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

  • 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

How To Make the Mini Ruffle Wreaths

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 4

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

Step 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.
