Homemade Holiday Wreath

I would like to put it out there that this post is not about food. I know. But hear me out.

I saw a blog post on the cutest wreath idea and immediately felt compelled to make it. And after one trip to Spool, a craft night with friends, a couple slices of fig-pine-nut-basil-gorgonzola pizza, and my first ever watch of White Christmas, I had my very own.

I might have to make one for every season.

This wreath really was a snap to make. And raiding the scraps bin at Spool meant that it was inexpensive too. All together, this little puppy put me back about $10. And if you already have a lot of scrap fabric of your own, you're ahead of the curve!

Just a side note that I didn't use thumbtacks, as the directions on the blog post I found suggested. Instead I used long sewing pins (the kind with the little balls on top) — they hold really nice! 

Okay, now back to cookies. I promise! 


  1. Very, very cute!! Hit Eve up - she can make wreaths for the world!! ;-) Merry Christmas!

  2. Thanks everyone! Give it a was so easy! xox

  3. This is a great wreath - and I'd never know it was easy by looking at it. It has a designer-esque feel to it. Like something Macy's might charge $75 for ;)


One of my favorite things about blog-dom is the dialogue that comes from it. Tell me what you think!
