The young women I work with were invited to attend and participate also. It was last minute so we struggled to figure out how many girls were going to be there. We had a handful show up which was a lot less than I had hoped for (poor planning) so I took home six packages to make wreaths. I was okay with this because I figured we could use them to make as Christmas gifts for girls who are less active.
So yesterday afternoon I finally got tired of looking at the large bag sitting in my living room and then my craft room so I decided I would break out the glue gun and get to work. I got all six made. I finished the last one at 10:30pm. :) Whew!! It took longer than I thought it would but at least they are done and soon to be distributed and out of my house. :)
Below are the pictures of my fun time alone...along with some tricks I learned as I went.
Oh a few last tips. When starting the ribbon on wreath and finishing it wrap the end up 2-3 times to give it a nice finished look.
Using the hot glue gun you always get the little strings everywhere right? Well the faster you move the less you have but when you do get them let it cool and then snap it off right away. If you wait too long you'll forget and then have a spider web looking wreath.
