DIY: Make a Cotton Wreath
Give your home a Southern touch
• 14-to-16-inch grapevine wreath
• Cotton branches with cotton bolls still attached
• Sharp scissors or wire cutters
• Hot glue gun
• Burlap ribbon
STEP 1: Use wire cutters to clip several cotton bolls from the stem, leaving the base (bur) intact on the bottom.
STEP 2: Using a hot glue gun, carefully glue each cotton boll individually to the wreath. Repeat until wreath is covered. Mix in a variety of cotton boll sizes and shapes.
STEP 3: Fluff the cotton and fill in gaps with empty cotton pods for extra texture. They provide a fun starburst appearance.
STEP 4: Hang with burlap ribbon.
