I am actually okay with that as I caught up with some things which had been ignored for a while or I may have been behind on: a) sleep b) GrandLove hugs and kisses c) Laundry (well, not exactly “caught up”) d) and, some various Craft Projects. Yes, those elusive craft projects that have been calling out to me… “Finish me. Please, for the love of holy craft guns, just finish me.” I am guestimating this wreath cost me about $10 with my Michael’s 40% off coupon app on my iPhone. Which I LOVE by the way! If you have an iPhone and don’t have this app, you are missing out. Yesterday, I used my 40% off one item coupon and 25% off ribbon coupon. I never have to worry again that I left my coupon at home. They just scan the coupon right from your phone. (I was not compensated in any way to say this about the Michael’s iPhone app, but if they would like to throw me some gift cards to support my craft habit I will send you my happy addy.) I purchased a roll of this handy-dandy Burlap Ribbon which I LOVE, and an 18″ foam wreath form. I had every intention of picking up a bag of these… …but they were out. OUT?! But I needed them. Sigh. Plan B. I simply cut 6-8″ lengths of the burlap ribbon, gathered the center and secured with a small piece of floral wire. I created about 20-24 “bows.” Next, I wrapped the wreath form with more burlap ribbon This served two purposes. One, so the white foam did not show through between the burlap bows. Two, so you could not see the white foam through the back of the front glass door. With my trusty low-temp glue gun, I started adding bows in a random placement. Don’t forget the outside and a few on the inside, too. In literally 10 minutes or less, I had a covered wreath I was quite happy with. Covered in burlap goodness. Now, let me just say I am fighting a Fall Bug. No, not the cough and sniffles. The “Bug” that makes me want to pull out my “Bins-o-Fall-Loverlies” and make pretties such as my Fall Wreath. … and my Fall Arrangement in Vietri Pottery which I completed recently for a Fall Contest. But woe is me… I held off that Fall Bug and decided to pay one last homage to Summer. (Plus, I didn’t feel like digging out my Fall cushions for my rockers that are still sporting their blue and brown Summer look.) Call it the DIY Lazies! 🙂 So, I decided to add some of these… Blue and White Hydrangeas. …. and these… I attached everything to one of these craft floral picks, because I wanted all of the additives to be temporary so I could change the wreath to fit the Seasons. After everything was poked into place, I ended up with a beautiful Burlap, Hydrangea and Shell Wreath. While I admit I cannot wait to use this Burlap Wreath to add some of these – I’m loving this late Summer look – If you made this wreath, what would you add to it? I would love to hear your ideas, too. In fact, wouldn’t this make a fun Linky Party? “Share your Burlap Wreath!” 🙂 I would love for you to share these images to your favorite Craft/DIY Pinterest Boards… While you’re at it… you can follow me on PINTEREST, too.
