- Styrofoam wreath (I used the flat kind)
- crisp white and navy blue fabric
- wooden letter
- paint brush or foam brush
- paint of your choice
- paste waxDirections:
To give this wreath a shabby touch, I tore the fabric into inch wide strips instead of cutting it.Then I wrapped the wreath in the fabric to get the desired buoy effect, using pins to secure. For the wooden letter, I painted it in this fun raspberry (in keeping with the color scheme of the bridal shower). When it was dry, I used the sandpaper to distress the edges. When I was happy with the antiquing effect, I applied paste wax then buffed it off. See other projects done with this technique here and here.
