A Sweet Saturday Show and Tell...D.I.Y. Candy Cane Wreath Tute!

It's a Sweet Saturday Show and Tell with a Do-It-Yourself Candy Cane Wreath Tute!
This adorable red and white wreath is as easy as can be and is perfect to deck your halls or walls this holiday season!
Here's the picture how to start to finish!
1 - 8" Foam Wreath Form 
1/2 yard muslin - cut into 4" wide strips
1 Yard Red Cotton or Canvas Fabric - Cut into 4"x4" Squares
1 Yard White Cotton or Canvas Fabric -Cut into 4"x4" Squares
Large package of straight pins
Ribbon for Finishing Touch

 Pin and wrap the muslin around the foam wreath form.

 Cutting the white cotton into strips and than into 4"x4" squares
Do the same for the RED Cotton fabric.

All cut and ready to pin into place.
Gather the 4"x4" squares into a bunch and pin into wreath.  I created approx. 2" chunks alternating the red and white.  
Leave the back empty so that it will lay flat against the wall.

 YAY! The pinning is done...Red and white complete! 
Add a loop of ribbon to the back for hanging. Hot glue or pin in.
Add a decorative bow and your ready to go!
A candy cane wreath...a perfect sweet treat!

Linking up over at these fun places
Pop by and join in the fun!
Now I really need to get back to some sketching!

That is so beautiful Joni and thanks for the how to... now if only I was coordinated I would give this a go.... but I am sure I would end up with a million pin pricks... at least it would be the right colour to cover the blood stains... thanks so much for sharing xx
