repurpose fabric scraps: door wreath

By  | 

I had this sad, old, hay wreathy thing sitting in my crafting supplies pile.
Just sitting there.
Looking pathetic.
I took pity and found an idea on Pinterest…

don’t get excited…it’s just my old wreath with rags tied on.
And a cut up sweater.

then I hung some butterflies from old hardware and tied that on to the wreath with yarn…so sweet!

I’m loving it.
What do you got laying around your house that you can use?

Til Next time…

    Hmmm. I have to see what I have laying around because I need a wreath. (Got all my spelling correct and the right words used in this reply, unlike the last one).


    • Janel

      March 22, 2012 at 9:51 am

      :) Man, you screwed up your spelling and words on Hating Martha. Gosh…imperfection just can’t happen here. I bet you have something you can use. If your house is anything like mine…I got all kinds of random crafty stuff. for no good reason.

    Fantastic! I love to redo something instead of having to rebuy. hmmm July idea for us?

    • Janel

      March 22, 2012 at 9:41 am

      Hmmm…what to redo so you don’t have to rebuy? Always a good question!

    Looks great! I can not begin to tell, or rather confess, to what I have lying around my house…might need an intervention! :)

    • Janel

      March 22, 2012 at 9:40 am

      The demise of crafty bloggers…hoards of “supplies”. But, sometimes inspiration strikes! As I know it has for you…you have some seriously great crafts!
