I love wreaths - making them, putting them on doors. I've made several - a yarn one and then a grape vine one with rosettes a few weeks back. And I was getting the itch again. I had an available wreath form (the straw kind wrapped in plastic = cheap but don't remove the plastic!!) and some pillow-making supplies that never became their intended holiday pillow on hand and... as they say, the rest is history.
With my helpful pups by my side, I began working on it -
The hardest part of this whole project was probably the hot glue. I've always had a low heat hot glue gun because I'm not the most graceful and coordinated person. I invested recently in a high heat gun (it really does make a difference for crafting) and so as I was on the phone with my bff Beth in the ATL, I was cussing every so often as I burned my fingers. Let's just say I might be able to get away with some crimes because I probably burned my fingerprints off.
But the end result was worth it. Here she is in all her glory. Side note - I did hot glue the ends of the bow to the sides of the wreath so they stay perfect all the time. Tricky Tricky!
