Here are some supplies you will need.
2 yards of burlap.
18 inch wreath form
floral wire (I used silver)
ribbon and letter of choice
Sheet or towel to work on - the burlap is MESSY!
|This is an 18 inch wreath|
Next, I would cut all the wire. I didn't and it was a pain in the neck stopping. I ended up using 18 six inch wires. Then you will need a bunch of 3 inch ones for the end to get the puffy look. I think I used about 10. I'll explain later what you need them for.
|You will start with the innermost circle. I tucked in my burlap under and secured it with wire.|
|Start making poofs. I pulled out about 8 inches of material and then I secured it to the "section" on the wreath. That way once you secure it, it won't move. It stays put because it is tied to that piece.|
|This is what it looks like with the inner circle done. It looks like crap - I know - Just keep going.|
|I started the second outer most ring. I tucked my first piece down behind a bubble. Make sure you don't tuck where the opening is or it will look bad. I had to do this a few times!|
|Do you see how doing that makes them look grouped together? You can't even see those wires because they are so small!|
|I added my purple bow, although I don't like it much - I think it is too bold!|
|I also added this H - but I am in the process of using antique gold/brown paint to paint this to match better to the burlap.|
