Wreaths !

Hi everyone !

So I saw this idea on welke.nl for a nice fall wreath. I liked it so much, that I decided to make one myself, inspired by this picture.

This is what it turned out to be:

wreath-1

It’s really easy to make. This is what you’ll need:

  • felt
  • wool
  • wire (I used textile yarn)
  • a styrofoam wreath
  • pins
  • scissors
  • glue (I used a hot glue gun)

I simply started by winding the textile yarn around the styrofoam wreath. On the back, I secured them with some pins to make sure they stay in place.

Next I cut out diamond shapes form the felt. I drew them myself by using a ruler, but you can also use a pattern to do that. I then glued the felt onto the wreath.

Next I took my wool and started winding around the  wreath. To secure them, I again used some pins on the back.

To finish it off, I cut out a felt owl and glued it on. You can also use flowers or butterflies or whatever you want.

So that was it! I hope you liked it. Let me know what you think and if you ever make one yourself, show me! If you want to make other (fall)wreaths, here’s a link of some inspiration I found: http://www.bystephanielynn.com/2012/10/fifty-fall-wreath-ideas-inspiration-for-the-entire-autumn-season.html

Have fun!

Decorating with flowers – part three

Hi there!

Time for a third part of the decorating with flowers – series. This time, it’s another fall-piece I made with beautiful roses in fall-colors. I just took a piece of wood, put a flower arrangement that I made on it (using roses and ivy) and finished it off with some pinecones, chestnuts and a branch. And this what it turned out!

It’s really autumny and it fits every interior. So what do you think of it?

Decorating with flowers – part two

Hi there!

I’m back with part two of decorating with flowers. Again, this was inspired by the decoration course I took. We made this cute flower arrangement with hydrangeas and this is the result:

Tadaaa !

So proud of it! Now, it’s been a few weeks since I made it, so the colors have really changed by now. They’re not as bright anymore. I found it perfect for fall, with the changed colors. So I decided to change it up a bit and make it more ‘fall’. Here’s what I made of it:

Et voilà!

I don’t know which one I prefer. The original one was really nice with the bright pink and red. But this one I like too, because it’s so seasonal and cosy. Which one do you prefer? Tell me in the comments!

See you next time!
