A few weeks ago, I made a spring ribbon wreath and proudly hung it on our front door. Then, Mathlete came home and asked me why I had a Christmas wreath on our door. Insert sigh followed by immediate crafting of new wreath which I will call my late spring/early summer wreath
This time, I started with one of those flat wreath forms (hello $3.99!). I had originally planned to paint it and make a wreath until I noticed there were holes at intervals all the way around the wreath. Oh well…there is always burlap! It is the perfect transition from spring to summer in my mind.
I made ruffles of burlap all the around the wreath form and secured them with a little hot glue. Then, I glued on some flowers I had hanging around the house.
When I asked Mathlete what he thought of my new wreath, he said “we couldn’t afford real fabric?” Lesson learned: just ignore his opinion on wreaths 🙂
Have you made any new wreaths lately? Maybe a burlap wreath for your door?
