Baby Girl's Rossette Wreath

I made this rossette wreath for my kitchen last week, and since I had a few leftover rosettes, I decided to make one for my Baby Girl's bedroom door.

I used a small wicker type wreath from the Dollar Tree and spray painted it black! It's not perfect, but that's ok since you can't see much of it! It was really too cold to be spray painting, and I kept running into the open garage to squirt it a few times and run back in side repeatedly!!

I used the same white and aqua fabric as the last wreath, and some hot pink felt from the Remnant piles at JoAnn's (my new favorite obsession- searching through remnants!).


The snowflakes are also from JoAnn's and cost a $1 for a bag of them, plus smaller ones. The butterflies are $1 ornaments from Walmart! And the Dream ornament was a gift from a friend a few years back so I'm not sure where that came from! I thought it would look cute here!

The snowflakes are felt "stickers" that I'll remove after winter, and I may just leave this up all year round!

Just wish I had some cuter hangers than the Command ones!


You can see my posts about her room here, here, and here to see the progress I'm making and how this matches her room!

To see how I made the rosettes and where I got this idea, see the link in my earlier post about my other wreath!

Linking up to these linky parties (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE browing through linkies for great ideas! That's how I found this one!)

Fleece Rose Wreath

(Words will be few in this post as one hand is holding a drooling baby!!)

Saw this wreath in a linky party back in October and HAD to make it!!

Ellen makes lots of great wool/felted projects and more! Check her out!

I pretty much followed her great tutorial, free handing the rosettes after I got the hang of it! I used fleece instead bc it was on sale at Hobbly Lobby and was in the colors I wanted! I also squished as many as I could onto the wreath!

Glad I found the Dollar Tree snowflakes at the start of Nov bc they are gone now!

Here's mine:

It's not perfect-my first rosette project, but I looooove it! I looped navy ribbon through the top several times to hang it (those roses are navy also- if they look black to you!!)

It's hanging on my skinny pantry door in the kitchen. Matches my decor so well!
