I'm going to do my FFF tomorrow! I was just too excited about my wreath not to shar it tonight!
Earlier this week I saw this awesome Burlap Bubble Wreath from The Table. LOVED IT! I knew I was going to use this!
I'm not a big fan of the whole Christmas color scheme (yeah, I'm a scrooge). I wanted a cute, subtle Christmas wreath.
I pretty much followed Sarah's tutorial, except I used a different method for securing the bottom of the bubbles.
I had these old bamboo things from a Christmas grab bag a few years ago.
I glued my burlap squares to these toothpick-like things - first in half, then in half again.
I did this about 4,568,239 times. Haha - ok, not really, but it was tedious work!
Here is my pule of burlap bubbles!
The Christmas part of the wreath was done using cheap plastic ornaments I found at Goodwill for $1.
I dug into my scrap bin and wrapped pieces of fabric around the ornaments. I secured them with hot glue and twine.
Once all the pieces were prepped I started arranging them around the wreath. I was able to just stab them into the straw with the toothpick things.
I think it's cute - not too Christmasy, but just enough!
I have a question for all you pinterest folks. I don't have a pinterest account, but I regularly check my source page to see what projects are more popular. For some reason it won't update. I know I've gotten a few pins since this weekend, but the last pin it shows is from Saturday. Anybody else ever have this problem? It's driving me BONKERS!
Well, this is what I did tonight instead of working on my paper. I'm the queen of procrastination!
Have a great weekend!
