Making Some NFL Wreaths for the Family to Get the Season Started.
Our family loves football so to get the season started I made each of the kids, their spouses & a few close friends some NFL wreaths of their teams. I thought I'd share them because even if you don't like football you can make other wreaths with different fabric. (Fall, Christmas, Valentines Day, etc....) Their super easy to make. I liked the rough edges so I just used scissors to cut the fabric. I didn't measure anything out I just eyed it all. I made 3 different sizes because I worked with what I had. You cut strips of fabric about 4" across and length of fabric, then you cut into squares about the same. I like the hard Styrofoam wreaths. Then you take a small screwdriver and put in the center of one of your squares and gather it around on wrong side of fabric, dip the pattern side in a little glue if you wish then poke into wreath. I didn't make all of them using glue the fabric went in very tight so I skipped that step. Just continue filling in until your happy with fullness. Mine cost between $3.50 to $6.00 each to make, but I had picked up wreaths on clearance at Target last Halloween for .50 each just to have because I make a lot of wreath for each holiday. I also used some pillow cases I had for the fabric in some. I would say they would cost between $13.00 to $18.00 if you bought fabric on sale & used your 40% off coupons. The NFL fabric is what's expensive but I only used 1/4 of a yard on each side. I also had some of it left over from another project.
