I’m testing myself every month by redoing a grapevine wreath for each month.
Burlap on a Thanksgiving wreath, expected! Glitter…hum, not so much!
It’s starting to be a busy time of year, so I made this easy. A burlap nosegay with glitter! Why not??
I’m starting out with a grapevine wreath. Actually, two wreaths wired together. One small wreath inside a large one to make a thick wreath. As you can see from all the different decor this wreath has been picked, poked, prodded, tied, glued, hot glued and wrapped.
It still survives!
Step 1: Cut a square of burlap about 12 inches by 12 inches. To get a square cut simply pull out a thread of burlap and cut the gap.
Doesn’t ice cream sound great right now??
Step 4: A dollop of hot glue holds the burlap in place. A rubber spatula keeps the hot glue from going through the layers of burlap. A spatula on top to press saves your fingers. You can read my hot glue gun tips for more interesting gluing ideas.
I did get lucky and found the perfect size of raw unpainted bare wood.
Step 7: Lay the freezer paper on the wood with the shiny side with ink on the wood. Rub with a craft stick.
By the way, I found freezer paper in 8.5 by 11-inch sheets on Amazon.
Step 9: Tuck the piece of wood into the vines to hold in place.
Just keep it off the turkey!
