Fishing Bobber Wreath

Merry Christmas!

After seeing a BHG tutorial on Pinterest for making a fishing bobber wreath, I knew I wanted to try it for Bradley’s cousin’s ministry.  I have mentioned Truth in Nature before and we are so proud of Jeff and Carrie for their creative ministry to kids from single-parent homes.  I figured they could keep the wreath for personal enjoyment and use it at events or they could raffle it off to make money for the ministry at their next supporters event.

The construction went rather smoothly, just a bit time-consuming to twist all the floral wire.  I used a 12″ wire wreath that I picked up at JoAnns and seven mixed packs of red and white bobbers plus two packs of 2″ bobbers from Dick’s Sporting goods.   I found that the best way to keep the bobbers from flipping to the back of the wreath was to only wire them to the two middle circles on the wreath.  The outer and inner circles acted as a bumper for the floral wire to rest on.  I made the bow out of red wired ribbon that I found in my Christmas decorations bins.

    How did you wire them to the wire wreath?

      I used floral wire cut to a few inches, then I slipped it through the hole on the end of the bobber that opens up when you push down on it (I guess it does that for the fishing line). I then bent the wire and put each end on either side of the wire going around the wreath and twisted to secure. I alternated between the two inner circles of the wreath and did not attach any to the outer or inner wire circles, because when I tried that, the bobbers would flip around to the back. The outer and inner wire circles kept the floral wire from each bobber from moving out or in. I hope that explanation helps – I don’t have a picture of what it looked like.
