Red Canvas Spring Wreath
Have you ever wondered how to make a wreath out of fabric with a great pattern, without losing the pattern? I will show you just how to do that in this tutorial for my Red Canvas Spring Wreath. For more DIY Wreaths see my Wreath + Plants page.
I found this fabulous Cherry Idriss Fabric at Hobby Lobby and I wanted to make something beautiful with it, but still keep the pattern in tack. I created this tutorial to show that the old wrapping the fabric strips around a form isn’t the only way to go!
I also wanted a new look for my flowers, so I spray painted them! Yes, I said spray paint! This made the texture of them nice and stiff like canvas. I also like to use unusual items to make flowers, they give my wreaths that special touch. I hope you find it inspiring! Here’s how I put my spring wreath together.
Red Canvas Spring Wreath
- Cherry Idriss Fabric or other Patterned Fabric
- Flat Front Styrofoam wreath
- Bucket Handle
- Fabric Scissors
- Rotary Cutter and Mat
Place your wreath on your fabric and set the pattern straight.
Using fabric scissors cut 3-4 inches of fabric on the outside of the wreath. Size may vary if you have a larger wreath.
Cut a small circle out of the fabric in the center of the wreath. I used a small bowl as my guide.
Measure the inside rim of the wreath and cut a strip of fabric to match it. Glue the strip of fabric to the center rim of the wreath first.
Place the wreath back on your circle of fabric and cut slits on the outer edge and the inner edge of the circle. This will allow you to stretch the fabric while smoothing allowing to keep your pattern in tack. Start with the inner circle of the wreath, pull and glue the fabric onto the backside area.
Pull and smooth the outer edges and glue them to the backside of the wreath as well.
- White Valspar Flat spray paint
- Paper Towel Cardboard Rolls
- Various Floral Stems
- White craft rope
- Teal Woven Belt or Fabric Trimming
- Wire cutters
- Hot Glue and Gun
Take the two large flowers and one small flower, spray paint them with white flat paint. Let them dry overnight. When they are dry they will have a stiff canvas feel to them. To make them different sizes, you can take them apart by removing the stems and some of the large petals from the back of the flower.
For the Paper Towel Roll Flower:
Spray paint the outside of the roll with white flat paint. Let it dry.
Cut seven 1/4 inch sections of the paper roll with scissors.
Bend the small roll section in half and glue them together making a tight flower. Hot glue a bead in the center.
For the rope and Teal Woven Fabric Flowers:
Hot glue the rope and trim into a circle making a bud. Super simple.
For the woven flower, I used a belt that I had that was too small for me. You can use fabric trim similar to the woven vinyl.
Roll the woven trim into a circle or rose. Hot glue the flower as you go. Arrange your flowers and attach your handle and you are done! Super cute and fresh for Spring!
