I recently did some design work for Sharon over at crafts 'n coffee. She sent me a Styrofoam Brand Foam wreath that she had covered with a pretty striped sweater from a second-hand store. She asked me to finish it up for her,so I added some felt flowers and fall leaves and berries.
I made the felt flowers and then added leaves and berries from a craft store. For a full list of supplies and the instructions on how to make this pretty fall wreath visit this crafts 'n coffee blog post.
I've been stopping in some local thrift stores to check out the clothing, with crafting in mind. I've never been into a thrift store until recently. I love how the clothes are arranged by color. It makes looking for a particular item easier. You can look through with seasons or holidays in mind and let your imagination have fun with the colors, patterns and textures of the thrifted clothes. Give them a new life in a creative way! :-)
