I saw a super cute burlap wreath on the internet (I'll be darned if I can find it again!) and decided to make my own. I thought it might be putzy and take forever like this wreath (you already know patience is not one of my virtues!), but it was really fast and easy. Really! :)
I used a 10" wreath form because I wasn't sure how much burlap it would take and I didn't want to go too big. I also used floral pins which I thought worked great.
I've seen tutorials where they used yards of burlap but I picked up two rolls of burlap ribbon in the Christmas section at Hobby Lobby instead. It was 1/2 off and it was already 6 inches wide (saved me some cutting!).
Rolled it out against my yard stick and cut every 6".
1. fold in half to make a triangle. 2. Fold in the top corner to meet the bottom on the front side.
3. Fold the other top corner down on the back side. 4. Put floral pin through bottom to hold corners.
You can "fluff" them a little a this point.
Stick floral pin into wreath form.
I alternated the "bubbles" so they weren't lined up.
add your favorite embellishment
It took me about 45 min to make.
Happy Fall!! :)
