Thursday Repost: Vintage & Rustic Wreath


For my friend Izzy’s shower, I wanted to create some bridal shower decorations that she could use in her home later if she wanted to.  This vintage and rustic wreath not only looked great as a focal point for the food table, but will also look fabulous on their door, welcoming everyone into their home.

  • satin fabric
  • lace
  • felt
  • chipboard letter
  • sewing pattern, newspaper, or sheet music
  • Mod Podge

Game Plan:

1.  Begin with a plain twig wreath.

I got mine at Hobby Lobby for $4.99 and used a 40% off coupon.

2.  Hot glue lace doilies to the wreath.

I laid out my pattern of flowers and doilies on the wreath before I glued anything down.
