Upcycled Fabric Rose Wreath

Step by Step instructions how to make beautiful fabric rose wreath - Pocketful of Posies

With mothers day just a short month away I thought I would share a beautiful DIY Upcycled wreath.  It really helped brighten up my dining room and is pretty simple to make.

I love upcycling things and my latest kick in upcycling is mens dress shirts.  Everything on this beautiful wreath was upcycled from something else, including the wreath form itself. All of the flowers, leaves, and the ribbon hanger were made from men’s dress shirts.  The whole project cost about $8.  I love the way it turned out and you can’t beat the price!

project recipe

  • Vine Wreath (I used a 15″)
  • Hot Glue
  • Fabric Roses – See my full tutorial here
    For my wreath I used 11 fabric roses of varying sizes and stages of bloom.
  • Fabric Leaves
  • Two Men’s Shirt Cuffs or Ribbon

Before I could put my wreath together I had to make my roses and leaves.  To see the full tutorial on both click here.  The roses do take some time to make, but I think they turned out really well.

After all my pieces were made I began to lay out the design on my wreath. It’s important to lay out all your components before gluing. Leaver two or three leaves out incase there are any weird holes at the end.  Be careful not to bunch your flowers too close together.  It will make it difficult to distinguish the individual blooms.

When you are staisfied with your arrangement and are ready to start glueing, I suggest starting with the center “row” of flowers then moving to the outside and finally to the inside row.

If possible I recommend standing or hanging the wreath to glue the inside row.  When your wreath is laying flat on the table you won’t see much of this area, however when it is hung at eye level on your door this becomes a very noticeable area.

Once all of your roses and leaves are in place it’s time to make your wreath hanger.  To make mine, I simply took two cuffs and buttoned them together and then secured them with hot glue.

Then I glued the hanger to my wreath using my Dewalt Ceramic Glue Gun. (Seriously this is the best glue gun I’ve ever owned, and I’ve owned a few)(Affiliate Link).  Besure to add a little glue to both the front and the back of the wreath for extra security.

Finally I sewed a small strip of fabric to the back of my hanger.  This gives the hook a place slide into while ensuring the wreath will still face the right direction.  Place the loop about 1″ or a little more down on the hanger.  Because the hanger is all made out of fabric it will give.  by moving it down a little bit it will help to hid the hook and the loop.

That is all it took to make a beautiful spring wreath. I love the way it turned out and it’s a great use of upcycled materials.

Now it’s your turn to make one!  I’d love to see it, so don’t forget to share below!  Pocketful+of+Posies+signature+blockShop my styleAre you ready to make your own beautiful fabric rose wreath?  Don’t forget these essentials!
