Add a little flower power to your front entry with a shag petal wreath. It is easy to make and costs very little in materials.
picture frame hook
(1) yard of white shag fur fabric
(1) spool of wire-edge sheer purple ribbon (2/5" wide x 10 yards)
(1) floral and craft ring (18")
mixed-size purple buttons (we used about 200)
Add a simple hook for hanging to the back of the wood wreath form.
Draw three or four flower-petal shapes on cardboard. Cut out the shapes and then use those as templates to trace more petals on the cardboard, so you'll have several of each size. Make about 28 to 32 pieces altogether; lay them around the ring to make sure you have enough.
Lay the cardboard petals on the backside of the fabric then trace the shape onto the fabric. Cut the petal shapes out of the fabric, leaving about a 1/4" around the outside of the edge.
