SUPPLIES: foam wreath / linen (12″ x 72″) / scissors / sewing machine / hot glue gun
STEP ONE: cut strips of linen (2.5″ x 72″)
tip: fold your fabric to make cutting strips easier
STEP TWO: wrap one strip of linen around wreath
hot glue to hold.
STEP THREE: prepare ruffles
First, with right sides together, stitch two strips together end to end to make one long piece.
Next, with your sewing machine set to the longest stitch, sew alongside one edge (about 1/8″ in).
STEP FOUR: make ruffle
gently pull one thread to gather the fabric.
STEP FIVE: wrap wreath with ruffle
run a small bead of hot glue along first edge to hold in place, then wrap and glue to hold.
STEP SIX: finish
Trim the end of the ruffle and glue cut edge to hold.
Such a simple and inexpensive project (my favorite criteria!) that gives a fun look for spring.

Hi Emily! Where did you find the linen? I tried Joann and hobby & they don’t carry it! Does it have a name?
I cut up a piece of IKEA curtain for this project. There should be linen in the apparel section of your fabric store. Sorry you are having trouble finding it!
it’s lovely. Pinned to my lets get crafty board. Hugs
Amanda, on Emily’s Daily Photos for today (3/24/15) she has a photo of the fabric. Here’s the link from the photo – https://instagram.com/p/0a8TtYDoKH/
I did not inherit my mother’s sewing gene…Emily, remember us, the sewing challenged
Would you mind telling me what the fabrics are on the desk? Thanks!
Love the blue and white fabric in the wreath pic where did you get it?
The fabric is from Minted.com’s new line!
Is the background of the wreath wallpaper or stencil?
The walls are hand-painted (I call it painted wallpaper). Tutorial found here: https://jonesdesigncompany.com/decorate/painted-wallpaper-a-tutorial/
