Gardener's Wreath

Crafty Gardener(ON 5b)July 23, 2010

A few years ago I made a gardener's wreath from an old piece of hosepipe. The outside elements caused the flowers to fade and the wreath to lose its shape. Making a new one has been on my to do list for quite awhile. I've been gathering bits and pieces, some new and some from the old wreath and finally this afternoon I got around to gluing it all together.

Wrap an old hose around about 4 times to form the wreath shape. Tie with twine in a couple of places to hold the shape. Then glue on any garden related items you can find.

I even found an old hosepipe hanger to fasten onto the door and hang my wreath onto. I think the hanger will help the wreath keep its round shape as my old one had been stretched out of shape.

Cute! Like the hose hanger for hanging it, should remain round! Jan
