Hello there lovely Buttoneers! As it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas and everything is so beautifully festive, I wanted to pop in and share a last minute Christmas craft with you. Then I thought, why not make a good ole’ Tutorial Tuesday and show you how to make your own! – Remember those!? Admittedly, it has been a while since my last Tutorial Tuesday, mainly down to keeping on track with my Create 30 blog challenge makes! I have even made a new banner! Hooray! I am so much happier with it than the last one and think it is a lovely, fresh new start to feeling inspired to make more future tutorials! Fingers Crossed! Also, this way I can pop in on a Tuesday instead of my usual Thursday blog posting schedule – it feels very strange!
I love making these tutorials and even more so, love seeing you having a go and sending me photos of your versions.
Be sure to tag me on Instagram as @racheleliston so I can take a peek!
I really love this Christmas craft as it is a great excuse to use up all of those space-filling scraps of fabric or fat quarters (and a really great excuse to go and buy new ones to replace them eh!?) If you have followed my little creative corner of the blogosphere for a while you may remember my Fabric Scrap Christmas Garland? Well, this dose of crafty goodness is really similar and lovely to pair together with the garland in your festive home decor, not to mention quick, easy and inexpensive to make – What more could you want!?
So without further ado…here is my Tutorial Tuesday – Fabric Scrap Christmas Wreath D.I.Y. tutorial…
Voila! You are finished! So there you go and now you know! I am super happy with how it turned out. I really love the black edges on the red fabric and frayed them all a bit more to show off the contrast in colour and allow the snowy white fabric to stand out.
The red satin fabric really catches the light and looks rather fancy and extremely festive!
I am so glad I made the last minute addition of the little felt holly leaves and the red button berry – it really finishes the wreath off nicely and brings it all together, making the frayed fabric look a lot more deliberate. I love how the crisp lines of the Holly are so different to the edges of the fabric – this works together really well. I would definitely add some more texture next time too, maybe adding some lace for a real feminine edge like I did with my Fabric Scrap Christmas Garland a few years ago.
What do you think? Did you have a go at making it yourself? What colours would you choose? Would you try different textured fabric or did you keep them the same? I would love to hear all about it and any other Christmas crafts and festive makes you have been creating this year!
Don’t forget to tag me in your photos if you had a go at making this fabric scrap Christmas wreath or any of my other tutorials crafty makes so I can see them and check out my other Tutorial Tuesday posts for seasonal doses of crafty goodness!
