|Wreath Making With Mrs. Labrasciano|
Hi everyone! It's Amy from Learning Lessons With Mrs. Labrasciano. I was recently invited to a friend's house for a wreath making lesson. My friend Courtney is very talented. Every room in her house looks like it is from a magazine. If you don't believe me, check out her front door at the bottom of this post. When Courtney told me we could make wreaths for around $10 I was a tiny bit skeptical. Boy was I wrong! Wreath making works perfect for the teacher's budget. You can make them for gifts, yourself or your classroom.
|Deco Ribbon and Burlap Ribbon|
You can find everything you need for a basic wreath in the floral department of Walmart. Extra fancy materials will need to come from a craft store. Make sure to bring your coupons. The fancier wreaths will be closer to $15.
Deco Ribbon ($3) and/or Burlap ($3) (a total of 2 spools for a 24" wreath)
24" wreath frame ($2.50)
pipe cleaners(take from your classroom)
Misc. Decorations ($1)
|Wire 24" Wreath|
Try to fluff the burlap or ribbon so that it covers as much of the pipe cleaners as possible.
Don't mind me in my pjs. We craft whenever time allows.
Try to attach the deco ribbon inside of the burlap to cover the pipe cleaners.
Once you are done, fluff the ribbon to your liking.
The following wreaths came from the wreath making party that I was at. You will see a combination of ribbon, tulle and other materials used in wreaths.
The wreath below was created by attaching the deco ribbon to the same wire throughout.
The wreaths with the fuller look are made with large sheets of deco ribbon. This deco ribbon makes two wreaths.
A huge thank you goes to Courtney for inviting me into her beautiful home and introducing me to wreath making.
