from the first time I saw it over on
SO I knew I wanted to make one of my own.
My sweetie cut the ZERO out for me from wood left-over from another project --
[I think they used heavy-duty cardbaord --[
Then I gathered sticks from the yard -
AND made about 24 little pompoms with a large meat fork -
All of this was setting at the house waiting for me for a couple of weeks
[DUE TO WORK TRAVEL - ARGH]
I packed up the trusty high-powered glue gun,
along with extra yarn [and the fork] in case I needed more
and put it all in the RV with the ZERO and the gathered sticks...
Then late one afternoon I set to work on the table just outside our door -
I started with the bigger sticks on the four right angles and
added shorter and smaller sticks to fill in...
I had to gather more twigs from around our campsite
Then I glued on the pom poms to cover the ends -
I think it looks kind of like cotton, do you?
This is it - hanging near the RV door -
[OF COURSE we took it down before we traveled - ha.]
And this is theirs -
You can find complete instructions at the link at the top of this post --
I love how mine turned out -
even if it doesn't look just like theirs -
It's a fun, easy to do, wreath for the fall!
