Happy Valentine's Day! The day is almost done here, I had a little trouble finding enough light to snap a pic of this wreath I barely finished in time. You might recognize it as a wreath Ikea carried for Christmas. I bought one for half off after the holidays, and spent some time brainstorming what to do with it. Finally decided to make a version of this wreath using fabric strips. Pretty simple really, just cut the fabric with a rotary cutter and start tying!
Note - to minimize any sort of fire hazard, treat the fabric first with a homemade spray consisting of 5 parts boric acid (some drugstores carry this), 6 parts Borax and 100-150 parts warm water. Spray liberally and let dry.
I'm quite happy with how this turned out, it looks cute either lit or not. I used good old red gingham and added a yellow homespun here and there to brighten up the palette. It is now hanging happily over the mantle in my bedroom.
Hope your Valentine's Day is a happy one!
ps to Ro..... SMOOCHIES!!!
