Buffalo check Fall Wreath with Embroidery Hoop

Buffalo Plaid Fall Wreath

It is no secret: I love the look of a small Buffalo check plaid. Heck, I would probably have an accent wall in a Buffalo plaid if I wasn’t terrified of wallpaper. It’s an irrational fear, I know.

This holiday season, I’m incorporating both khaki Buffalo check fabric and black and white Buffalo check fabric into my decor. From gnome ornaments to wreaths, I’m using this eye-catching fabric in small projects to tie a few rooms together.

But before we get to the other fun Buffalo check DIYs, let’s start on this adorable Buffalo check Fall wreath using an embroidery hoop.

I used a smaller hoop because my wreath is for a cabinet door, but you can make it as large as you’d like.

Active Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Difficulty Easy

Materials

  • 9-inch embroidery hoop
  • 1/2 yard khaki Buffalo check plaid flannel fabric
  • ribbons
  • khaki 2-inch wide
  • orange satin 1-inch wide
  • white raffia
  • jute string
  • check in the post for the free "Happy Fall" SVG file (also available: DXF, PNG, and EPS files)
  • vinyl (we used a dark brown adhesive - not heat transfer because I didn't have any brown) ;)
  • Fall embellishments (I used orange berries and a miniature pinecone pick)

Tools

  • scissors
  • hot glue gun and sticks
  • tape measure

Instructions

  1. Download the Happy Fall cut file and upload to your design space. Cut the desired size onto brown vinyl (I sized the "Happy" at 5-inches for my 9-inch wreath).
  2. Disconnect the two pieces of the embroidery hoop and lay the small hoop on a flat surface. Place your fabric right-side up on top of that and then place the large hoop piece on. Tighten after positioning the fabric - you want straight lines.

  4. Cut ribbons for the world's easiest bow! Cut the following ribbon sizes and layer them as shown in the video. Tie them with the jute string and set aside. - 2 x 9-inch (or size of your hoop) khaki ribbon - 2 x 9-inch orange ribbon - 2 x 10-inch white raffia - 1 x 9-inch jute string
  5. Transfer the vinyl to your fabric, making sure it adheres well. You can see how I did it in the video.
  6. Grab your hot glue gun, snip a small orange piece of ribbon, and cover the center of the bow with it. Attach your bow to the wreath, snip the ends, embellish, and hang.

I tried to make a sign on fabric using a vinyl “welcome” I purchased from Etsy and it puckered just awful. Even tightening the embroidery hoop didn’t straighten it to my satisfaction. What did I do wrong.

Kathy, I'm not sure what type of vinyl (heat or permanent stick) you had because I'm not sure what the Etsy seller's instructions were. The seller *should have* given you application instructions and if they didn't, I'd reach out to them for another piece.

But for permanent vinyl (it's sticky), I usually put a book under the fabric and lay the design on it. I use a flat item to smooth it out (I use a Cricut tool but you can use a credit card or firm flipping spatula from your utensils drawer. For heat transfer vinyl, it requires knowing the heat setting of the vinyl the seller used and can often be applied with a household iron.

I'm sorry this happened, Kathy, and I hope the Etsy seller makes it right!
