As usual, I am assisted by my co-host Baby Kitty who would like to tell you what you need to make it:
- A straw wreath form
- Strips of burlap (approximately 1/4 yard)
- Strips of plaid fabric (approximately 1/4 yard)
- Pine cones
- Faux berries
- Garden shears
- Hot glue gun
This was my first time making pine cone roses and they were super easy! I just used smallish pinecones and then cut them in half using my garden shears! If you want only flat flowers, only use the bottom half. I used both for a little variety.
Finally, hot glue the fabric and pine cone flowers to the wreath. I added a few faux berries for a little added color. And...the best thing is that the whole wreath only cost about $3.00 (with a coupon) for a yard of the plaid fabric since I already had everything I needed! I have plans for the leftovers as you will soon see!
I attached the wreath to my mirror using another strip of the plaid fabric and…voilà! That’s it! I am hoping to finish up the last part today and then my mantel will be ready! Be sure to stop back by to have a peek at what I am working on…Can you guess?…and to see the completed mantel!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed a little peek at my Christmas wreath! Please visit these wonderful bloggers and their beautiful blogs to see what they are up to and to find a list of this week’s participants!
