It’s time to get crafty for Autumn! Albeit, not very successfully.
I have been under the weather as of late and laying around the house is so boooring. So, I’ve been working on some crafts. Namely, a homemade wreath using felt, floss, and ribbons.
It took me a couple days due to being sick, but I finally made enough felt leaves and acorns to garnish my wreath! Before adding them, I simply covered a straw wreath in brown tulle. Then, I spiraled yellow, orange, and green ribbon around it. It makes a lovely back drop. Finally, I scattered the leaves and acorns on the wreath.
I really want to add a wooden piece in the center that says “All Nuts Welcome”, but can’t find one that will fit. I may just have to ask my mother in law to help me cut one out of masonite.
The only problem I encountered was the glue I used. I did not have a got glue gun (I will be remedying this quickly) and so I opted for some “fabric adhesive”. First of all, I don’t think it will permanently hold the felt to the tulle. Secondly, I did not notice until after using it, but the back of the glue tube says “known to cause cancer in testing”. AHHH! Straight into the trash.
Hopefully, I will be able to keep adorning my wreath without risking cancerous side effects. I’m thinking of adding corkscrewed pieces of hemp cord to give it a more natural look. I hope I actually finish this one, I have so many other projects on the burners.
