Pottery Barn Style Moss Wreath with Cloth Rosettes





I found some cool moss ribbon this spring at Meijer and got inspired to make a spring wreath. I later saw the tutorial for this same wreath on the copycatcrafts blog and found out it was similar to ones sold in Pottery Barn. Well, this one will only cost you around $5 to make, or you can go buy one for $49 at Pottery Barn-your choice!

First,I made the base by tracing two circles into a doughnut shape onto a pizza box and cut them out.
Then,I then wrapped the ribbon tightly around the circles to cover all of the cardboard. I actually didn't need to use any glue because the ribbon texture stuck to itself.

  

I recently discovered making cloth rosettes and am officially addicted! They are so easy and the variety of colors, textures and uses is almost limitless. I made all of mine from fabric using old shirts and ribbon I found around the house.

I recently discovered making cloth rosettes and am officially addicted! (This cool blog called Homemade Ginger had a wreath similar to the one I made and she added some rosettes and twigs to hers-which inspired me too!) They are so easy and the variety of colors, textures and uses is almost limitless. I made all of mine from fabric using old shirts and ribbon I found around the house.

First, cut or tear a long strip of fabric. Then, begin rolling tightly, then roll and twist into a circle, glue gunning into place as needed.




To finish, I glued pin backs to these and stuck them to the wreath. I plan on making new ones and changing out the colors according to the seasons of the year, just for fun and variety!
