SPD: Burlap Wreath

It is no secret that I am not a DIY girl. Unfortunately, when it comes to home projects I have zero patience. If I can not see the end of a project in about 45 minutes to an hour most of the time I will not see it through. With the help of Pinterest, my craft attention deficit is getting much better! I am a huge wreath girl and made several for our wedding last June. This burlap one I found and loved the idea of changing it out for the seasons with different ribbons, flowers or better yet a monogram! 




You need: 

12-14 Inch Wire frame 
4 Inch Wide Burlap ribbon
Hemp Twine
Accent Ribbon or Flowers

I found all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby. Since the burlap is a sturdy fabric, you can loop, tuck and wind the burlap into the wire frame without worrying about it losing it's shape. I found it easier to work with 3 to 4 foot sections of ribbon at a time. I  used the twine to secure loose ends. 

Work In Progress


Final Product!

After I finished the loops, I added chevron ribbon for am additional layer of color and pattern. It is currently hanging in our kitchen. I love the rustic feel it adds to the decor. 

For a largely non-crafty girl, this project was very simple and just my speed! I highly recommend  trying this or any type of wreath making if your afraid to jump head first into crafts like I was.  Now I can't wait to try my hand at another simple project soon!

Best Wishes,
