It's time for a giveaway! In honor of Summer, I'm going to give away a Wrapped Wreath Kit!

Vintage Sheet Wrapped Wreath by jenib320

A few days ago I used a kit to make this wreath! It's actually a 14" wreath form, so I cut each 2" strip in half, so I ended up with 24 1" strips!

Unknown said...

I love your blog. I initially came to In Color Order to check out your pyrex, but I love your DIY spirit & think you are a terrific fiber artist. Shots of George are also a plus! I would love more craft tutorials, shots of your cat, and thrifting/antiquing scores (which seem to be plentiful in the midwest...) I'm going to try to do your wreath tutorial today but I could really use another kit! thanx.

Sara @ Sew Sweetness said...

I love your blog, I don't have any complaints! Actually, I was thinking about your wreath tutorial yesterday. I thought I might grab that circle thingee at Michaels.

Valerie said...

Oh, how I would be TICKLED PINK to win this! My front door could use a really good splash of color, and this would be just the ticket! I can't offer up any suggestions since I already love your blog and have gotten lots of inspiration from it. :)

mukuge said...

Hello, I'm new to the blog and I'm impressed with your unconventional use of hairclips to grip bindings. I guess that'll render the Clover two-pronged pins I just got last week a bit redundant, but hey, that's part of learning. Thanks for the giveaway! Email b a b a y a l o at gmail dot com

Keep up the great work...you're in my top 3, for sure! :)
