Stampin' Up! Deck the Halls Fabric Fun
Now if you've never learnt to sew or are keen to use fabric in a project from our lovely range, but can't think of where or how to use it then this might just give you some ideas and the only sewing involved was to attach the small bows. You could even glue them into position and so it's a 'no sew' project and can decorate your home all year depending upon the accessories and fabric you use. I've used our Stampin' Up! Deck the Halls (121716) fabric which lends itself very well to this festive time of year, but Flirtatious or Beau Chateau could be used for an Easter wreath decorated with eggs and springtime flowers and bows.
It's easy to do too! Cut strips of fabric, and I found that pinking shears worked best, about 2.5cm wide and 20cm long. Then work your way around a wire wreath ring just tying the strips onto it. You can add whatever accessories you choose either by glueing or sewing them on. My accents include cherry cobbler striped grograin and seam binding ribbon, victoria crochet trim and antique brads.
It's easy and you need at least one pack of fabric. I've used approx 11/2, but it's personal choice. You can even make this one watching the TV while your dinner cooks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I guess it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
