I found two for Michael’s (20% off my total and 40% off one item)
There’s honestly no right or wrong way to do this, I kinda just did mine in the order that worked best for me!
Step 1 Cut your burlap for the bow, leaving a little extra so I could cut two “V’s” at the ends (about 1 ½ feet). Figure out where you would like the bow to be on your wreath. Put a little hot glue on the bow and stick on. Apply a little pressure onto the bow for about 10 seconds to secure the glue. Simple!
Step 2 Get your flowers and pull off the flowers and leaves from the plastic stem. You can also cut them with a wire cutter it was just quicker for me to pull em’ of. Now just apply some hot glue to the back of each flower and place around the wreath wherever you’d like!
*Tip- if you find a few bare spots that are too small to place a flower, take a leaf, apply a little glue, and use them as needed.
Step 3 Take a few strands of your raffia and cut about 2” worth. Get an extra piece and wrap around your bundle and apply glue to that area. Stick wherever you’d like on your wreath. This step isn’t necessary; I just decided to add a few here and there to make it a little more fall looking.
Step 4 I made a quick wooden sign because I felt the left side of the wreath was looking a little unfinished. Believe it or not the sign took me the longest amount of time because I had to wait for the paint to dry. An easier solution would be to run over to your craft store and pick up some wooden numbers/letters/whatever! This is such an easy solution to add a little “oomph” without emptying your pocket.
