DIY Spring Wreath

Instruction now available on youtube, click here.

How about some flowers that don't wither or die?  I made this wreath yesterday in no time at all.  I didn't even make a trip to the fabric or craft store.  I just used scraps of fabric, burlap and felt that I had around the house.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.


I mentioned on facebook last week that I wanted to host a crafting/DIY workshop. The idea is that I would have all or most of the supplies ready, and you could just come and make something fun, cute, or useful. Maybe I can help teach you a new skill or technique.  So, how about we make this Spring Wreath.  In an hour or so, depends on how much chatting and eating we do, you could leave with a cute wreath like this one (or in any color or season you wish).  



So, if you live locally (Bakersfield, CA), are you interested?  Is this something you would like to make?  Leave me a comment.  I want you input.  Would a Saturday morning be good, or would you prefer an weekday evening?  I want to host this first event this coming week.  So tell your friends and "Like" my facebook page  to find out the time and day.    




And if you don't live near by, don't worry, I'll post instructions after the diy workshop on the blog.
BE A FRIEND!  Leave a comment, follow Oleander and Palm by email, PinterestFacebook, or Twitter.


Would you like a youtube video with instructions?  Or are photos what you prefer?  Leave me a comment, I want your input.

  3. Count me in - the wreath is gorgeous Jeran and maybe we could all bring a plate of food? Just a thought. I'll ask my neighbor if she wants to come, she is very crafty.

  11. I love, love, LOVE the color combinations in this wreath. I finished my first yarn wrapped wreath from a tutorial in Better Homes and Gardens and have been looking for other inspirations ever since. I am new to blogging, so I don't know all of the etiquette... but I linked you to my new blog at http://www.quippymyflippygetsdomestic.blogspot.ca/?m=1).
