Now that it's summer, I spend a lot of time at the house. One of the best ways for me to keep from eating out of boredom is to keep busy! My friend Rachel came over to craft, so I needed to find a project to work on. I pulled up my Pinterest crafting board on my phone and found this awesome burlap bubble wreath on Today's Fabulous Finds! I changed it a little and added a few of my own embellishments.
Supplies (from Hobby Lobby - make sure to bring a coupon or buy when it's on SALE):
2 jumbo rolls of burlap ribbon - with wired edges.
2 packs of pins with large heads
10 inch foam wreath (you can make it smaller or bigger according to your preference)
For the flower:
1 small roll of patterned burlap ribbon with wired edge
1 wide roll of teal burlap (no wired edge)
1. My burlap ribbon was 2.5 inches wide, so I cut it into squares (2.5 x 2.5). I measured one and then used it to cut all the others. Hold a burlap square by the bottom corner.
2. Fold the top corner down to the bottom corner to make a triangle.
3. Pinch the very tip of the right corner of fabric and fold it down to the front. Line up the corners.
4. Pinch the very tip of the left corner of fabric and fold it down to the front. Line of the corners.
5. Put a pin through the layers. Pin it to the foam wreath. Pin them so that they overlap and cover the pins. Keep laying the bubbles until you have covered the wreath. I did not cover the back of the wreath since you won't see that.
To make the flower, I started by making 4 bubbles with the chevron burlap. I held them all together and pinned them down to the wreath. I kept making more chevron bubbles and laying them until the flower was the size I wanted it. Then I cut 2 longer rectangles out of the teal burlap. I made a bubble with it and pinned it down under the flower to serve as leaves.
I wrapped the leftover red chevron through the wreath and tied a knot at the top to complete the wreath.
