Etceteras:Twine Sunburst Wreath

Twine Sunburst Wreath | homeworkI remember seeing a twine wreath like this in a catalog or magazine once upon a time and mentally filed it away. The sunburst twine wreath has been on my mind and I thought it would a nice addition to my fall décor.


Twine Sunburst Wreath | homeworkTo make a twine sunburst wreath all you need is a wreath form and some twine. Most wreath forms are thick and great for gluing and sticking things into. I wanted a thinner circle so I made my own wreath form out of scrap paper and tape. Use strips of paper or brown grocery bags and twist them together taping as you go. Make a circle and tape the ends together. Add more tape to make the form stiffer. You can also cut a paper plate or use an embroidery hoop as a wreath form.
Twine Sunburst Wreath | homeworkOnce you have your wreath form, decide how long you want your twine strands. My strands ended being 7” long. Cut several lengths of twine and start tying them to the form. If they feel lose, add a dab of glue to the backside of the knots.

Twine Sunburst Wreath | homeworkI chose to add some silk flower, leaves and feathers. I’m mildly obsessed with feathers this season and ordered several types from Wholeport, including these pheasant and goose feathers.
Twine Sunburst Wreath | homeworkJust like the yarn wrapped wreaths that are so popular, this twine wreath takes a little time to put together. I used very little hot glue to add my embellishments to that I can change them out in the future and keep the twine wreath base.
