Upcycling some cardboard and creating a wreath for the door....
My last post shared all the details for making the sunflowers using the eBrush, siphon adapter, fabric dye and staining with tea.... so I won't repeat those steps here. You will need something for your wreath base -- I cut a box using a couple of large bowls for the pattern. A styro form would also work well. Now, gather the rest of your supplies:
I used: 4" wide burlap "ribbon," printed organza ribbon, novelty yarn, the prim flowers and a few twigs from the yard. You'll also want to have a glue gun and a little bit of wire and some scissors.
I loosely wrapped the burlap around the base, making sure the cardboard didn't show between the wraps. My ribbon was 4" wide and I used a couple of yards from the roll to wrap the base. Hot glue the end on the back of the base. Wrap some yarn around about 1/3 of the wreath. Arrange your flowers and twigs, add any additional items to your wreath as desired. Add a length of ribbon and tie the ends together to create a loop around the wreath base and hang from the door.*
*TIP: If using a foam wreath, make sure that you use a cool temp glue gun if you apply glue directly to the form. You can also use floral pins to attach the printed ribbon loops and twigs.
Here's another look at the wreath.
