Last night, I was in Joann's and just couldn't pass up this adorable fuzzy fabric.
So, since it's kinda pricey I was trying to think of what I could do with a small amount. A few weeks ago, during worship, I thought of making a wreath using a fabric tube. Lots of times during worship, my mind wanders to some kind of creative place and this idea just seemed to jump out at me last night.
I have been making wreaths out of foam pipe insulation from Osh thanks to this pin on Pintrest.
(BTW, I must confess that I am COMPLETELY in love with and addicted to Pintrest.)
Tip: I have found that the pipe insulation that works best for me, without kinking, is 3/4 inch with a 3/4 inch wall.
Since the wreath begins life as a tube and not a ring, it worked perfectly to cover it in a fabric tube.
I started with 1/4 of a yard of this fabulous fabric. I folded it right sides together and used my sewing machine to sew the length of the fabric together. I'm sorry, but I didn't take a pic. :(
The last time I bought pipe insulation, I accidentally bought it a size bigger that I usually do. So, it was quite the wrestling match getting my fuzzy fabric tube onto the foam pipe insulation. Hehehe
But, after pulling and tugging for a while, it was a success and I was able to duct tape the ends together to form my wreath. I made some felt flowers and added them. I made a little hanger for the back and tada. Here it is!
I really like it! There is something so wintery about it, which wasn't intended, but makes me happy.
