Okay so sometimes it's so hard to decide where to put a topic so I hope this is the right place!

I've been on a great mission for a long time now to de-stash my scrap fabric bin, and with as many projects as I've done, it's still full!!!! I've made journals, tissue covers, kanzashi flowers and now these wreaths. They are super easy to do and are a great way to de-stash. I love them so much I plan on making a bunch for Christmas and giving them to family and the smaller size would be perfect for hanging on the tree or wherever else you'd like!

All I did was used floral wire for the base. I created a circle and wrapped wire around until it was sturdy enough. Then I cut fabric into small strips and tied them to the wire frame. After I tied them all I trimmed it up a bit so it was more even and then attached a ribbon to hang it and done! This one I will show you was made using scraps of fleece. This one was about 6inches wide. You can make them bigger or smaller all depending on the size you make the wire frame. More on my blog http://linzcrafts.blogspot.com/2010/10/mini-wreath.html

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

I bet if you stacked them up with the circles getting smaller as you went, it would make a great tree. just a thought...
