My Burlap Wreath

Now that our temps have cooled a little,
I am finally getting in the mood for autumn!

I made this wreath this weekend....





I got my idea over at Jones Design Company.

She has a great tutorial here. I basically just copied her, with the following exceptions:
1) I used a straw wreath. (just leave the plastic wrap on - less mess)







2) After wrapping the form with burlap strips, I placed all of my burlap ruffles on the front of the wreath.


3) I added an extra layer or two of burlap ruffles - to give my wreath a little more "fluff."







4) I staple-gunned (or whatever the proper past-tense is) all of my burlap on - except where the burlap was too thick, and then I hot glued (and I hand stitched a rough bow onto the ruffles)






After it was complete, I hung the wreath and hot-glue anything "flopping" or not where I wanted it.
Cute, huh?




This is a very "forgiving" project - I don't think there is a "right" or "wrong" with burlap!
It took me less than an hour.
