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.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.

    1. 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.

    1. Hi Susan! For this wreath I purchased seven packages of a dozen assorted sized floats and two packages with two extra large floats each. I had a few leftover, so I would say a 12 inch wreath frame will hold around 85 bobbers. Thanks for visiting!

  1. This is really cool and thanks for the answers I was gonna ask the same ones.
