Vintage Kitchen Wreath

I hope you all had a wonderful week.
 I had a whirlwind kind of week,
and I think I am getting caught up!
I was invited to speak to our MOMS group
at our church last week which was a blast!
We had almost an hour together, and I had
so much fun sharing thrifty living ideas
and do it yourself decorating tips
 tutorials with over 100 of the most
amazing women I am blessed to know.  
I talked about this a bit in last week’s post
~Onto today’s junktastic project~
I have always loved vintage kitchen anything,
and this vintage jello mold was in great shape
when I found it recently.
I filled it with some lemons, then some muffins,
 cookies would have looked cute too. 
But this little jello mold was destined 
to be a wreath.   

I had a little bit of this lovely ticking print
left over from the Union Jack made a 
few months ago.
Ticking makes such pretty flowers,
with burlap leaves…swoon!
Here is what I used to make my 
vintage kitchen wreath
supplies:
One metal jello mold (or other junky base)
 1/2 yard of ticking (striped fabric)
1/4 yard of burlap
hot glue & scissors 
directions:
Tear ticking fabric in 2-3 in strips, and remove
excess fraying strings from the edges of the fabric.
Make sure you cut and tear the strips the same
direction as the selvage along the edge of the fabric.
One piece will be for your wreath hanger.
The others you will want to knot one end, then
rolling the fabric around in a loop, tack it down with
hot glue to hold your flower in place.
 (picture above)
Next, cut a few 3″ x 3” squares of burlap, and
fray the edges a bit by pulling a couple strings
off of each side.  Holding one corner of each square
together, pinch and glue in place to form a leaf shape.
(picture above)    
Using a few dots of hot glue, attach your flowers
to the bottom center of the wreath, and add
the burlap leaves around the edges of the flowers.
  
voila! 
A chic “new” vintage kitchen (or anywhere)
 wreath for your nest
Have a wonderful day friends, don’t forget
our weekly party starts Monday night.
I cannot wait to see what you have up to!!
hugs & blessings friend,
Tanya

  16. Hi Tanya,
    what a great idea. I love items like this for the kitchen. I had so many in my other house, but here I hardly have any wall space. I will have to find somewhere else to put one.

  29. Hi, I saw your wreath featured on Tweak it Tues. I love burlap and ticking. The vintage jello mold is such a fun idea. I found an old rusty tractor rim along the roadside when hubby and I took a road trip to ID. I want to use it in my craft room and spell our last name with unusual items. (Olson) I think it would be fun to dress it up a bit like this. Happy to be a new follower. I have a
