One Wreath Twelve Ways April

| | | |

One-wreath-twelve-ways-april-country-design-style-Sq-brownThroughout the year I’m taking one grapevine wreath and redoing it for each month.

One wreath twelve ways April is burlap nests, mattress ticking, and hydrangeas.

One-Wreath-Twelve-Ways-Country-Design-Style-2I started with leftover burlap threads I pulled when making the inspired by art burlap wall hangings.  I cut the long strings into shorted pieces about 2 inches long.

One-Wreath-Twelve-Ways-Country-Design-Style-3I added white glue to a paper plate and tossed in the burlap.  Mix this around like tossing a salad.

Hum, now I’m glued to my camera!

One-Wreath-Twelve-Ways-Country-Design-Style-4I peeled away the camera and used small condiment bowls covered with foil to drape the gluey gooy burlap over.  Then I let dry overnight.

Amazing stuff in potpourri!
