Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • 1/2 yard stripe fabric
  • 3/4 yard solid red (two-sided) fabric
  • Straw wreath (keep plastic on)
  • Sewing pins
  • Fabric glue
  • Screwdriver
  • Cutting mat
  • Ruler
  • Clear quilter ruler
  • Roller blade
  • Iron & pressing surface
  • Black cross-stitch fabric
  • Black cross-stitch thread
  • Needle
  • Gold painter’s pen
  • Scissors

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cut solid fabric: Iron all the fabric. Using a cutting mat, roller blade, and a ruler (or clear quilter ruler), cut the solid fabric into 5"×5" squares. Note: For the wreath to look full, it takes almost every square to fill in the front and sides.
  2. Cut stripe fabric: Cut four 2-1/2" strips (across the stripe).
  3. Wrap: Using three strips of 2-1/2" fabric, pin one end of the stripe fabric to the back of the wreath and start wrapping, pulling or relaxing the fabric to match the stripes up on each wrap around. (Tip: small stripe fabric is easier to match up since the gap between each is smaller.) Use touches of fabric glue on the back of the wreath to secure any ravels or edges.
  4. Ruffle punch: Using a screw driver, punch the fabric (from the center) into the remaining sections of wreath. Fill in the entire front and sides until the wreath is no longer visible. It should be very thick and once done punch any stray pieces in further to even out the ruffle.
  5. Hanger: Use the fourth strip of 2-1/2" fabric as a ribbon to hang the wreath. (Note: edges can be surged with red thread or regular solid black ribbon.)
  6. Cut blocks: Using the lines in the fabric as a guide, cut four 1-1/2"×2" pieces. (Tip: Use the first as a guide for the others to make sure they’re consistent. Follow the paths in the fabric so the edges don’t look frayed.)
  7. Cut triangle: Find the center point and cut out a small triangle from the bottom, creating bunting. Again, use the first as a guide so that all four pieces are consistent.
  8. Paint: Write an “X” in dots on two and an “O” in dots on the other two. (Tip: using a piece of paper cut to the same size, write the phrase to get a good idea of spacing.)
  9. String: Using a needle and cross-stitch thread, hang each piece of bunting and move along thread for spacing.
  10. Hang: For a wreath embellishment, use fabric glue to adhere the bunting to the wreath. Or wrap the bunting around two lollipop sticks for a Valentine’s Day cake bunting.
