Now for our review. Today's craft comes from a fairly new blog called Multi Cultural Crafts. Nelda started blogging just this May. She has done some really cute things already and I am excited to see what else she comes up with. She has done some super cute graduation crafts.
4th of July wreath.
Okay now for some tips.
First the tighter you make your ruffles the more fabric you will need, I made mine a bit looser then as I put them on the wreath I pushed the ruffles to the front, so my back looks really blah, but the front is cute and ruffled. The top ruffle is gathered too tight the bottom ruffle is just right in my opinion.
I also kinda need to re-do part of the wreath but I really don't want to go to the store again. You see I bought the material at my local Wally World (it's about the only store in town). I ended up not having enough so I had to go back. You know Wally World does not have the biggest selection of fabric so I wasn't too concerned about matching exactly. I got there to pick up a little more and I thought to myself as I was looking at the fabrics "I thought I bought kinda a creamy white last time but I don't see anything creamy so I must not have." And I bought the white. I got it home and I was correct, my original fabric is creamy and my new fabric is white white. See.
I kinda lost track of time between my chocolate think time and my having to return to the store but I would guestimate around 2 hrs.
Fabric- about $3.00
You need about 1/3 yd of blue and 3/4 yd for both white and red.
So this wreath cost me a whopping $4.50. You can't beat that.
Happy Crafting. I will be back later this week for some tutu tips for you with the tutu drive.
