From Thrift Store Clothes to Wired Ribbon for a Harvest Wreath

When you can’t find the craft product you need (or are dreaming of), you sometimes have to make your own. And that’s what happened when I was working on an autumn wreath or harvest wreath and I couldn’t find plaid ribbon.

Back in early Spring when I created my Dyed Doily Table Runner, I was already envisioning an autumn version- with doilies dyed to look like chrysanthemums.
