How to Make a Ruffled Fabric Wreath

Ruffled Fabric Wreath Tutorial

I love ruffles on just about anything (as long as it isn’t overdone). Earlier this year, I decided I needed a new winter wreath for my front door. I saw this ruffle wreath over at Kelly Hicks Design. I adore it and decided I needed to have one of my very own. So I set […]
