Happy August Everyone! I made a new wreath for my door this week - and thought I'd share the 'how to' in case you'd like to try one out too.
First, I doodled some nautical beings with watercolor and pen on a watercolor pad.
After they dried completely, I cut them out with a pair of small scissors.
Next, I made a loop with soft gold wire and covered the sharp parts with masking tape.
Lastly, I hot glued the nautical drawings to the bottom of the wire wreath (covering all the wrapped tape in the process). I also added some small seashells and a pearl for an added detail. At the top, I looped some bakers twine so I could hang it on the door.
Please let me know if you liked this - or try it out yourself. Your comments keep me going!
