A Raggy Wreath



As I sit here at my laptop and stalk craft blogs from all over the world I see so many clever people out there making gorgeous things and giving tutorials on how to make them. Great for me who is into craft at the moment.

So, I thought I would give this easy peasy wreath a go, just for something completely different for our home. I found a great tutorial here Needless to say mine is not as neat as featured - my fabric was tied rather randomly.

 There are so many tutorials that use so many different bases for these wreaths. It's amazing! I made mine with a wicker wreath that I picked up at a thrift store last year and used odds and ends from my fabric stash!

Just wondering if you can tell I am in a red and white mood ....with a splash of aqua. I am just loving this colour combo!

It's beautiful Pam. I love the fact it's traditional Christmas red combined with aqua. A perfect combo for decorating in a hotter climate and very eye catching.

I feel confident (which is rare) that I could have a go at making one of these. xx
