I ordered just a few supplies from ConsumerCrafts.com and had a few already on hand at home:
- 12" paper mache letter, Y
- 12" paper mache letter, J
- 12" grapevine wreath
- jute (already had)
- brown and tan felt (already had)
- die cutting machine or fabric scissors (already had)
- fabric scissors (already had)
- hot glue gun (already had)
First you will cut the burlap into strips. Then using a little bit of hot glue to secure it down, wrap the burlap around the letter "J" until it is fully covered.
Next wrap the letter "Y" with jute and use hot glue to tack it down as you go.
Third, use a die cutter with a flower die to cut out flowers from tan and brown felt. Or you can cut these by hand as well. Use a large amount of hot glue to secure a small flower to a larger flower and pinch together to create a ruffled flower. Attach 6 or so flowers to your grapevine wreath with hot glue.
Fourth, wrap jute around a portion of your grapevine wreath and secure with hot glue.
I am so grateful for wonderful friends and amazing family. I have so many people who bring such JOY into my life and I was so happy to be able to pay the kindness forward today!
