I made this simple wreath months ago and I have not tired of it yet. This is quite a commitment as I have repainted my kitchen three times in five years. I embrace change…in design.
Found the tutorial from thepaintedhiveblogspot.com.
I cut a disk from an old cereal box to create my base. I figured the twigs wouldn’t completely cover and hide it so I wrapped it in twine which gives it extra rigidity as well as a nice, rustic look.
Using a hot glue gun, I worked in sections to attach my sticks to the twine covered disk, building them up where necessary to create a pleasing wreath shape.
To finish, I simply tied a length of twine around the central disk to create a hanging loop.
I like to use decorative upholstery tacks to hang stuff like this.
