I've started a fun new project this month: A Year of Wreaths!

Every month this year I'll be sharing a tutorial for making a seasonal wreath over on The Village Haberdashery's blog, The Daily Stitch.

All the items you'll need to make the wreaths can be bought from The Village Haberdashery, and they'll be selling kits to accompany each month's design and make your wreath-making even easier.

First up: a bright and cheerful rainbow wreath to help banish the winter blues!

I adore rainbow things, don't you? All those bright colours together never fail to make me smile.

I've added some sparkle to this wreath too, using some fabulous metallic-effect thread. If you've ever tried stitching with metallic embroidery thread (floss) you'll know it can be a real pain to work with, but this sparkly sewing thread from Gutermann is a total joy. I'm delighted to have discovered it and I kind of want to use it to sew everything now!

Linda - Right?? I was originally thinking of something wintery, but decided that a pop of bright colour was definitely the way to go :)

Katrin - Glad you like it! xx

I love the idea of wreaths as a year-round project and the happy rainbow colors for January! I am looking forward to the rest of them :)
