When ReadyMade Magazine asked me to collaborate and contribute for their special Holiday issue, I was pretty psyched to create some fun & festive decorations. I dug deep into my stash of items laying around the house to see what I could create with. I love finding ways to re-purpose everyday items from my kitchen to my craft closet…as you know!
To make this rope wreath, hit up your local craft or floral store for a plain foam wreath. Begin by securing your rope (clothesline works great) with glue on the back. Wrap and glue on the back side as you go so the front stays nice and clean. Use pinking sheers or regular scissors to make sponge leaves. Make holly clusters with sponge leaves and buttons all over wrapped-wreath, securing with glue. Apply a generous dose of spray paint (I love Krylon) and hang with a fun colored ribbon.
Pick up this months issue of ReadyMade Magazine to see my other DIY Projects. PS- Its the perfect way to say happy HOLLY- DAYS this season!
