Straw Wreath

 

 What You'll Need:

Let's Do This!

STEP 1:

A) Take the broom apart. Note: Keep the bristles in the same direction as you disassemble the broom.

B) Cut the bristles in half. 

STEP 2:

Cut the length of the artificial flowers to match the length of the halved bristles. 

STEP 3:

A) Cut the inner two rings from the metal wreath frame. Tip: Save the outer two rings for another craft project! 

 B) Attach the beading wire to a junction on the frame to secure it in place. 

 

STEP 4:

A) Bundle a small bunch of bristles and a flower stem or two and lay it on the wreath frame. Wrap the beading wire around the bundle several times to secure it to the frame. 

 STEP 5:

A) Repeat the process of making small bristle and flower bundles and wiring them to the frame. Overlap the previous bundle.

STEP 6:

A) Continue attaching bundles until the whole wreath frame is covered.

STEP 7:

A) Cut the wire, allowing excess to wrap around the wreath frame and secure it in place. 

STEP 8:

Hot glue accent flowers to the wreath. 

TA DA!
