Burlap Wreath

 

I went to a fun workshop this  weekend and one of the crafts was making burlap wreaths.

I bought home the supplies and worked on it today. It is an easy wreath to make BUT it is MESSY!

I didn't know cutting burlap made such a mess! But I am happy with the end results! A rustic burlap wreath.

I used a turkey that I had on hand, and when Thanksgiving is over it will be switched out for something that says Christmas!

If you don't mind making a mess.....

Supplies

One wire wreath frame -I used a 16 inch
1 1/2 yards of burlap fabric
1 pair of scissors or a rotary cutter and mat

To make the lines straight the woman at JoAnn Fabric suggested removing the thread from the burlap where you want to make the cut.



 



I cut the strips about 1 inch wide and about 9 inches long.  Tie the strips onto the wire wreath. About 12 per section. I tied the strips at the top and bottom wire and then a few in the middle sections.

You can use a larger or smaller wreath frame, make wider or thinner strips, and adjust the length. It is very flexible!

  1. It's very nice - great job! They look fussy; I'd never have guessed it was easy.
    Hope you didn't have any weather problems today!
