I’ve had this amazing vintage 70’s fabric sitting around waiting for a project.  I found the fabric at a yard sale, and it reminded me of my childhood bedroom.

 

Then I saw Jenna’s Lilly Pulitzer Inspired Wreath.   Check it out over at Rain on a Tin Roof.  I knew I had my project and I dropped a note to Jenna to let her know how inspired and excited I was.

The Supplies

 

The only thing I had to purchase was a wreath form.  I had the fabric and other miscellaneous supplies.

The Project

 

I laid the form on top of the fabric to make sure I had enough.

I cut a hole in the middle, and started spray-gluing the fabric around the form.  I went back and used the hot glue gun for the bigger pieces folded over.

I hot glued the adorable butterfly, and added a pretty yellow ribbon.  What used to be someone’s curtains is now adorning our front door.  Don’t you love re-purposing vintage materials?

I was going to add some additional flowers, but I think this butterfly holds his own.

    My mom had the silver star burst with pearl center brooch. I wore it for many years. I retired mine last year…silver was fading. Thanks for bringing back memories.

    Flower Child……Oh my goodness Holly, that material looks just like the wall paper in your bedroom at home! “Groovy” idea to make the wreath!! Each time you enter the front door you can pretend you’re 15 again!

    Perfect wreath! I remember those colors! My mom used to make my clothes in elementary school with similar patterns.
