First before we get started with the tutorial, I have to tell you something. I went shopping today to get a few things. I hate shopping. I think I was at the second store before I realized that I had not washed off the giant blob of zit cream on my cheek. That's right folks, I strutted my stuff around town in a tee shirt and old jeans, no makeup, yesterday's hair do, AND zit cream covering a zit so big I could draw a face on it with a sharpie and call it my twin. And of course the stores were crawling with 20 somethings with perfect complexions, stylish clothing and tiny rear ends. Why am I even still getting zits??? I am 31 for crying out loud. Why do people lie and tell you you will grow out of it? That is just mean. (deep breath) Okay, on with the tutorial!!!
I didn't time myself so for all I know each wreath took 7 ½ minutes. It just sounded more catchy to say 5. It really was fast though. I love quick and cheap crafts! I bought 3 wreaths at the dollar store. They had bigger ones but because of where I was going to put them I needed them to be a little on the small side. I had pine cones from our backyard and I always have craft wire on hand. I used scraps of fabric. I ripped them into strips about 1 inch wide.
I tied the fabric on. I love the look of the rough edges.
Then I took craft wire and put it around the pine cone and then around the wreath and twisted it so the pine cone would stay on.
I used another strip of fabric to hang the wreath.
