1 (12-inch) straw wreath with plastic wrap removed
1 yard calico or cotton material Small Phillips head
screwdriver Raffia or paper twist for bow
material into 2-inch squares using either a scissors or
Punch the center of a cloth square
about 1/2 inch into the wreath with the screwdriver. Punch
a second square next to the first, close enough so that
no straw wreath can be seen between them. Repeat this procedure
until all material is used up and there is no straw showing.
Work one small section at a time, taking care to cover
not only the "face" of the wreath, but the inside
and outside, too. Leave the very back of the wreath untouched,
as it will be resting against the wall when you are done.
If using more than one color materials, make sure that you
use them evenly throughout the wreath. After the entire
wreath is covered, make a bow with the raffia or paper twist,
and glue the bow to the top or bottom of the wreath. Allow
glue to dry before hanging.
