Not really but its a great visual for the story :)
My name is Ginger and I am a Glue gun addict.........
I have taken people's property and ripped it up to glue gun it to Lord knows what....I admit it and am not ready to let it go....
(Audience: Yay! Snaps for Ginger)
Legally Blonde reference
I really didn't take said item like in a stealing way, it was left behind by a co-worker who retired.
I LUV her to death, but this JACKET/BLAZER was
Seriously, I never saw her wear it but, it was stashed in her desk like a backup 'just in case'
"I have an important meeting to attend."
Believe me I did her a favor!
I saw this jacket and it had a BURLAP-Y, TWEED, LINEN fabric.
Really, who wears burlap?!?!? Unless you're a POTATO!!
(ooooooooo me, me, me, if I could find a way to make it look cute :)
Most people wouldn't think of doing so if they don't want to be exiled to a desolate island of fashion misfits.
I decided I would make a wreath from this JACKET!?
|Burlap and Blue..Inspired by burlap and blue blog!|
|I know she looks unfinished with the raw edges but I like that about it. She's in my bathroom that I am redecorating kinda shabby chic.|
I don't have a tutorial for this project because I did it a very long time ago and did not take shots of the process. But it is very easy.
- Visit your local Goodwill (they usually have them .99 cents) or Craft store and purchase a wreath form.(this one was straw.)
- Cut 2 inch strips of your fabric. (This was UGLY jacket fabric. :))
- Turn on your glue gun.
- Wrap you strips around the wreath at an angle one at a time trying to end in the back
- Dab glue on the wreath and adhere the fabric
- Decorate the wreath after its covered.
Here are some other wreaths that can inspire your inner wreath decorator.
|Faith Hope Love If you wanna attempt a more elaborate wreath.|
[Wreath .99 cents, and I'll count the lace (.99 cents at hancock fabrics on sale) but I bought it for something else but it wasn't enough. Ribbon from a friend and flower scrap fabric from a previous project.]
(PS THERE ARE SOME ON ETSY BETWEEN $50-$75)
'TAS LOCA (Means your CRAAAAAZZZZYYYYYY girl in tex-mex spanish :)! George Lopez Style :)
Happy Saturday Peeps!
