It's been a long time since I have been on here. Mostly because I got a new job a few months back, and had taken on a couple things that reduced my productivity in the craft world.
I missed it, as I have been perusing Pinterest, getting awesome DIY project ideas. I figured I would try this one, which seemed so sweetly fall. Here is how my twig wreath turned out!
these were the tools i needed:
scrap cloth ( i used ripped up sheets)
circle/doughnut shaped cardboard cutout
ribbon to hang wreath
Basically, i took twigs from my backyard and broke them down to size, about 9-12". I then made a doughnut cardboard cut out from a old box. I hotglued the sticks around the circle cardboard. I then made the rosettes from long skinny peices of fabric (about a 1/2" thick, and maybe 3-4 ft. long). I twisted the cloth around to make shape of rose. Here is a tutorial. :)
I hotglued those to the sticks (to cover the parts that had cardboard showing through a bit).
So fun, now i have a Fall and Christmas looking wreath, i will probably add some distince berries to the wreath soon.
Hope you can make one, its super natural, easy and cheap!
