Please disregard the patterned paper and pretend that you see burlap and buttons as well. I changed my mind mid-project, can you believe it? 🙂
Start by peeling back the adhesive backing on your Duck Fabric® tape.
Attach it to the back of your wreath form. Start wrapping it around, peeling off the backing as you go. You’ll save a lot of headache this way!
Keep going. I did seven rotations of yellow.
Then, switch to another variety/color of Duck Fabric® tape and do the same, starting in back, making sure it overlaps a little with the edge of your yellow. Do approximately seven more rotations of this. Repeat again with yellow (or the pattern that you first started with).
Finish with your second pattern (pink in my case). The number of rotations will vary, depending on how far you overlap each, but just make sure that each section turns out about even. If one is a little more than another, add some tape in another pattern to even it out. Easy peasy! See, isn’t Duck Fabric® a breeze to use? It’s sheer genius in my book.
Now cut four rectangles out of your burlap, varying in size. I started large and slowly made them smaller (sorry, only two are shown).
Now we’re going to make the two fabric “butterflies”. Cut a piece of Duck Fabric® tape and peel the backing off.
Cut an equal-sized piece, peel its backing off, and stick it squarely over the top of the other piece. Smooth it out. You may need to trim it if it’s too long.
Now gather it in the center, using the same method as above, folding it like a fan and pinching it in the center. Hot glue it all together.
Now put a dot of glue on the top middle portion and fold it up, pressing it together so it sticks.
Now hot glue the yellow butterfly to your burlap bow that’s going to be second from the top.
Glue a white button on top.
Now glue your bows on, overlapping and alternating them as you like.
Now grab your burlap scraps and cut small triangles out. I cut seven. Hot glue them to your white string, spacing evenly apart.
Now glue the pennant banner to the back of your wreath where you’d like it to be, and you’re done! The raw edges of the burlap give it a great shanty-chic look.
Isn’t it cute? So fitting for spring!
Duck Fabric® tape is a perfect medium for wreath-making. It really streamlines the process, not to mention how fun it looks!
