Pretty Wreaths are Like Pearls…

…No Southern girl should ever be without them! I love the way a front door looks with a pretty wreath hanging on it. It can brighten up a house. Just like pearls brighten up a bad day 🙂

*I’m back at blogging and still getting into the swing of remembering to take pictures of everything. Forgive me*

I got a simple grapevine wreath at Mamaw’s rummage sale for $1 and bought some pretty fabrics from JoAnn’s (love JoAnn’s.) I also had some brown and green burlap. I bought the brown with the fabric and had some green left over from my “Sigh No More” kitchen art. Burlap is so cheap and quickly becoming a staple in my crafting.  

I went to work making rosettes. There are so many tutorials out there but Shanty2Chic is one of my favorite blogs and I always go back to their’s.  Except I cheat and don’t iron the fabric first; I just fold as I go and it works just fine.  After I got all my rosettes finished I just laid them out on my grapevine until I found a good look and glued. I used tacky glue but a glue gun would have worked well too!


*Of course I couldn’t neglect a “P”

ON a side note, this little man turns one tomorrow! 


A Sneak Peak

I’ve been working with some fabric to make these…


Come back on Friday to see what I made with them. A project that totaled $1.30 and left me with fabric.

Which rosette is your favorite?

What crafty things will you do with your rosettes?

Rosette Fever

Today, I’m being lazy…. totally lazy. The husband is beside me watching hulu and I”m blog surfing. I’ve got an itch for crafting some cute little rosettes to jazzy up my lamp in the living room. Rosettes are so versatile.

Little Birdie Secrets gives a great tutorial I’ll be using.

Lillyella uses great colors together.


How cute are these baby blues on the brown pump. BrydFyrth on Etsy has rosettes galore!

I’m diggin’ Just a Girl’s blog post on how she transformed her lamp.

Our Daily Chocolate made this adorable headband!

These mustard rosettes from My Sparkle would look great with a plum dress I wear.

This is a headband from Ryah Sofia. The white and pearls speak to my inner southern belle 🙂

20 Something made these adorable Christmas ornaments.

Use this inspiration to make some rosettes of your own. Most people have fabric hanging around the house. This is a great way to use those scraps up!
