One of my projects over girl’s weekend last week was to make a wreath for the front door. Success!
I am a pretty big fan of handmade wreaths. For a few reasons actually (one being it is more frugal) but the most important one to me is that I like to change it up. Last year I made a fall wreath, you can see it here, and I just didn’t want to do the same thing twice. So, this year, I opted to make a different one.
I received inspiration from my friend Erin’s beautiful wreath that hands on her It turned out fabulously!
After heading to Michaels Craft Store to stock up on some jute, the letter “B”, and some fall leaves, I grabbed my hot glue gun and got started.
Just pick a place to start and add some hot glue.
Then keep going round and round. I realize there may be a technique for this but I just did a free for all, overlapping in areas. I made sure to add a couple dots of hot glue here and there when wrapping so that no large pieces came up. I also filled in any gaps with small pieces of jute at the end. Jute is very forgiving:)
When your are finished, add some fall themed embellishments and happily hang on your door. Be proud of your creation every time you walk in!
