I'm back again with the wreath tutorial as promised! It's simple to put together and makes for a wonderful summer welcome for your front door.
I started with a piece of foam tubing from the plumbing department at Lowe's. Why? Because foam tubing is about $1, and wreath forms are a lot more expensive at the craft store. You can cut your tube to whatever length you want depending on the size of wreath you'd like to make. I cut mine in half and used duct tape to secure the ends. I also cut slits along the side of the tube to help it bend more easily.
|Wrap fabric around the wreath form and secure with hot glue every couple of inches.|
|Find a beachy looking ribbon or maybe some burlap to hang it with, and stand back to admire your lovely summer seashell wreath!|
As you can see, I made a monogram for ours. I simply hot glued driftwood to a cardboard "F."
And for the good news...
After this post, we've received an order for two more benches! As I type this, Marshall is measuring and cutting away. Stay tuned for pictures!
