(Great idea, by the way!)So, do you remember all that canvas I had leftover after my disastrous project? Well, something else came out of it, and I shared it with her readers.
Today I thought I would post it here for you!
CANVAS DROP CLOTH WREATH
ITEMS YOU NEED:
- canvas drop cloth (I purchased mine at Home Depot–painting section)
- floral wire wreath, or Styrofoam wreath
- ribbon or fabric
- any desired embellishments
Lay one strip across the top of the wreath.
Take the ends and cross them underneath the wreath.
Bring up the ends again, and tie them in a knot. Repeat until the wreath is completely covered.
When the wreath is filled, you will have spaces in between the knots. To fill these spaces, take your strips (same size), and just tie them in regular knots in between each already existing knot. (you won’t be wrapping them around first, just tying them.) They will be longer than the first knots you tied, and this will fill in the wreath and give it some dimension.
When you’re finished, this is what it will look like:
I chose to hang it on my black armoire, which provided lovely contrast, and then tied it up with a simple red piece of fabric.
Other ideas? You could hang it by ribbon or fabric in a large chunky frame. Want more color? Embellish it with fabric or burlap flowers…you could even make some for different seasons or holidays and switch them out. The canvas is heavy duty and water resistant, so it’s perfect for hanging on your front door.
