New Fall Wreath. Makes me want to get a new door.

I have never tried my hand at making wreaths, because I always assumed I'd be terrible at it.  (That's the spirit, right???)

Well I just got tired of the one I've had hanging on my front door, for forever, and decided it was time for a change.

I really like the look of the yarn-wrapped wreaths.  So cute!  But have you ever wrapped a wreath form in yarn?  It is a major pain in the patoot.  I did it once and vowed never to do it again!  I mean, I'm all about tedious crafting and all, but please.

So a yarn wreath was out.  But fabric...fabric I could do!  So a-ripping I went.

Did you know you can rip fabric in straight lines, if it's a woven material (not knit)?  Major time-saver for me.  Plus, it gives you a pleasantly frayed edge.

Well, I didn't do a tutorial (because the blog world needs no more tutorials about much of anything these days), but I did take some finished pics.

Love my new wreath!  The only issue is, it doesn't fit between the door & the screen/storm door.  The flowers get smushed.  So at present, it's hanging on the inside of the door, looking at us.  It really does make me want to get a nice, new door.

I think I'll put that on the priority list.  It can go on the bottom.  #586 in line.
