DIY on the FLY Sweater Rose Wreath Video!

 
I'm tickled silly to share our latest DIY on the FLY segment on WBIR's Live at Five at Four featuring my Craft Wars  Sweater Rose Wreath Tutorial with the craftacular Ms. Cheryl Burchett! I love this wreath and now I have two! I can't wait to hang them up and enjoy them for the holidays! These are so super easy to make with old sweaters that have seen better days. I got mine for pennies at our local Goodwill. A little yarn and some faux rhinestones all wrapped around a simple Styrofoam wreath base make for a retrofabulous Christmas craft anyone can make and everyone can love. Change up the colors to suit your decor!



I just got a brand new Aleene's Hot Glue gun set from the fine folks at Adtech Adhesives that would make quick work of rolling these roses!  I can't wait to break it out and make some more!  The three different sizes of nozzles will make it much easier to avoid the dreaded glue boogers.

Tune in tomorrow for a blog hop celebration of my new book with a 150 dollar prize giveaway and a host of fabulous bloggers shamelessly promoting their latest news! And don't forget to check out the tutorial for the Sweater Rose Wreath!
