Dropcloth Holiday Swag

I have recently refurbished a chair I found on the trash and had some left-over dropcloth material laying around. I wanted to make a new wreath for my front entrance but I don't make traditional wreaths too much. You can check out my spring wreath made from a silver tray here.

But I have been a crafting fool lately and I woke up the other day with this idea. This idea to make flowers out of drop cloth. Why drop cloth? I have scraps and I wanted to spend $0 on a new wreath. So could I pull it off?

I am over the moon with the results....
I started with some poinsettias

addeda abit of sparkle here and there....

then some roses....

and lastly some carnations or shredded flowers as I have named them.

I hot glued them to a piece of cardboard and added some gorgeous champagne and brown  ribbon I have been saving from a Godiva Chocolate box! Yes, It really was too pretty to throw away.


You can hang a swag anywhere.....

inside on a chifferobe.....


on an a old fireplace insert....

or on the front door as a sweet welcome. I can even attach it to a traditional wreath if I wanted....
but I think I like it as is.

Always being renewed,

  20. PN- I just glued them as I went to separate drop cloth circle. This allowed me to have a flat base to then hot glue to the cardboard.
