Blue/Green Turtle Reef Themed Nursery Deco Mesh Ruffle Wreath

My sister-in-law asked me to make a wreath for a friend.  She told me the babies name and the nursery theme.  
I did a little research and came up with this design.  I decided to make a deco mesh ruffle wreath since it would look more reef like.  I added the large wooden "C" and cut the name out of scrapbook paper and attached to the letter.
I was also able to create the turtles and fish out of scrapbook paper with the help of my Silhouette....which I love more and more every day.
Overall think it came out really well. 

This is my third nursery wreath!!

Fall Harvest Multi Colored Burlap Wreath

Celebrate Fall with this Multi-Colored Burlap Ruffle/Circle Wreath

I used Brown, Green, Yellow and Orange Burlap for this wreath. I cut and pinned each piece of burlap to a 14" styrofoam wreath form. I also added a spot of glue to each piece to ensure they all stayed in placed. I did not add or spray anything on the burlap to keep the rustic look with frayed edges.

The center is a wooden harvest pumpkin sign I found at a local department store.

This was my first attempt at using burlap and I am quite pleased with the way it turned out. A little time consuming cutting the burlap but well worth it in the end.

This wreath is made to order and will ship within 3 days after receiving the order.

Jack O Lantern Duo Orange Deco Mesh Wreaths

Happy Halloween!!!

Check out these two cute little guys or gals for that matter.

Two Orange Deco Mesh Jack O Lanterns to brighten up your Halloween Decor. Both of these wreaths were made on an 8" wire wreath form. I topped them off with a few leaves of green deco mesh and green deco flex tubing.

I cut the facial features out of black foam sheeting and attached them to chenille stems. All of the features can be easily repositioned on the wreath.

The finished wreaths measure about 15" wide.

Halloween Spider Web Gray Deco Mesh Wreath with Mini Strobe Light

Happy Halloween!!!

Get your home ready for Halloween with this Gray Deco Mesh Spider Web Wreath with Mini Strobe Light.

For this wreath I used a standard 14" wire wreath form. The form is covered with a double layer of gray deco mesh to give more dimension and create the effect of a large spider web. The center piece is a silver glitter foam spider web that I found at a local department store. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do for this wreath until I found the web. I also added 3 large black glitter spiders.

I also found a mini strobe light and put that in the center for added spooky effect. The light has two settings. One is just a steady flashing strobe and the other is various strobe effects along with spooky sounds. It is difficult to convey it with pictures, but it is pretty cool looking at night.

The completed wreath measures about 22" wide and 9" deep.
Message me if you have an questions.

Pumpkin Deco Mesh Ruffle Wreath

Celebrate Fall with this Pumpkin Deco Mesh Ruffle Wreath!!

I made ruffles with orange and green deco mesh and created a spiral with brown deco mesh for the stem. The wreath was made on a standard 10" wire wreath form.

The completed wreath measures 18" wide and about 21" tall with the stem.

This wreath can easily be changed to a Jack O Lantern with a few additions. If you would prefer that, just email me for details.





Halloween Gray Yarn and Felt Flower Wreath

Happy Halloween!!!

Decorate your front door for Halloween with this Gray Yarn Wreath with Black, Gray and Orange Felt Flowers. The center of the wreath is a black wooden tree and I added a yellow moon in the background.

I made this wreath on a standard 14" styrofoam wreath form. I wrapped the entire wreath with gray yarn. I then made felt flowers to accent the piece. The moon was an afterthought and I am glad I added it because it just kind of enhances the entire piece. 





Ohio State Buckeyes Scarlet and Gray Ruffle Wreath....Custom Order

Ohio State Buckeyes Ruffle Wreath

Another Custom Order for my Ohio Family.  
For this wreath I used Scarlet and Gray Deco Mesh.  I made the center logo by creating a stencil from the actual logo and then cut the pattern out of felt and pieced it together.  Took some work but it was well worth it in the end.  I added footballs, OSU Helmets and a Buckeye Bracelet to accent the piece.
