Anyway....as for the wreath. The supplies are a foam wreath, a glue gun, pins, and three strips for 4 inch by 70 inch burlap fabric, and then whatever you want for flower-ee acceories.
You take one strip and wrap it around the wreath (secure with glue at the start and finish, don't wrap too closely together or it won't make it all the way around). Take the other two strips, and sew a very loose line up one side of the other two burlap strips. Pull to ruffle. Pin it in place (I pinned the two ends together, and then laid it across the wreath in a circular form.
OK...and I thought this big no sew flower was so stinking clever! Taylor came up with this process, and I'm pretty sure I want to open a fabric flower shop.
All you have to do is cut a piece of fabric....about 20 inches by 8 inches, grab a pipe cleaner.
Throw some lint and misc dog hair on your floor. This is necessary to the success for your project, just trust me. If you don't have a dog, you can borrow one of mine for a week or 15. Let me know.
Take your glue gun, and run a line down the length of the inside of the fabric about 1/2 inch shy of the halfway mark. I'm point to the general area you'd run the line (I couldn't photograph the process, glue dries to fast).
You should have an opening a little wider than your pipe cleaner now. Run it down the length of your glued fabric.
My wreath got a red flower. Once you place this guy on a wreath, or a pin, you can glue it down to the shape you want it. Case in point.
Ultimately, I added a button to the center of this one, but that's because I am an unsuccessful member of bottons-on-every-project-anonymous. They are cute by themselves as well. This brings me to flower two....burned edge poppies, that tutorial was yesterday, but I can't talk about fire much more this week because there is a physiciatrist somewhere with a clipboard, just waiting to check a few more boxes off before they show up at my door. I grabbed one more (dotted) flower, already made at Hobby lobby, and some fluffy feather stuff (also from Hobby Lobby). Add tag...
I then I hung this in my kitchen.
I'm off to make another wreath...my attic is poorly neglected in the wreath department.
