Bubbly Wreath

I'm always brainstorming new ideas for my line of fabric wrapped wreaths. I thought this one was a rare stroke of genius: bubbles! Being the mother of two preschoolers, we spend much of our outdoor time blowing bubbles. So what better way to celebrate summer than to adorn your front door with bubbles!

Of course, I ran into the logistics of making bubbles that could be attached to a wreath. For this first one, I used small wooden beads, painted white and light blue with blue glitter. I interspersed these "bubbles" among the flowers and I love the result.




I plan to do another using different sizes of "bubbles" and maybe if I'm feeling really saucy, I'll add a bubble wand.

Got any other ideas on how to put bubbles on a wreath? Please comment! I'm always looking for new ideas.

You can find this wreath (and many others) in my Etsy shop.

  6. I'm LOVING this one. Truly. For more bubbles maybe you could use clear plastic Christmas ball ornaments. Maybe it's not the right time of year, but I've seen them at craft stores in the most unexpected places.
