Last weekend there was a big celebration. Our great friends Jackie and Dave got married, and it was a beautiful day, ceremony, and party.

Mr. and Mrs. Dave and Jackie Wilson!

Their wedding was at a farm in Snohomish, WA, and was full of wonderful DIY touches. Vintage fabric napkin rings (seen below), recipe cards at the table, and upcycled tree ring cake stands made the day truly picturesque. We hope that even though the wedding is over, our crafting nights can continue!

Isn't the barn pretty??

For the front door of the barn, Jackie asked me to reprise last winter’s felt ruffle wreath in a summer version. We used upcycled fabric (bed sheets) acquired at thrift shops. I left the edges unfinished to give a softer, frayed look. I tried a couple different attachment methods (i previously used straight pins into foam for the felt wreaths), but because of the flimsiness of the fabric, i settled on hand sewing each petal in place.  Long story short, I loved making this wreath but I won’t be selling them on etsy 😉

 It looked terrific on the door next to the other warm tones, and i was so glad to be able to contribute to their special day.
