You know all those fabric scraps you have just lying around looking pretty?
I declare that we should show them off. I had some Ikat fabric mocking me that had a calling as a superstar.
I love how fabrics can take on a whole new look when you wrap them. I scrounged around my craft stash and dug up two embroidery hoops. I knew they would come in handy eventually, although I thought it would be for when I took the embroidery plunge.
I began by wrapping the fabric around the larger hoop, then found a complimentary fabric to wrap the smaller hoop. Then I hit a wall. Not a real one, although it wouldn’t surprise anyone thanks to my clutzy nature. I wasn’t sure how to attach the two hoops. The answer to all crafting problems is either Mod Podge or Hot Glue, can I get an Amen.
So from attaching the hoops together to bedazzling the wreath with fabric flowers my thumbs took a piping hot glue beating.
The whole thing took about an hour and now I have dreams of thousands of fabric covered wreaths hanging from our tree in the backyard. Beckoning the birdies to perch for a minute. That would be my happy place, until they pooped on my new Adirondack chairs. Then I would bust the broom out and hop on the crazy train. Choo Choo.
Have you been dreaming of bird heaven in your backyard?
