Well, my friends, in the spirit of keeping it real, here’s what happened when I tried to make a triangle wreath:
- the kids stole my supplies
- I then had exactly 3 dowels left to make the darn thing (thank goodness that’s all I needed)
- my camera decided to do some very weird things (or I temporarily forgot how to use one from exhaustion and frustration) and all of my images turned out blurry and/or hazy
- I had all of like 12 hours to make, photograph, and post about this wreath because I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. Can anyone out there relate?
Basically, this ought to be the worst blog post you’ve seen from me since I started blogging in 2012, taking pictures at night on my iPhone 3.
With all that said, here’s said wreath…
It’s actually super easy to make, and I used only materials I already had at home (because everyone has random feathers laying around, right?).
- 3 small dowels
- wire (like floral wire)
I started by just laying out the dowels, like so…
Then I wrapped the wire around each of the corners about 3-4 times. It doesn’t need a ton of security.
Now came the fun part: adding the feathers.
I simply wrapped some wire around the feathers, and tucked a final, top feather into the corner, or made sure there was only one string of wire on the outside.
It’s a super easy tutorial (if we can call it that), and also a lesson not to leave things to the last-minute when you have a bunch of super cool people that are making wreaths with you and you’re all posting about it on the same day. Did I not mention that before?
Oh yeah, there are more wreaths for you to go and see today, and I guarantee you they’ll have better photos, so head on over to take a look! Enjoy!
