Purple Wreath

christmascandyApril 20, 2012

I found a wreath form at the TS for 85C. It is like a hamster wheel with "rungs" to tuck fabric into.

I bought a spool of purple tulle in the bridal section at HL 50% off, $3 worth of silk flowers at DT and a spool of lavender ribbon, also from DT.

This is the result:

I just tucked the entire spool (I think it was 20 yards) of tulle into the wire frame, then wired on the flowers and the bow.

Total cost about $8.

TTFN,

Candy

Spring has sprung. I want one of these on my front door. I think I can do it.

Oh Candy, your wreath is so pretty. I've seen them done like this with the wide ribbons. Great idea using tulle. Much cheaper too!

Happy spring.

I may have that kind of wreath form, found at GW a few years ago. Its red. But I never quite figured out what to do with it. If yours is same kind, then now I have an idea thank you very much.

Thanks everybody.

I'm issuing a standing invitation to all my friends here to come shop and or craft together. Just get on the bus and head to Colorado!! LOL Although it would be a ton of fun.

The tulle ribbon was only about 8" wide, not the actual fabric that is a lot wider. The ribbon bow is actually lavender, although it looks almost white in the picture. I guess because it is so sheer, it photographs differently than reality. Because I like lilacs so much, I used a purple silk bush and a purple/white silk bush along with the big purple flowers.

Thanks everyone.

Very pretty, Candy! I don't think I know what a hamster wheel form is?

Kathleen, that is the best way I could think of to describe it. It is a metal form, that looks like a ladder bent into a circle, or a wheel for hamsters to run in without the center supports. Then fabric or ribbon or old neckties (??) just get tucked in between the rungs to make the wreath.
Thanks,
Candy

Hmm, I can picture it, but I don't think I have ever seen one.
Thanks for the explanation!

Candy, I think the wire wreath form you used for your pretty wreath, sounds the ones used for making pine cone wreaths.
