Updating an Old Wreath August 27, 2012

If you’re like me, you have an old dusty wreath out in the garage, somewhere. I happen to have one such wreath, full of cobwebs and who knows what else, even though I keep it covered with plastic.

So, this morning, after letting Mr. Wonderful know that I would be working many evenings on projects in the next month, just so he would be warned, not expecting a hot meal each evening, I proceeded to spend time on another wreath project. Not for the shop, but for our front door. For the good of our own home! Much needed, of course!

I cut small 2 inch squares of burlap and frayed the edges. Then I took my handy glue gun and made the little florettes, sticking them into the wreath.

Then, I took blossoms from two hydrangea stems, one green and one violent tinted and glue gunned those throughout the wreath.

I’ll bet many of us have burlap and dried hydrangeas and a glue gun sitting around. Now, all you need is that old wreath, out in the garage, and you’re in business!

Now, excuse me, I had really better go get those projects taken care of! Have a wonderful day!

      Thanks, Martina! I’ve given up on the burlap “concept” done the day before!

      Well, not really! I took the last burlap wreath apart and it’s back in a nice little roll. It was just too heavy and I couldn’t make the bow look right, etc. Yada, yada!

      Thanks, Cynthia. I’ve had it for years. You can’t go wrong adding hydrangea to just about anything!

    Just beautiful! You are inspiring me to get out an old wreath and dress it up.
