March Wreath.

Welcome to another Made By Me for Monday! Before I share what I made this weekend, have YOU entered for a FREE 3 Month Ad Space on Paisley Passions??? YOU SHOULD! CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS! Good Luck!!!


Made By Me for Monday!!!
This year I decided that I am going to make a new wreath for every month of the year.  In January, I made my WINTER WREATH.  In February I made my BLACK AND WHITE POLKA DOT WREATH.  Today, I am going to share my March wreath :)

Since March is when we celebrate St. Patty's Day, I knew I wanted a wreath that reflected the "feeling" of St. Patty's Day, without all the well, er, how do I say it?  Um, without all the tackiness of it.  Sorry, I don't want to offend anyone!   It's just that sometimes St. Patty's decor can get a little bit gaudy.  Which can be super fun for a party, just not what I wanted on my front door!  :)


So here is what I came up with for my version of a March wreath:


Supplies I started with: foam wreath, zippers, ric rac, material

I tore the material into strips and wrapped it around the wreath leaving the torn edges exposed.
Next, I took the zippers and made them into rosettes using my glue gun.  I didn't do a tutorial on the flowers because it seems like EVERYONE is making them.  They are pretty easy to make :)  I added the flowers to the wreath with my glue gun and then looped a piece of zipper around the top of the wreath to give me something to hang it with.






There you have it!  My version of a wreath for March.  What do you think???


After hanging it on my front door, I just kept thinking that it didn't look quite big enough.  I have a really tall door and the wreath was being swallowed up by it!  Then I remembered that I had a frame in my storage closet that I kept meaning to do something with! :)  Oh HAPPY day!!!

Frame from my storage closet :)

I glued some felt strips on the back of the frame with my glue gun so that it won't scratch my door.
Then I took some more strips of fabric and used them to hang the wreath in the center.  I added a bow on the top and hung it on the door.  VOILA!  No more wreath being swallowed up by the size of my door.  Now it looks just right :)

I will be joining in some of these wonderful LINKY PARTIES HERE this week!  

I hope you come back and join in my parties too!
