Ruffled Dropcloth Wreath

I have had enough of winter and was in the mood for a new wreath. Using things I had on hand and some inspiration from Pinterest, this is what I ended up with:  My 'Ruffled Dropcloth Wreath'.
My inspiration came from Jones Design Company. They have a beautiful 'Spring Wreath' with a tutorial at this link. I love their wreath with it's perfectly placed birds nest laying on a bed of moss and surrounded by gorgeous linen ruffles.
For my version, I chose to use Dropcloth fabric for the Ruffles and a trio of Burlap and Painters Cloth Rosettes in place of the nest. If you are unsure how to make rosettes, Freckled Laundry has a wonderful video tutorial.
The course nature of the Burlap and the nubby imperfections of the Dropcloth fabric are a texture combination I never seem to tire of!
For a bit of 'natural bling' - I added a few sprigs of Juniper and some simple twigs.
The rock backdrop for my wreath is our well used fieldstone fireplace. I am currently working on a simple 'Spring Mantel' and will post about that in the coming days.

  3. It's impressive how similar the linen and dropcloth look. Linen can be expensive, so that is an awesome alternative! And those rich-in-texture flowers add a lot too. Nice work, Suzanne!

  5. I love the ruffle look! Your rosette flowers look fantastic too, I'm not sure I have that skill yet. Heck I don't know that I can ruffle anything either. I better stick with wrapping yarn around a foam wreath form and calling it a day. ha!

Noticed you live in New Hampshire, I am from Southampton in Hampshire U.K. We have visited The inns at Mill Falls in New Hampshire 4 times and love it there, you are very lucky to live in such a lovely place.
