Good morning! I hope you are all well today! We are having lots of rainy weather lately. We need the rain, but my yard is a muddy mess! Hopefully it won’t be too long before we are nice and warm again and the mud will be gone.
I saw this drop cloth wreath over at Thistlewood Farms blog, my favorite blog, by the way! I thought this wreath would be great for the winter months, but it would be perfect any time of year! Here’s the link for the wreath, but be sure to check out her other posts. KariAnne is a terrific writer and so creative.
You can find out all the instructions over at her blog too and mine are pretty much the same. The only difference, I had to cut many more leaves than she did, so my wreath form must be larger than hers.
- Wreath form-I used a metal one from the Dollar Tree, but you could use other kinds too
- Drop Cloth
- Hot Glue
I ended up cutting about 150 leaves. i was able to cut several layers at the same time, so it didn’t take too long.
Once the leaves were cut, I added a dot of glue at the end of the leaf to give it a little bit of curve. This will give the wreath a little more depth.
Once all the pieces had their dot of glue, the leaves were glued onto the wreath form. I glued them on, staggering them, but keeping them all going the same direction.
I hung the wreath on a shutter on my mantle. I have a random outlet right in the middle of the wall above the fireplace, so I always have to find something to cover it up. This shutter was perfect.
I like the contrast of the brown shutter with the white wreath.
I added a couple of brass candlesticks and a little bird to the mantle as well. I’m hoping the bird will bring spring a little sooner. 🙂
Have you ever used drop cloth for any projects? I’ve used it for curtains on my back patio and also as tablecloths, but I have never done a smaller project like this. I really like the texture of it and the soft creamy white color.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Please do go over and visit KariAnne over at Thistlewood Farms. I hope you all have a wonderful week!
