Lucy began with a foam wreath form, available at any craft store and many big box stores. She ripped an eight-foot long canvas drop cloth into approximately 3″ wide strips. Next, she dipped the canvas in tea to stain, you can also use coffee for a slightly different effect. After hanging the strips to dry completely, she wrapped them around the wreath, making sure to cover all of the foam, and pinned them into place.
She embellished the wreath with dried Hydrangeas and roses from her garden. Her children contributed found acorns, which she glued into place.
