Fabric & Moss Spring Wreath

Happy Monday my friends! 
We are officially on Spring Break and my oldest daughter has been throwing up....blech! By poor girl is on the mend so we are just hanging out on the home front with lots of snuggles and hugs. :)
I wanted to do a quick post to share a wreath I made for a really good friend of mine.  She had these handmade grapevine wreaths from a woman she knew just hanging out at her house.  I had noticed her  pinning ideas on pinterest and offered to pretty them up.

I'm so glad she let me have creative license with this! 
She wanted burlap and I had some different shades from my stash but I added some linen and canvas as well to give it different texture.  I also made different flowers for visual interest. Some ruffled, some rolled, some petal flowers.  I bought moss ribbon and cut it into leaves to continue the natural look.
I won't lie....these will be SUPER hard to give back.  I just love them so much and may have to make a few for my own front doors too.

This was just a quick post to say hello.  
And I wanted to say thank you to all of you who have decided to follow along thanks to Jaime and her sweet welcome back for me. 
I look forward to getting to know you and peeking in on you too!

Blessings and hugs my friends!


  1. AWESOME wreaths!! So natural and pretty. Love the leaves you cut from moss!! Jaime is a sweetheart and I adore her. What you see with Jaime is what you get!! What a blessing to have her post on you!! I can see why she adores you too!! XOX Luv Fran.

  2. This wreath is beautiful!! I love the fabric mixed in with the moss! And love how you used the moss to make the leaves. So pretty!!

    1. Thank you so much Sarah! It means everything to me that you hung in there until I came back! Lots of love! Jess

  4. It's darlin'! I love homemade flowers on wreaths and in the neutral tones, as well. I made one similar to this (Not as cute, of course) so when I saw yours, it really caught my eye. I love that you added some moss. Very cute!

  5. I love the neutral color pallet for this wreath! Your rosettes look perfect. I try but never sure if I'm doing them right. ha! Or maybe you can't do them wrong? hehe

  6. it's really nice ! I like the green touch with the moss :-)
    have a nice day

  10. How very pretty! Just to let you know, I HAD to pin this sweet wreath to my *faaavorite* board: "Adorn My Door"...hopefully one day I'll step up to the plate and actually create some of these wreaths, like you do!!! Thanks for the inspiration. It's SO cute!

  11. How gorgeous! I love how simple and natural this is. I really need to get some canvas to add to my burlap collection. So pretty!

  12. Beautiful! I would have trouble giving them back too.

  13. So sorry to hear about your daughter:(

    That really is one lovely wreath! I tend to be smitten by anything that has roses on them!

  14. My doors are beautiful and my heart is FULL! Thank you for your wonderful creative talent and your desire to help a less-than-crafty friend out! I get excited every single time I pull into my driveway and see "Bernadette" and "Lincoln" welcoming me home. Yes, friends... she even named them for me!

  15. where'd my comment go!??? Ack! At the risk of it somehow showing up again, I'll keep this second attempt brief. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! you're an amazing friend whose talent and creativity are exceeded by your compassionate heart to help out a less-than-crafty-friend. I would have kept plain grapevine wreaths on my door for a year... you know I'm not lying, too. I love you!!

  16. I'm soooo glad I've found your blog :)))
