On the 9th day of Christmas…
This wreath seriously tested my patience, but isn’t it gorgeous? I saw this baby (minus the poinsettia’s) on Etsy and had to recreate it. It wasn’t that it was difficult to make, it just took forever to do. It wouldn’t have taken that long if I just pinned it all together, but I decided to hot glue each little burlap bubble together to make it more permanent. Never. Again. I now have 3rd degree hot glue gun burns all over my fingers. Now that is the sign of a serious crafter for you. Go the pin route, your fingers will thank you.
Step 5: Hot glue a soda can topper to the back of the wreath form and tie a piece of ribbon to it, this is how you will hang the wreath. I used a short piece of ribbon because I didn’t want it to be seen when hung. Hot glue the remaining burlap squares to the sides and back of the wreath form so no white is showing when you hang it.
Step 6:That’s all folks. Hang your wreath and admire. This baby can stay up year round, but if you want to add a bit of Christmas to it, keep reading.
Add felt poinsettias to your wreath. You can find a felt poinsettia template and tutorial on Better Homes & Gardens
. Attach the poinsettias with glue dots or another removable adhesive, so you can use the wreath year-round. By the way, you can learn how to make the pine cone garland that I have in my pictures at Parent Society
