Funny how I used to be fairly indifferent to wreaths, and yet so far this season, I’ve made multiple wreaths of scented pinecones, boxwood and rosemary?! And now stick-on bows!! What’s next, painted toilet paper rolls? Well, if cardboard tubes can turn out as fun and shiny as this, I’m game! *not really*
Not knowing how this would look, I didn’t want to invest a lot. Who am I kidding, I wouldn’t have invested a lot regardless. So I started with a fiddy-cent tube of pipe insulation (like I used here), and a $5 bag of metallic stick-on bows. If you make this, you’ll probably think you’re clever by skipping the glue-gun and just sticking them directly to the form. But the next day your smugness will deflate because half of them will have fallen off. So just get the glue gun after it, gluing the bows willy-nilly until the form is covered.
I had a few bald spots, so I added silver curly ribbon.
And since we’re having a pink Christmas, I looped a strip of pink ribbon through for hanging.
I liked it so much, I made two. And I guess wreaths on the window is my thing this year.
I think the Den is the perfect spot for these whimsical wreaths….especially since they hang near the Christmas tree (tree, packages, bows…get it?)
Happy Friday, dollfaces! I hope it’s a wonderfully productive weekend for you…I’m trying to wrap things up so I can relax and enjoy all this crazy craftiness! Click here to catch up on what we’ve done so far.
