DIY fall wreath (hooty-hoo!)

Maybe Fall will come faster if there is a wreath waiting for it on our front door? Yes? I thought so too :)
What you need:
wreath (i used the same on from THIS project, just stripped the fabric off!)
old flannel shirts
piece of cardboard
scissors
straight pins
chalkboard spraypaint
(not pictured) spray adhesive
Photobucket
cut strips out of your flannel shirts. i used three different patterns and only used the sleeves- it was PLENTY! (save the bodies of the flannel shirts for a FUN guest post tutorial coming to ya next week!)
Photobucket
wrap the flannel around the wreath and stick the pins in them. Make one side of your wreath the “front” and one the “back”. Do all of your pinning on the back.
Photobucket
Photobucket
continue until your entire wreath is covered in flannel strips.
Photobucket
now, cut out an owl (or some other shape, you decide!) shape
Photobucket
Photobucket
grab your chalkboard spray paint and spray 2 coats on the front.
Photobucket
while that’s drying, make some cute flannel rosettes out of your leftover fabric strips.
Photobucket
attach them on the wreath with straight pins.
Photobucket
add some flannel to your hooty to make him have wings and a belly.
Photobucket
and attach to your wreath with hot glue! Add a loop of flannel at the top, and hang from a command hook on your front door.

  1. Love the idea of using the flannel! Very cute!

  2. OMG!!!! So so so cute!!! Can you share a quickie tutorial on how to make rosettes? I’m sure it’s a breeze? Do you just twist the fabric? I am not crafty, so I have no clue how to do this!!! Love your creativity!

  3. Aw very cute!

  4. I LOVE this!!!!
    I have been meaning to pick up a couple of flannel shirts when out thrifting but I keep forgetting! I really want to make some pillow covers! I will have to try out this!! Thanks Caroline!!

  5. So clever!!! Love it!!! But it rains and snows here alot so a fabric wreath would not be good on our front door! Maybe inside though… I got a few spots that need to be more festive!

    Now… I need flannel shirts…. who has extra shirts/scraps to send me? *wink*

  6. Very pretty! Love how it’s not the typical orange and black! Good idea! Also your reminded me that there are these things called, um, thimbles! I need to use them more often instead of messing up my fingers. : )
