This month’s theme is wreaths.

Today all the host including me (Yay!) will be sharing our wreath tutorials on our blogs!
So check out The Gunny Sack, Southern Lovely and Family Ever After
today to see their amazing wreaths.

So here we go….here’s how I made this super cute & easy {burlap} wreath.

burlap wreath

Supplies you’ll need:
one 12 inch wire wreath frame
2 1/2 yards of burlap cut into 1 inch x 12 inch strips


P1010009   P1010004

Basically you just tie the strips to your frame. 
Yep, it’s pretty simple.
I started on the outside edge & worked my way
toward the middle doing one section at a time.

P1010013     P1010016     P1010020

I didn’t double knot them.
I just tied them once & that seem to do the trick.
(Can I just say burlap is soooooooooooo smelly,
& I was covered head to toe in burlap “dust”!)

P1010024     P1010028     P1010030

This actually was a pretty fast project.  (That’s the kind I LOVE!)
FYI:  To make a hanger on the back I just tied a piece of twine around one of the wires.
I really LOVE how it turned out….yes, it was worth the smell & the dust!
Just glad it’s hanging outside!

My Pinspiration:

This hello sign from Johnny in a Dress is so adorable. 
I didn’t have room to hang a sign soooo
I just added a cheery hello to
my font door along with my new wreath.  
I made the hello. using my
Silhouette
& some cream vinyl using the Little Days font.

Inspiration for my technique came from
this rag wreath from The Crafty Polkadot.

Annnd of course, my use of burlap was inspired
this burlap wreath from Made in a Day.

  5. Burlap has such a rustic charm to it. But your lovely wreath could take on different looks with printed fabric scraps, too!

  11. Oh wow - talk about a coincidence! I was just thinking of your pinterest wreath challenge and I was going through all of my things to find something to make a wreath with. I found a wire wreath form that I bought for .50 at a garage sale. I was thinking that I had no clue how to use that type of wreath form. My plan was later today to do some research on wire wreath forms and I check your blog and found your wreath post - it's like you read my mind! I know exactly what I will be doing now! I even have a bag of burlap sitting here :) Thanks for the inspiration!

  23. Polarized lenses (made from Polaroid or a similar material) to reduce glare caused by light reflected from polarizing surfaces such as water (see Brewster's angle for how this works) as well as by polarized diffuse sky radiation (skylight).

  24. A total of 5,171 people were observed simultaneously by two independent observers, and the inter-rater reliability use of sunglasses was excellent (Cohen's kappa = 0.83). Overall, 33.0% of people wore sunglasses when observed.
