Originally, wreaths symbolized eternal hope, were usually displayed at Christmas and were made from evergreens to represent the strength of life they showed by persevering through long, cold winters. Wreaths still represent an unending circle of life, but now they can be found at all times of the year and are made from all kinds of materials.
Because my daughter, Katie is hosting our family’s Thanksgiving celebration this year, I thought this wreath made with the leftover fabrics from her wedding would be the perfect hostess gift to remind us all of that very special day.
To see the entire wreath tutorial and for your chance to win a signed copy of my new book, The Refashion Handbook, click here, pin the tutorial to one of your Pinterest boards and leave a comment. I’ll announce the winner next week.

Hi there! I have just found your blog while looking at refashioning projects with my daughter. We are in the process of starting our blog to share some of her creations as well as other bits and pieces of life along the way. Thanks for sharing all your lovely ideas! Hoping we can track down some of your books now so she can read!
Oh that will be so much fun to create a blog with your daughter. She is one lucky girl to have you for a mom! Happy Holidays!
She is so excited! Are your books available anywhere in Australia? Keeping an eye out for her for Christmas 🙂
Are you able to get it through Amazon there?
I never even thought to check Amazon, the shipping is usually more expensive than the books! I will look for it there, thank you 🙂
I have some books and I will check to see how much it would be to ship it from here. I’ll let you know.
Great thank you 🙂
Love the wreath! All your photos are beautiful!
Beautiful wreath! I love that you used fabric from the wedding. It surely makes it extra special.
As one of the others commented, I too have made a “ragg” wreath… and yes that take forever! This is cute and sweet. Perfect for a hostess gift I will need for my cute niece who will be hosting
our family Thanksgiving. Hope I can find some fabric’s in my stash. That would make it perfect!
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Jean!
Love your ideas! Best creative and inspiring! And oh yeah awesome work!
Thank you sooooooo much for your words of encouragement, Marie!!!
