It all started when I was too broke to buy fabrics. Then I saw the potential in dryer sheets to be used for crafts.
So for this project you will need:
* wicker wreath from the Dollar store
* used dryer sheets
* 12" round mirror from craft store such as Hobby Lobby or Michael's
* All purpose Spray Paint (your choice of color)
It is actually very easy!
1. You might need a pin or any tool that would help you push the dryer sheets in twisted crevices of the wicker wreath.
2. Once the dryer sheet pushed halfway tie it in a knot as tight as you could but not to the point of tearing it! No glue required. You do not have to cover the entire wreath. Leave the back as it is.
3. Whe you're done to the last dryer sheet, give it a nice fluff and crumple them, making sure knots do not show-up.
4. Now for the fun part. Spray painting. In my stupidity tried to use metallic finish paint hoping I could get gold shimmery result I desired. It only turned my dryer sheets all muddy brown. Blech. Good thing I only sprayed it in a small portion.
So I removed dirty looking sheets and replaced them with new ones and used all purpose spray paint ocean blue breeze instead. If you want to add sparkles, use glitter spray. Mine actually has some, it's just not visible in the camera. I liked how how the color turned out!
5. There might be a few better ways to put the mirror at the back. I was too impatient to hang mine. I used metal wire to support the mirror from falling and also I could hang it instantly!
6. It will be too fluffy so you might want to trim the sheets and so that the mirror would show.
At the point, you might want to be more creative and embellish them with anything you want! I used these silver beads I got from a dollar store.
I hope you enjoyed my little recyled project :) Do you have recycled project lately? I am very excited what you came-up with! I would love if you share it up at my
happening every Friday!
