When I was out looking for new Christmas decorations I noticed a lot of black, red and silver together and I fell in love. I wanted to do my whole house in Black, red and silver, but only managed to create this wreath. I am not going to lie it was VERY time consuming to make. I do love how it turned out. I was going to make more red flowers to go all the way around the wreath but I got a little lazy. Maybe I will finish it up next year.
I started off with a dollar store wreath. I bought 1/4 yard black duck cloth and 1 yard red duck cloth. I cut the black cloth into strips and wrapped it around the wreath. The hard part was the red poinsettia flowers. I took a small Tupperware lid and traced the circle onto the red cloth. You need 10 circles to create one flower and I made 5 flowers, so that was 50 circles to trace and cut out! Not so much fun my friends.
I used this tutorial to create my fabric poinsettia. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gecQrb1fzIk
I had to modify it a little to create a fuller look by using 10 circles for the flowers. When I cut the petals I made them pointy.
Lots of hot glue later I finally ended up with 5 flowers. I glued them close together on the wreath added a silver ribbon and called it good! Not too shabby!!
