When I think about Thanksgiving, glitter usually doesn't pop into my thoughts.
But for some reason with bronze gold glitter seemed perfect for the burlap on this month's grapevine wreath.
I an using the same grapevine wreath for each month this year. Each month the decorations get pulled off and new decorations gathered around the house are added. One wreath for the entire year!
Thanksgiving is already a busy time for me and I only have a few minutes to pull together this wreath.
Thanksgiving Wreath With Glitter??? in 15 Minutes.
A burlap nosegay with glitter on the edges, some fall leaves and a quick "giving" sign and my wreath is done! Now to go make pie crusts!
I cut a square of burlap and frayed three sides.
I folded over one side to the middle of the far side.
Then wrapped the other side over forming a cone, or nosegay.
A dollop of hot glue hold the cone shape. I used a "craft" rubber spatulas to press the hot glue down. No burnt fingers!
Along the frayed burlap edges I added a white craft glue with a small paint brush and sprinkled on glitter.
I'm loving the word "giving" this year. So, I printed it backwards on freezer paper and rubbed the letters onto a piece of wood.
