Alrighty! Finally, I am going to post some projects I have done recently. First up is a Burlap Wreath. Fun stuff!
I saw on Pinterest a pic of someone using a noodle as a base for a wreath. A NOODLE? Yeah, the one you buy at the dollar store for a buck that your kid hit other kids with at the pool. It's easy peasy!
This is a pic of the burlap wreath finished. I also added an H and some dried limelight hydrangeas. When limelight hydrangeas dry they are the color of parchment paper. I may take them off because my best Yankee friend said they just look dead. So you can easily just have burlap all around instead of adding something to it.
hot glue gun
noodle or any kind of wreath form $1
burlap (2 yds) $4
your monogram (optional, Hobby Lobby) $2
dried hydrangeas (optional) free!
First, if you have a noodle, bend into a wreath.
Cut strips of burlap and cover your form
Now you have this as your base to add the burlap fru fru to.
Cut burlap into strips. I cut mine 4 in. wide by 15 in. long. Just play around with it until you get the fullness that you want. I wanted mine very full. Take the strip and fold like a fan. Pinch together on one side.
Hot glue the (burlap fan) you just made together. I glued in between the folds. You could clip it together with a clothes pin while it dries to keep from getting burned. I was too impatient to do this smart step. Once dry, hot glue to your form. Repeat, lather, rinse for all of the other pieces. Make sure you lay them all in the same direction.
I left one side with no "fans" and attached my H. I then filled in with more fans around the H and stuck the hydrangeas in there. You can add the fans all the way around. It's whatever you like! Next time, I am going to completely cover it. Here it is! Take these instructions and run with it!
