It’s hard to believe it was just a few short weeks ago that I was trying to figure out how I wanted to decorate my Thanksgiving table. I found these simple 3-inch grapevine wreaths and decorated them. I attached my decoration with ribbon because I fully intended to reuse the wreaths for Christmas.
I wasn’t quite sure how I wanted to decorate them, but a plan started to form after I began making satin flowers. While I was at the fabric store looking for pretty satin to make some flower headbands I saw this beautiful red taffeta for 60% off. I knew it would be perfect for my table.
I set to work and made several red taffeta and white tulle flowers. It was pretty quick because I did it in assembly line fashion.
The taffeta doesn’t curl nearly as much as the satin did, but I love it’s elegant look.
To attach the flower to the wreath, I sewed them to a chocolate brown rubberband.
I wrapped the rubberband around the wreath, then lifted it up and over the flower. I only needed to do it once because the rubber band was tight enough. If you do this, you may need to do it twice if your rubberband is loose. It should fit snugly so it doesn’t move.
One of the best parts of this project is that everything is reusable. Once you’re done entertaining, you could remove the flowers and use them for something else – possibly attach them to a wreath, a gift, or let a little girl wear it in her hair. You could match this same theme to any holiday or party table.
