Rustic Wreath - Photo Tutorial
So this is another Super-Duper Easy-Peasy Christmas decoration idea...
You need an old wooden curtain ring - I have so many of these things, it's just not funny!
Also grab a length of raffia and some buttons... plus glue and sandpaper
I wanted my wreath to look a little distressed, so I gave the curtain ring a quick sand to rough it up a bit... I really do mean a QUICK sand - I wouldn't have spent any more than 30 seconds doing it!
Afterwards I was thinking that I could have just rubbed it up and down on the footpath a few times... no sandpaper required...
Now you can wrap the raffia around, then tie the two ends together.
I made a bow at the top 'cause I thought it looked pretty... but later I had to change it to a simple knot - the bow was too bulky for the buttons.
Now just glue a couple of buttons at the top, a small one on top of a big one...
Then tie another knot in the raffia to make a hanging loop
And once again... no more than 5 minutes to make it!
Gotta love that.
