Okay… I dig chevron. I just do. I’m not ashamed!
And when I saw this inspiration… “Burlap? Chevron? Ribbon? Love.”
I happen to love the cotton in this wreath by Orthodox Mom. Super cute!!!!
I love the chevron ribbon but…
And I didn’t want to buy any.
So I thought to myself:
“Self… You bought ribbon on a garage sale this summer. Burlap ribbon from Ballard Designs no less. It was only 1.00 a roll and you got three, you shrewd-efficient-deal-finding girl you!”
Yes I did. Full rolls of Ballard Designs ribbon for 1.00 each.
I hadn’t done anything with them yet, so I pulled one out one evening along with a black sharpie marker. I flipped on the TV, plopped down on the couch and started working away at it.
Yes it’s time consuming… But it’s a good while-you-watch-a-movie project! Really doesn’t take much for brains! 😉
I was anything but exact with the pattern because I wanted it slightly irregular and imperfect.
I basically just outlined 2 M’s then colored it in… Or W’s if your prefer… 🙂
It would take a lot longer if you wanted them exact though, and had to measure I’m sure. I’d suggest just buying it if that’s the case. Ha!
I sure love it though! Can’t wait to find something to use it on now that I have a whole roll of it!
I’ll post when I do! Whoop whoop!
