I am so excited to show you this week's project and proud of how it turned out. This project turned out to be fairly simple. The hardest part of this project, and it really wasn't hard at all, was getting the technique down of wrapping the wreath frame with the burlap. Once you get that, the rest is a piece of cake. Let's get started!
1. 2 rolls of 10 yard burlap. Mine was fairly wide, at approximately 5 inches
2. 1 wreath frame. Mine was 18".
3. Flowers of your choice. I'm putting red geraniums in my front yard this year so I wanted my wreath to match.
4. 1 roll of floral wire
5. 1 monogram letter, black acrylic paint and foam brush
6. Matching ribbon
7. Hot glue gun and glue sticks
*Note* I actually found that securing to one side or the other rather than the middle part of the frame worked best for starting your weaving.
I neglected to take a picture of the next step, but you are just attaching the weaved (at regular intervals) in between loops as best as you can, to the wreath frame. It's not really necessary that you weave each section with the floral wire, but I did it just to give myself more peace of mind. Nothing irritates me more than when a projects comes or falls apart!
To make this simple bow, lay your printed burlap on the floor as show above. Now, gather the middle and secure with some floral wire. THAT'S. IT. Easy right?!?
Voila! That is it! Not too intimidating now, right?! Go ahead and give it a try and show off your handy work!
Until next week....
