Spring WreathMay 2, 2011
I realized that I do a lot of cooking and not a lot of crafting so here goes: a springtime wreath!
I found an image online for an Adorable Burlap Wreath!
I stopped at the store on the way home and picked up the following materials.
One yard of Burlap
A roll of ribbon
A styrofoam round wreath
Hot Glue Gun
Paint/Brushes for letter
Cut the burlap into 2 inch strips. I started by gluing the edge of a strip to the back of the wreath. Wrap the burlap strips around the wreath, just slightly covering the previous piece. I glued the burlap down on the backside of the wreath each time it crossed the back. Continue until the whole wreath is covered. After that I played with the ribbon I bought to make a nice decoration at the bottom. I painted the letter blue and dotted the edge to resemble the ribbon. I hot glued it to a piece of ribbon wrapped around the top of the wreath.
I realized later that the hook for the wreath holder wouldn’t fit where I tied the ribbon, so I added a red ribbon to the top to hang the wreath by.
It turned out cute, but I would’ve liked it a little different. I think it’ll look beautiful on the front door though!
