. Hence the reason I’m a seasonal home decorator!
A couple of years ago I made this wreath.
I decided to change it up with some subtractions and some new additions. The new additions being these items pictured here… a glittered faux feather, a new fabric flower, and the paper straw snowflakes that I shared the how to for in the previous post.
The glitter on the brr was rubbed down to give it a less intense glittered effect, and it was moved to the opposite side where it was placed on top of the glittered feather.
Two of the original fabric flowers remained, and were joined by the new fabric flower. I made the new flower in the same method as the ones I made for my fall wreath, except I did use two layers of fabric. You can get the how to in this post HERE. Note: For the double layer, cut out a strip of fabric doubled in width and fold wrong sides together.
One of my favorite new elements are these fabric rag strips that replaced the bow on top. Just something a little different than the typical bow and a nice way to put fabric scraps to use.
And of course, the last of the additions… the paper straw snowflakes. I think the snowflakes add a hint of whimsiness along with the brr.
Since most of the elements were already pre-done, it was a quick wreath to put together. It’s rustic yet whimsy… probably not the typical duo but I think it says winter, don’t you?
