DIY Muslin Rosette Wreath

Our first Craft Day was a success! We managed to fit seven people and tons of crafting stuff in our small living room and dining room yesterday! I am pretty stoked about a possible Craft Day every other month. Here is what I made!

I made a rosette wreath based off this one at Domestifluff. The only changes I made were the following:

  • I used a floral foam wreath instead of a rounded edge one.
  • I worked in sections instead of doing the edges first.
  • I used muslin instead of foam. It was super easy to cut out several at once which made the process go by faster.
I know the muslin will fray over time and I am fine with that. When it gets to the perfect fray-ness, I will get some anti-fray spray for fabric and spray it. Then it will be perfect always. :)

I didn't take any step by step photos because the tutorial above already had pretty excellent ones. I recommend you check theirs out! Plus, there really wasn't a whole lotta room and it was a snowy, darkish day out. Not the best tutorial lighting. 

I also picked a small sized foam wreath, since it was my first wreath-making attempt. As a result, it looks a little small on the front door but it will do for now!

  2. This is so cute! I am just wondering how many yards of fabric you needed to use? I have one of the small foam wreaths from the dollar store!

    1. Thanks Drea! As for yardage, it really depends on how wide your fabric is. Domestifluff recommends around 2 1/2 yards but I used a little less. It also depends on how full you want your wreath to be.

  5. I LOVE this! I've been wanting to make one like this since I first got onto Pinterest, but I've been doubtful that it will actually turn out. I'll definitely be making one in the near future!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Julie! Didn't know you blogged. :) Love your background on your Sassy Seminarian blog! Very cute!

      You should definitely make one! It is super easy, just time consuming. A friend of mine was making one too and she describes herself as not an artsy person at all. Let me know when you make it! I would love to see it!
