I'm not much for football, but, this year I seem to be a little more interested than last year. I'm happy with that. So I decided to make a new football wreath to help get me in the mood a little more.
Here is what I used:
Brown fabric (for lining)
First, I cut two pieces of burlap, and one piece of lining. I made a lining piece to go behind the front piece of the burlap, so that you weren't able to see the paper bag.
I started painting with the dark brown to make the football. I just left the spots for the white sides, and T blank.
I added the white stripes, and the T. It takes a few coats to get the burlap to be covered well.
Then I stapled the front and back together. I put the "lining" piece behind the front piece of burlap, and crinkled up the brown paper bags and slid them inside.
Next, I stapled the ribbon on the back, at the top.
And I called it done. I'm happy with how it turned out. And so is the husband.
Thanks for reading.
I like to party at these awesome places.
