Home Sweet Home - Tutorial

I always remember my mom's cross-stitched "Home Sweet Home" in our house growing up. And while I probably (very unlikely) ever duplicate the cross-stitch... I LOVE the saying.

This is a gift to a sweet dear friend of mine signed on a house yesterday. YEEE-HAAA! So I whipped up a very cute (if I may say so) house warming gift. I love wreaths... they are so easy.I used a round styrafoam wreath at JoAnns. I like the round ones because you can reposition the ties much much easier. I like things that make my life EASIER! (Ahhh... the joys of finding ways to be lazy!)

Cut 3 fabrics in 1.5"x14" stripes. (You will need 1/4 yard of each fabric) I ripped mine length wise then cut them in thirds. I like the frayed edges. And just start tying knots. Simple as that!
Now for the cuteness. I bought twine for the $1 store and tie in a knot, then unraveled that! LOVE IT!!!!For the house and vinyl... I DID IT! I would be HAPPY to share the cuteness. Let me know if you want one (the wood and vinyl - unfinished)! $2.00 plus shipping (for my non-local crafters).
$2.00 for 4"x4" house and vinyl
(excludes paint)

and include vinyl color: white or off white
