I sprayed the R with brown spray paint and then rubbed the edges and top with sand paper to make it look a little worn...just a personal preference....I like to make new things look old so I don't feel so lonely in this world.
I cut the burlap into 6 inch strips, then thread 8 inches of wire through the burlap (weaving back and forth)....
I tied it to the wire wreath and then pinch the other side and tied it to the wreath as well making a 'bubble'.
Halfway there. I later went and filled in any gaps with random loops. I just kept adding when I ran out of my strips until the whole thing was covered.
I'm traditionally the fan of a bow, but I found this wreath sort of makes it's own fluffy statement....so I bought a few burgundy flowers, then made a few out of felt and fabric.
The top two flowers.
