I hope you are all enjoying Spring.
In Texas we are having some gorgeous days, in the 80's and no humidity. That does not happen around here ever!
After being sick for almost seven weeks, I am finding my way back into the land of the living. LOL
It has been a rough time for me and I don't think I will ever take my health for granted.
And now that I am starting to feel better, I have been changing things around the house for Spring.
I recently made a wreath for the front door using only items I already had since I was not feeling well enough to be in the stores.
I used a mix of burlap fabric flowers I made and lavender faux flowers I had for years.
I always like to add a little pearl to the center of the burlap flowers.
I wanted the wreath to blend with the pillows I have on the front entrance bench, I bought this fabric at Walmart many weeks ago on sale at $2.00 a yard.
I bought 2 yards, so I made three pillows for $4.00.
Can't beat that! But I could not find any ribbon that would go well with this fabric to make a pretty bow.
So I made my own using some of the leftover fabric.
This is how I made it.
I started by cutting two long strips of fabric and seamed them together.
Using iron on adhesive I made two small pockets and inserted through them floral wire to help me shape the bow when it was finished.
Using my favorite tool ever, the Bowdabra, I made a large bow.
And thanks to the floral wire inside fabric, I was able to shape it the way I liked very easily.
Very simple but I like the way it all came together.
Total cost for wreath and pillows was the $4.00 I spent on the fabric since I used everything else I had at home.
Little by little I have been adding some Spring touches around the house so I will be sharing them with you soon.
Meanwhile, enjoy the rest of your week and thank you so much for stopping by.
