With the truth out, I can now tell you that I am trying really hard to make it an inspiring space that smells as little like bleach as possible. That is the real reason I work with leather. The scent is much more pleasant.
The most recent project for the space was a fun wreath. I wanted something that invited me into the room instead of yelling "run for the hills or you may be devoured by fabric". Hanging this baby on the door definitely did the trick.
Want one of your own? It's simple. The goal was to do a full tutorial but I made it while I was at Fairly Fab Craft Slumber Party and with all the chatting that was going on, I was lucky to get the pictures I did.
Next, pull out your handy dandy measuring tape. Measure the diameter. Give enough extra to wrap around to the back. Cut the measuring tape.
Cute a few triangles. I didn't measure and cut mine perfectly. I like the wonky bunting look. The amount of triangles really just depends on the size of your wreath.
Glue your triangles onto the back of the measuring tape and then glue the measuring tape around your wreath.
Last step. Grab your ribbon. Bring ends together, making a loop of the other side. Pull the open ends through the loop. Tie a bow and hang it up.
All it needs is some wooden spools at the bottom of one side. If you find any on the cheap, send 'em my way. No far you having a completed wreath before me ;)
