A Vintage Fabric Rosette Wreath for Thanksgiving

I was so excited about the sewn fabric rosette pin that Flannery gave me last week that immediately I taught myself how to make the rosettes and I got busy making a Thanksgiving wreath for my front door.

These sewn rosettes are made on the machine by stitching a long ruffle from 1 1/2" fabric, and then sewing them on a circle of fabric, starting along the outside and twisting and turning the rosette beneath the sewing foot until you get to the middle.

I used vintage green upholstery fabric and plain muslin for the flowers. I finished them off with vintage buttons and a few new wooden beads from my stash that I had purchased to make these vintage button necklaces.

I purchased the grapevine wreath from Michael's for $3.99, and the two ribbons I used were on sale in the $1 bin.

Welcome to my home! And Happy Thanksgiving!
