I had these two wreaths that hung in my kitchen windows over the buffet that I was procrastinating in putting up. I felt like they needed a little something, but I didn't know what. So they sat on my kitchen island for over a week.
This afternoon I was on a mission to clear off the counter tops, so it was decision time.
My first step was to give Tessa a teething biscuit to occupy her.
I was in Target last week (you know, for a change, right?) and I snagged this burlap ribbon from the Dollar Spot.
Six feet for a dollar? I'll take three, thankyouverymuch.
I busted out my bow making skills from my cheerleading days and made two rustic burlap and twine bows for the wreaths.
First, I cut a section of the ribbon. I used a 30 inch length, but you can do whatever size makes your heart happy.
I folded one side over, maybe 10- 12 inches.
Then I folded the other side over about 10-12 inches. Again, you can adjust if you want a bigger or smaller bow.
I picked up my folded ribbon where it crossed over and pinched it shut. You can start to see it taking the shape of a bow now
I still have twine laying around from this post, so I cut an 18 inch length to use for my middle. I wrapped it around twice at first, so I could adjust as needed.
I tied it in the back, leaving some extra twine to tie it onto the wreath.
It took me less than 15 minutes to create two bows Super easy!
...and then I remembered I gave the baby a biscuit and now I had to clean up that holy mess.
She is smiling because she knows I am about to find the soggy chunk of biscuit that fell on her lap. Surprise Mom!
Always & forever,
