You've probably seen these wreaths all over by now. When something like this becomes so big, it's clear that it's stinkin amazing! I told my friends about how I just HAD to make one. They immediately discouraged my doing so, which was so weird! I found out a couple days later at a little birthday party they did for me that they had already bought the supplies for us to make them at the party! Such sneaky little girls. :)
Here's Sarah's, after just a few minutes of pinning... so much excitement!
Such sweet friends!
I'm a teacher, but you'd never guess by my yucky chalkboard penmanship! But I love this sign because I'll be able to change it for each holiday and event happening. How many times have I been hosting a shower or meeting, and had someone knocking and knocking on the door without my hearing it!? I'm stoked about this quick and easy piece!
All I used was:
one fat quarter
one rectangular board (mine came from the picture slot of a wood frame from JoAnn's)
thread and machine
Step 1: Cut fabric into five 1 and 3/4 inch strips. Then sew each strip to the next to make one long strip. Press, and finish all edges.
Step 2: Baste (or stitch a long stitch) down the middle of the strip. Take the bottom thread, and pull it to gather fabric into a ruffle.
Place it around the border of the chalkboard and decide how tight to pull the ruffles. Attach the ruffles with hot glue, and you're ready!
I fell in love, and did my own version for Valentines Day! It's dimensions are 72" x 14" made with burlap, muslin, bias tape, and 4 different coordinating fabrics. Very easy, just takes some time. I love how it turned out!
So much ruffley joy!
