I was inspired to make this wreath by some awesome stuff on Etsy. I thought….I can do that! I really wanted a wreath that I could use in some of the wintry months…
So I gave it a try!! What do you think? It was SO easy….YOU can do it too!!! (for VERY cheap, I might add!)
one medium or large sized Styrofoam wreath
scrap burlap cut into two inch strips
a wooden monogram letter from the craft store ($1)
acrylic paint and brushes…you pick the color
and of course…a glue gun!
Simply hot glue gun the burlap around the wreath. I just partly covered up my previous wrap as I worked my way around.
Paint your monogram letter.
Glue gun your ribbon to your letter, and then glue it down to the burlap.
Tie a bow with your ribbon, and glue it to secure it.
You are finished!!
Burlap is such a great material. I also used to to make a few things last fall….
I know I already blogged about this, but I wanted to share it again since I was talking about my love of burlap. I saw this bulletin board in pottery barn for $150+. It did have a few more details to it, but it is going to get covered up with items anyway. I thought, I can do that!! With Chris’ help we stapled the burlap to the back of a $30 bulletin board from Office Depot. I love it!! It is in my office/craft space, and it is one of my favorite pieces.
I actually bought a bunch of extra burlap because it was SO cheap. I used the extra pieces to make this fall table runner. I just folded it together, stitched it up, and flipped it right side out. Perfect!
Link up if you have anything crafts you are working on, or ideas to share!!
