Actually, whirlwind is probably a bit mild. It's been a "queue the flying monkeys" tornado, crazy-busy, weekend that included removing screens, washing windows, a round trip visit to see my son at UIUC, and a very special meeting on Sunday evening that I'll tell you more about in the coming weeks.
In the mean time, a few weeks ago, when I wrote my ombre glitter pumpkin post, I posted a photograph of a burlap and tulle Halloween wreath that I made. A couple of you asked me for a tutorial.
Well, I don't have a complete set of photos for a Halloween wreath, but I DO have some from a Christmas wreath that I made using the same process. Forgive the lighting in these photos, but here goes:
- Styrofoam wreath form
- Approximately 1 yard of burlap and/or tulle, cut into roughly 4x4 inch squares
- Wood skewers
- Elmer's Glue
Directions:Wrap a square of burlap around a skewer.
Dip into glue and push about 1/2 inch into the wreath form.
Repeat randomly around the wreath.
