I mixed up a few different Rit dyes to get this amazing blue color. It's so poetic and pretty.

You will need:


linen fabric


metal wreath form

hot glue gun

  1. Start by dying your fabric the color of your choice. It's nice if there's a little variation in the color... some lighter and some darker.
  2. Cut out leaves out of the fabric. Mine were about 2.5 inches long.
  3. Put a little glue on each end of the leaves and fold them together so they have a more three dimensional effect.
  4. Start gluing the leaves to the metal wreath one at a time, placing the new over the old, until the whole wreath is covered.
