Every once in a while I get the creative bug and want to do some arts and crafts. This time, I was going to make some wreaths. One for Christmas, and one for every day to match my house colors. So, I took myself to the Hobby store then to Walmart since they of course are a million times cheaper for most items. I gathered enough to do two types of wreaths but quickly learned that I do not have the same patience as I did when I was younger.
Here’s the style of wreath on making for the teal wreath. This is a wreath I made back in I believe middle school. I also believe it’s the best one I’ve made yet. Something about the young creative mind.
Once I decided not to use the above method for the teal wreath, I had to find another way. So, I grabbed the wired wreath and had to think a bit. I ended up cutting the teal fabric into about 8″ x 1″ strips then tying them in double knots around the wire alternating sides. I ended up with ends of these strips sticking out everywhere so I decided to pin them to the back of the wreath.
Here’s how the wreath turned out. I added the ribbon and flower as an extra touch. I’m quite happy with how the wreath turned out but of course ended up returning the extra supplies since I didn’t make as many wreathes as I had planned on making.
