I love decorating for the holidays! If I can make a wreath, a banner, perhaps use some GLITTER, then I am in! Any excuse to buy craft supplies, girl. Sometimes, I actually manage to make the project I envision and sometimes, not so much.
You might have already noticed my obsession with burlap wreaths. I find them extremely adorable. I think it is the poofiness as well as the vintage look that I like so much. Oh, and the fact that they are relatively cheap and easy to make, both qualities I look for in a project 😉
On with the tutorial, you say? Ok, let’s do it.
Here’s what you need:
*I bought a large bolt of burlap at Lowe’s and cut it into 4 inch strips to save money. How much you need depends on how close together you pack in your loops. The fuller the wreath, the more burlap you use. I would plan on at least 3 or 4 yards.
Here is a link to another wreath I made that includes a great tutorial on how to loop burlap through the wire wreath form.
I made this bow using a wire to hold it together in the center, rather tying a knot. I find it easier and think it looks better.
I prefer the stiff felt decorations at Michael’s because they keep their shape better than softer felt, but maybe a fabric stiffening spray would work for softer felt? Comment below and let me know + show me a picture of your wreath!
Don’t you just love it?! Pink, hearts, xoxo’s, Valentine’s Day, you are the best. Muah! If you have a love, give that person a smooch 😉 If not, give yourself a smooch, or at least a hug. If I could reach out of this computer and hand you a conversation heart, it would say, “You Rock.” Okay, enough with the mushy Valentine’s notes. Night, night, Beautiful.
