It's time for another Monthly DIY Challenge! This month's theme was "wreaths" and to be honest I'm not really a wreath kind of girl. I'm also not one to back out of a challenge, so I bit the bullet and threw something together.
Is it even a surprise that I ended up using my favorite flannel? I've used this same red and gray flannel throughout this year's Christmas decorating and don't think I'll ever get sick of it. I mean really, what's cozier than soft flannel? Add in the pop of red and you have the perfect combination.
I started by wrapping some leftover burlap around a simple embroidery hoop. I love that these little wood hoops have so many great uses other than cross stitching.
I thought it looked kind of plain and needed a pop of red, so you guessed it, I grabbed some flannel! I cut down about an inch then tore my flannel into strips to fray the edges. You can always cut the flannel with scissors, but I like the look of raggedy, frayed edges.
To be completely honest, I'm not sure I love it as much as I hoped I would. I do think it's pretty, it's just not my taste. So, down it will come and my simple boxwood wreath will go back in it's place. Maybe I'll have better luck with the next challenge :)
