I Love This and That: rustic wreath

rustic wreath

It's this time of the year again.  Here in Somerset West where I stay, in the heart of the Cape Winelands, a beautiful part of our country it's vineyard pruning time... and time for me to collect a few vine shoots to make a wreath.

My very first blog post I made a plain wreath.  But this year we will dolly it up a bit!

What you need:

  • A plain vine wreath as we made in post "in the vineyard"
  • burlap
  • white material
  • burlap tap
  • a glue gun
  • burlap rope

Firstly you need to fold a few flowers.  Different sizes, with the burlap tape and the white material.  Using the material fold the flowers as we did in the ribbon brooch post, but instead of using needle and thread, you can use your glue gun. Using the burlap tape follow the same technique using the glue gun.  First fold the end in and have a neat inside, then twist and turn the tape, while putting a small drop of glue every centimeter or so. And turn and twist till you have the desired size.

Next we cut the leaves. Every leave does not have to be the same shape and size, having different shapes and sizes makes it interesting by you should cut it in a leave shape with the bottom end flat.

To stick it on the wreath bring the two flat corners together and stick it down like that, to give the leave some shape.

The last part is the three loops which gives a nice rounding off to the creation.  If you have a wide burlap tape, cut it in have to make the loops.  Form three loops of the same sizesticking them together at the bottom and opening the loops at the top to make a pretty round loop.

And now to stick it all together using your glue gun...

Here you need to use a bit of imagination and laods of creative flair. :-)

Enjoy and have loads of fun making them!
