Polka Dot Square Wreath – Bright and Pretty

Every since I found out how to make use of old picture frames by turning them into square wreaths, I’ve been having a hay day! I wrap old frames with fabric (of which I have an inordinate amount), the variety is endless as to what I can make.

Oh, and the white flower? Coffee filters – 4 of them, squinched together in the middle, hot glued and then ruffled out. Unreal how easy it was. When you make coffee tomorrow take 3 or 4 coffee filters and try it out. You’ll love it. I do.You know what this means? I’m going to  be doing more of them. Maybe a round wreath with lots of coffee filter flowers...


I made a pocket of green fabric, basically with a glue gun. :)

I cut the fabric into 4 inch strips and go around and around the frame using hot glue to secure to make the base of the wreath. I showed how to do it on the post I Finally Joined the Square Wreath Revolution.

This was my first square wreath. I went around the house finding things to “try out” on the wreath. It was great fun.

Best wishes, everyone!
