My Life of Travels and Adventures: Polka Dot Rosette Wreath

Polka Dot Rosette Wreath

12 May 2014

After taking down my Easter door decorations, our front door sat empty for several weeks before I finally go the urge to make something for it.

I wanted to go for a spring-y feel so I went with polka dots.  I am not really sure if polka dots yell spring but I thought they would be fun.
I went with a new-for-me technique for the flowers and really like how the whole thing turned out.

Supplies:
Foam Wreath
Twine
Hot Glue
White Paint
Scraps of Fabric
Straight Pins
Round Foam Brush

Instructions:
1. Wrap the twine tight around the foam wreath.  Secure the end with a dab of hot glue.
2. Continue wrapping the twine around the wreath until the wreath is completely covered. Secure the end of the twine with a dab of hot glue.  I used the wreath from my St. Patrick's Day wreath which was already wrapped in twine. 
3. Apply the white paint to the round foam brush and stamp circles all over the wreath.  I found that a lot of paint was needed to get good coverage for the circle. 

4. Once the paint has dried, its time for the rosettes.  Start with a 12-18" by 1-1.5" piece of fabric. Knot the one end.  Then twist the fabric and wrap it tightly around the knot.  Continuing until you reach the end of the fabric.  Take the end and tuck it under the rosette.
5. Stick a straight pin through the center of the rosette, through the end of the fabric and into your wreath.
6.  Makes as may rosettes as you desire.  A couple of my larger rosettes needed two straight pins to hold them secure.  
You can also see a video on how to make the rosette's here on Bower Power.
All in all, I really like how the white polka dots look on the twine and the little bit of color that the rosettes give the wreath.
