- FloraCraft® CraftFōM:
- 14" Wreath - White
- (15) 1 1/2" x 45" Fabric Strips*
- In quilt shops, they are called a "honey bun”.
- Also available in 2 ½” wide “jelly rolls”. See Step 1.
- Quart Mason Jar
- Silk Gerber Daisies:
- (1) 4 1/2" -- Yellow
- (1) 4 1//2” -- Pink
- (1) 6" -- Turquoise
- Pinking Shears or Rotary Cutter with Pinking Blade
- Cutting Mat
- Glue Spots
- Large Paperclip
- Note: If using 1 ½” wide strips, follow instructions as written. If using 2 ½” wide strips, simply fold strips in half lengthwise as you wrap around the wreath and tie for fuller tails – or use a rotary cutter to cut 2 ½” strips lengthwise, cutting half as many. (Note: A few extra strips may be needed to fill in at the end.)
- Set aside one 45” long fabric strip for the jar tie. Using pinking shears, cut the other fourteen strips into thirds, resulting in three strips of each color/pattern.
- Work with three same color/pattern of strips at a time. Wrap one strip around and knot on the outside edge of the foam Wreath. Wrap the second strip around and knot it close to the inside edge of the wreath. Wrap the third and knot on the outside edge. With the next three same color/pattern fabric strips, continue wrapping and knotting around the wreath, alternating knots on the inside and outside edges. Repeat to cover the wreath with all strips.
- For the jar, wrap the remaining 45″ long fabric strip around the neck of the jar and knot. The trim ends with pinking shears. Adjust strips as needed to cover the wreath. Decide on top of the wreath. For the hanger, slightly separate ends of a paperclip. On the top back of the wreath, slip the short end up into foam so that the longer end can be used as a hanger.
- Arrange flowers in the jar. (If needed, attach a glue spot on the ends of the flowers to hold the desired position in the bottom of the jar. Wrap a long fabric strip around the jar neck and tie, placing glue spot inside when making a knot, to hold. Set the jar on a shelf next to the wreath hung on the wall.
