Burlap Wreath

I made my first ever burlap wreath yesterday and it turned out really fluffy.

 

First try and it only took about 15 minutes to complete just the wreath.

The wreath was very simple to make by using a wire wreath and burlap.  I used this link to watch a two-minute tutorial:  https://www.burlapwreath.com/how-to-make-a-burlap-wreath/.  It’s so simple and to think I’ve been putting this off since last fall because I didn’t know if my brain could handle one more thing in it.

I wanted to do something patriotic for the front porch but this was just a little too plain so I decided to add a little more red, white and blue.

Simple, yet elegant!!  July 4th, bring it on!!!

Elegant yet country, don’t ya think!  Now I need to come up with some just as patriotic at our mailbox at the end of the driveway that won’t get blown away by the storms like we’ve been having! Oh well, I’ve got nine days to come up with something!

The brain is already full of ideas for the fall and winter and have you seen the different colors of burlap out now???  It’s amazing!!  Happy crafting!!

  2. I have always wanted to learn how to do this. Thanks for linking up the tutorial! It will be a project that I will put on hold, however, for a future date, because right now I don’t really have a front door! 😉 Yours is lovely and I really like the red,white and blue accents! I could see adding different colors for the different holidays/seasons. Have a great weekend!

  3. You’re going to have to show me how to make that. I’ve made wreaths from grape vines but not burlap. I got really confused!

    • I would love to teach you and you’ll be surprised how quick and easy it is. I’ve noticed that a lot of people that make them don’t use enough burlap to make them full and fluffy and it makes a big difference. I made this one in probably 15 minutes not counting adding the color embellishments.
