DIY Simple Burlap Wreath

unnamed

Hey there!

Today I am going to show you how to make this simple 5 minute holiday wreath. Let’s get started!

This post is part of a Quarterly Craft Challenge, which is a challenge where I send out boxes filled to the brim with cool craft products and supplies, and then we all do a big blog hop and share our creations with the supplies!

This box had:

12″ x 48″ of burlap
1 yard of mesh
1 bottle of Glitter Glue
Burlap clothespin
Over 15 feet of floral wire
4 dowels – 9″ each
Robin Egg Blue paint
Black Sharpie Marker
the Box

Using these supplies participants had to come up with something super creative, and boy did they! Be sure to check out the other projects at the end of the post 🙂

Okay, back to the Wreath!

The first step is to take your burlap and cut it into a thin, long sheet of burlap. The wider the burlap is, the more floppy it becomes. peThen what you’re going to take your floral wire and weave it in and out between the burlap kind of like stitching. I did this three times throughout the back of the burlap.The burlap now wasn’t so floppy and it would stay if I scrunched it up.

After that I twisted the burlap into a circle andthen stitched it with the floral wire at the top and glued it to make sure it would stay together.

hen I took some mesh and glued it to look like a bow at the top. If your bow is flopping around, glue some floral wire onto the back. This will help to keep it stable!

Then I took little bits of glitter glue and put little dots around the wreath. I think this added some nice color to it without taking away from the nice rustic look.
