DIY Thanksgiving Mini Ruffled Wreaths

Happy November my friends!  Halloween is done and we are now onto the gratitude month.  There are so many things I am grateful for.  I realize how blessed my life is and I am super grateful to share bits of it with you.  Thank you to those readers that literally come daily to check out what I do.  You mean the world to me.

Today I am making a trio of mini ruffled wreaths along with some Thanksgiving Chalkboard art in conjunction with a Fall Craft Photo Challenge put on by Sizzix!  I partnered with Jo from Where Women Cook and Amy from Positively Splendid to showcase a fun fall craft using our Sizzix machines.

My name is Beckie, and I am obsessed with wreaths. I showed you a Halloween Felt Flower Wreath using this similar technique.  Instead of using a fabric flower die I used a circle die from Sizzix with my Vagabond Machine.  If you are curious about this machine I wrote a whole post about it here

Supplies:

Fabric

Sizzix Vagabond Machine or similar (or a lot of patience and a pair of scissors to cut circles out)

Circle Die

3 mini Styrofoam wreaths (5 7/8” wide)

Styrofoam tools or similar pointy object

Ribbon (I used burlap and lace ribbon from Hobby Lobby)

Hot Glue Gun

 

1.  I chose 15 fat quarters that I had left over from a fabric pile a company sent me a while back.  And then I just sent about 12 layers of fabric at a time through my Vagabond machine with the circle die creating a truckload of fabric circles.  I used the largest circle on the die.

2.  In order to not show the whiteness of the back of the fabric I put two fabric circles back to back and then pushed them into the Styrofoam wreath with the stick tool.  The Styrofoam creates a grab with the fabric and the pieces stay tucked inside the wreath.

3.  Then I just paid attention to the varying of colors and kept grabbing two circles and pushing them into the wreath form until I was done with all three mini wreaths.

4.  Next I took a loop of burlap and lace ribbon around the wreaths and taped them to the back of a chalkboard frame.

5.  Then I made some bows out of the ribbon and hot glued them onto the hanging ribbon.

Lastly I made a Thanksgiving chalkboard art on the frame.  I love how this little spot turned out for the gratitude month.

Check out my Be Grateful pallet art.  It is super easy and cost me less than $10!

    Absolutely love this project, Beckie! I have a Cricut but would love to try the Sizzix! I would love to link up but does it have to be specifically a Sizzix project? Thanks!

    What size circles did you use? I will be cutting by hand.

  3. These are absolutely adorable! Love that they are mini and can hang anywhere throughout the house. Can’t wait to get started on mine! I featured this today on my blog! Thanks for sharing your cute project!
