Let me tell you how this fun little wreath came to be.
My dog got sick because she chewed a plastic soda bottle. My OTHER dog's bed, therefore, had to be washed. The cover comes right off for washing, however, the inside needed washing, too, and, well, it came out kind of lumpy and a lot less FLUFFY. (Be sure to read the word FLUFFY as though you are Agnes from Despicable Me ever. single. time. It will just make your day more fun. Trust me on this one.) SOOOOO....The Hubbums decided to upcycle some old pillows that were in the trunk in the basement and so he promptly unstuffed them and used the batting to make a new inside for Maggie's bed. And NOW it is SO FLUFFY!!!!! WELLLLLLL....that left a couple of empty pillows....hmmmm...not sure they could really be called pillows anymore, but you know. WELL, I couldn't just let THOSE go in the trash, now could I? Nope. Nosirreeebob.
...the fabric wreath. I promptly plopped myself on the couch with a pair of pinking sheers and the pillow casings and cut lots and lots and lots and lots of small strips from the fabric.
Then, I grabbed a white wire coat hanger and tied lots and lots and lots and lots of small strips of cut fabric onto the hanger after shaping it into a lovely wreath shape. *Be sure to bend a hook or loop into the top for hanging!*
THEN...I added a sparkly red ribbon because I happen to like red Lots and lots and lots AND because I figure Valentine's day is coming AND I can always change the ribbon for the seasons AND 'cause I like it THAT'S WHY!!!!
And now I have a fabulous, simple, wonderful upcycled fabric wreath. And I love it. Lots.
And lots and lots.
