Burlap wreath

Who would’ve thought that lowly burlap would make it big time!  From table runners, lamp shades, window treatments and even pillows, burlap is the hot trend right now.
I’ve seen so many different burlap wreaths lately that I was inspired to make my own.      3 While burlap is inexpensive and easy to work with, it sure is messy. messy. messy. Strings are everywhere!
Here’s how I made mine:
You’ll need a Styrofoam wreath frame, mine was 16”, about 1 ½ yds burlap cut into 3 or 4 inch squares and a whole bunch of floral pins, pictured below. You could probably use ball headed straight pins too, but regular straight pins could slip through the loose weave of  burlap.
1You can see that I wasn’t too fussy about the size of the squares.                                      

I folded them into a cone shape, put a pin through the bottom and pushed the pins into the wreath frame.

Just keep going all around the frame, filling it in as much as you like. Don’t forget to fill in the sides so it looks pretty from all angles.

I’m lovin ♥ how it looks in the dining room.
