Finally, something on the door again....
I was tired of looking at the bare door. We had a few holiday wreaths this spring. Then the Command hook fell off at some point. So, it's been empty for awhile.
This week my back has been hurting. Despite yesterday being almost unbearable, I managed to get up and moving a little today. Instead of heavy lifting (which is what I need to do!), I thought I'd sit and make a wreath.
I found a straw wreath form, some extra tan and white burlap, some green felt, a few greenery pins, and some ribbon.
I cut the burlap into strips... just eyeballed it... maybe about 1.5-2" wide. The more non-precise the better. Looks more frayed and natural. I started the wrapping by secure the strips with a greenery pin (on the inside of the circle... the backs of my wreaths show through the glass door, so the back needs to remain pretty.)
I began wrapping two strips at the same time, pulling tight to keep it from looking too loose.
As the strips would end, I just put pins wherever they ended. I just made sure the pin was middle of the strip so that the next wrapping would cover it.
Once the wreath-wrapping was completed, I then made a few little burlap roses and a green felt flower.
I added felt leaves and attach with some pinches to them.
Then a pretty animal print ribbon bow... and wah-lah...
A snazzy little wreath to dress up the door for awhile. This should carry me till fall, right?
