How is your Monday going so far? It is cold,windy, and rainy here in GA. Not too pretty!
I made a cotton wreath the other day and thought I would share it with you. I've seen these for sale, but rather than buying one, I knew I could make one with supplies I already had. I've had real cotton stems for a few years now. I usually just place them in a container and enjoy them that way. But this time, I thought I'd take it a step further and make my own wreath to hang over the gate above my fireplace mantel.
It was so easy! I just cut off the pieces of cotton from the branches and hot glued them to a grapevine wreath. The grapevine wreath is the perfect backdrop for the cotton.
I did this on my kitchen counter. Super fast!
Then hung it up.
After I completed this, I searched online to find some other examples of cotton wreaths. I wanted to know how mine measured up. LOL!
I found several that looked good. Many of them were extra full or included bows or different designs entirely. I wanted mine to be very simple and basic though. But, if you're so inclined, here are some others to inspire you.
So............if you've got some cotton lying around, you're halfway to a cotton wreath of your own!
Thanks for stopping by.
