Halloween Wreath Tutorial
I used small clear hair elastics, and placed them about every 8 inches to "bunch" the burlap.
I then used floral wire to hook the burlap (where the bunches were made) to the wreath form, about every 2 1/2 inches.
It was cute! But, not quite right. It needed some oomph. I had a roll of black sparkly tulle that I thought could do the trick. I attatched it, using the tails of the floral wire, on the inside and outside of the burlap. Even though the burlap had finished edges, this made it look better.
I was so happy! However, if I had the choice, I would use regular tulle, because the shed of glitter drove me nuts!
I added some embellishments, using fabric, paper, felt, and stickers. I sprayed the whole thing with clear gloss spray paint, to help weather proof it, and to keep the glitter from shedding as much.
I was able to finish this in a matter of about 3 hours. Not too shabby.
