I was searching through Pinterest the other day when I found this inspirational tip from The Penny Parlor!
It is a piece of pipe insulation that you can buy at the hardware store. On her blog she said that she was able to get 6 feet of it for 96 cents! Here it was just over a dollar but compared to a wreath form from the craft store it's still a steal!!!
Next I searched for some inspiration on burlap wreaths and here's some of my favorites:
I have my burlap, my cheap foam wreath form, and some inspiration. Now to get started!
I cut my pipe insulation to the size I needed. I tried to just tape up the ends of the tube like she did but I found that it just folded in half. To give it more stability I stuffed my tube with the classifieds. It worked pretty well. Then I taped my ends together with the only tape I had on hand.
You know pink zebra striped duct tape is awesome! *wink*
Then I glued down some left over burlap with one frayed end sticking out.
Next is on to the flowers. I just bought a bunch of fall flowers for 40% off and pulled them off the stems.
And that's it.
I hung it on my door.
I might move it and put it off to the side of my door like I have done in the past because I'm not really excited about having a wreath in front of the window.
Burlap: left overs- free
Flowers: $3. 40
Pipe Insulation: $ 1.16
I only use half of the insulation so I will use that for my next wreath project and I still have about half of the flowers left too! Hm... what else needs some Fall spirit around here...
