A little bit of Fall Texture
|Burlap Bubble Wreath|
with Fall Floral Picks
While visiting middle daughter Laura and her husband Joshua in Las Vegas, got into a little crafty mood.
made her a burlap bubble wreath.....so will try to give you a quick look at how I made it.........
|Burlap yardage that the nursery sells there for hauling and moving trees and bushes|
so we just used what was on hand...... pulled a thread to get a straight grain and cut 5 inch strips
|Cut 5 inch squares-|
(bright light I know--
but had to make this sitting
by the pool in 80 degree weather)
|Cut strips 1 1/2 inches wide to wrap the styrofoam wreath base-|

and this one had squared edges rather than round sides
secure with GREENING pins-
we got these from a friend who owns a flower store-
(can also get them at Michael's)
also added florist wire at this time for hanging
|Pull the four corners onto the greening pin|
to make a bubble and secure into wreath base-
you can do this all sorts of ways -- they all seem to end up with it looking ok
add bubbles -- filling out the sides of the wreath--
with a burlap covered base - anything "showing" is still burlap
We liked the neutral colors of the burlap and just added some fall foliage picks-

then when it is time for Christmas decorating, just pull out - (I didn't glue them in)
Christmas Greens or floral picks in your favorite Christmas decorating colors.
Got to love an all- around, all-purpose wreath base!
