Well happy Monday Jaderbugs! I can’t believe it’s 11 pm and I am just getting to write this post. I could not wait to post this tutorial because I think it’s super cute for this time of year.
The other day I went in the attic to get a “wreath” out and I realized I had quite a few decorated wreaths. I guess I felt the need for the past 10 years to decorate a wreath and put it in the attic so I can “use” it again the next year. Ehh, no. I don’t think I ever re-used a wreath so I figured I would make a wreath that I can really RE-USE for each season.
Just in case you are wondering I gave the wreath’s to a good home! Let’s get to it.
You can click on the links in the “ingredients” to purchase all of the materials in one spot.
The first thing you want to do is cut out strips of burlap. Your craft ring I am using is wooden only because I wanted something that would be really sturdy. Once you are done cutting your strips then you are ready to glue. Slap a little dot of glue down and start wrapping your craft ring. Over lap the burlap just a little bit like below.
This is what is will look like once it is completely wrapped with burlap. If you don’t know how to make a bow you can always buy pre made ones from your local craft store. Hobby Lobby and Michaels always has nice bows. I bought this black and white one from Michael’s, isn’t it so cute.
The good thing about the burlap is you can add different things to it for different occasions without messing it up. All I did to dress mine up was take some stickers, add some hot glue to the back of it then attach it to a mini clothespin. Remember when we overlapped the burlap? This is why. So we can put the clothespins on each little strip of burlap.
Don’t forget you can do this with flowers and ton’s of other things. So awesome.
I love gnomes so I totally took advantage of Martha Stewart’s little gnome stickers.
I hope you enjoyed visiting with me and my gnomes. See you in the next post Jaderbugs.
P.S. I totally thing this needs to be in a magazine, .
Howdy Hoe Jaderbugs!!! It’s 2012 and I am so excited that I am healthy, happy and hibernating…..it’s sorta cold I tell ya! I got some leopard slippers for Christmas so I actually have a legit “excuse” to wear them. Living in the South you don’t really wear slippers for warmth. Christmas was uh-mazing. I got to spend a lot of time with seester and that is always a bu-last! It’s kind of bitter sweet getting to see her and then parting from her and my babies (god children). If only they didn’t live like…. a BILLION miles away.
We did have a blast though. We did a FUN photo shoot and let me tell ya they are HAWT. I’ll post a few of her that I have edited for you to see her. SHE IS A GEM! So beautiful!
Enough about me, how has your TUESDAY been? I hope it has gone a little smoother than mine. Thank GOD (for real) I am still happy as ever! Just wait till you see the craft I am posting today. It will surely make you smile!
I am using Burlap and a plain white sheet
Honestly, I didn’t measure because in this case it really didn’t matter.
But depending on how big your curtain rod is, that will determine how big you need to make the fold.
See! Nothing perfect. Just Shabby Chic is all.
You want to make sure this measurement is pretty accurate because you will notice it.
Just sew the end that is not finished (burlap) to the white sheet. Then fold over and iron.
How’s it coming!!!!
P.S. How cute for real!!! I also made some fabric flags just for Valentines Day.
P.S. Just a little something extra for you. These were totally NOT planned but well worth it!
They are under my sink.
I hope you totally enjoyed this craft! I actually made these curtains over a year ago but wanted to “re-share” them with you! I figured valentines day is near and and they were just delicate enough for this holiday!
Enjoying my night eating turkey bacon and watching cupcake wars,
