Cotton Wreath

Fall Decorating - Cotton Wreath wrapped with twineHi guys! On Monday I gave you a sneak peek at my fall mantel. Today I wanted to tell you a little more about this cotton wreath. I was browsing online a few ago when I came across this amazing cotton wreath below from Joss and Main. I instantly loved it but was disappointed to see that it cost $175! Say Whaaat? It’s on sale now for $128, but it’s out of stock.

Of course, my first thought was that I would DIY my own cotton wreath. I started looking into buying cotton and realized pretty quickly that to buy enough cotton to make an entire wreath would set me back quite a bit. Between the cost and the time it would take to DIY, I ruled the idea out.

As fate would have it, a few days later I was in Home Goods and found a cotton wreath there for $50. Knowing I couldn’t make it for even that much, I bought it. I loved it as was, but I did feel it needed a little something more. So I got out my twine and wrapped it around the entire wreath. You can probably figure this out yourself, but here is a little step by step to show you what I did.

Clockwise:  I first tied a piece of the twine on the wreath hanger, leaving it attached to the spool. I wrapped it around the wreath trying to space it evenly as I went.

Once it was wrapped all the way around, I tied it off in the back with a knot. Lastly, I cut about 8 pieces of twine in equal lengths and tied little bows around the twine on the front of the wreath. I think that little detail really makes the whole wreath, don’t you?

My husband is still pretty confused about the whole thing. He thought a wreath made of cotton was pretty odd, lol. He and one of our neighbors had a few good laughs over it, calling it the barnyard wreath.

 

Regardless of what they say, I am very happy with my little cotton wreath…call it what you will! I’m working on a living room makeover right now, and once that’s ready I have the perfect permanent spot for my new wreath. What do you think about cotton wreaths? Odd or awesome??
