I am loving my burlap wreath I made for my mantle, so I wanted to share with you how easy is to make.
1. To cut burlap without it frying like crazy I gentle pulled on one of the ends of the string till it was out. Don't do this from the salvage edge though. My strips were 3' inches wide.
2. Once I started pulling the burlap gather as I was pulling the string out. This would be a great way to gather your burlap and sew it to a runner, pillow, table cloth the possibility are endless.
3. Do you see all those lines this is where I made my cuts.
4. Here are my lovely strips.
5. Take a wire hanger and shape it out to whatever shape you want. Keep in mind the bigger the size the more burlap strips you would need. I had about 25, because you don't want the wire hanger to show.
6. Weaving the hanger down the middle of the burlap and make sure your wreath is full, but not tight you want wiggle room. I also made sure to make a loop with the hanger so I have a way to hang my wreath. You can use a ribbon to hang your wreath as well.
When I was done I twisted my burlap so it wouldn't look so neat. I also added a creamy white satin ribbon and adding a small dap of hot glue I glued the ribbon in-between the burlap. As you can see I added some flowers as well. The cost to make this wreath was $4 dollars. I always buy my ribbon and tee shirts from the Dollar Tree. The burlap was a remnant from Walmart for $2 dollars. Sweet!
Do you see the top of my wreath where I made a loop from the hanger to hang my wreath? Well, with the burlap strings I pulled out from Pic 1 I took all those strings, twisted them together and wrapped the loop so you couldn't see the wire hanger. Love!
I have another inspiration for another wreath that I will share with you this week as well. I appreciate you stopping by. You Rock! Have a great week and I LOVE your SWEET comments so drop me a line.
