My front door has been looking pretty sad since....well, since right after Christmas really. Making a wreath has been on my to-do list, but I just haven't had the time to do it. I finally decided to bite the bullet and head over to a few stores to see what kind of spring wreaths they had for sale. If I can't make one, buy one, right? Wrong! I couldn't find anything I really loved an decided to really take the time to make one that weekend.
I have had this tutorial for the Easiest Burlap Wreath you will ever make pinned forever, and decided to give it a go. I already had burlap ribbon on hand from my Christmas Wreath, and just needed one more roll to complete the wreath. I start to follow the directions and soon realize that this is not the easiest wreath to make...it's actually pretty frustrating. Then, while browsing through all the comments on that post (looking for help...apparently a lot of people needed it), I noticed that my friend, Kelli, over at Little Cottage of Mine had made the same Burlap Wreath! Score! I emailed her for help and she was quick to respond and explain how it's done.
For me, the most confusing part was how to get the burlap to look how it did on the tutorial , and I wasn't sure how to do it. What you have to do, is fold little sections of the ribbon so the sides are touching, and then stick it through the frame...then do this over and over and over and over until your wreath is full. This probably still doesn't make sense, so if you have trouble you can let me know and I can probably explain it better.
I picked up some wood numbers from JoAnn's and painted them white. Then I picked up some flowers to add to give it a spring-y feel. I love how it turned out, and the best part is that the embellishments can come off (just secured with wire), so I can dress this wreath up year round!

I really like how your wreath turned out! I especially like the fact that the flowers are interchangeable. Looks great with the painted numbers too.

I know you saw the feature on my blog earlier, so I'm just stopping by to pin this and say thanks again for sharing it!
Thanks for linking up to Show & Tell at Gingerly Made. You've been featured!
Thank you, Ginger!!!
Thanks for the tips. I am attempting to make one tonight. I picked up some grey and white chevron burlap. Should be interesting. I might need to add numbers to mine too.
I'd love to see how it turns out! please share some pictures with me through facebook!
Ohhh! I can't wait! After you make it please share some pictures via my facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/domesticsuperhero
Came out great!!
Love your wreath! I may have to try to see if I can fit our house number on one. Thanx for sharing!
Thanks so much, Pamela! I think it would even be cute without the house number...You could monogram of put your last name if it's short, too!
How did you attach your wooden numbers?
Hey! I used some metal wire. I hot glued the wire to the back of the number, then wrapped it around to the back of the wreath and twisted it together into place.
I am clueless when It come to DIY projects. I just moved into a new home and would LOVE to make a wreath like this. If you have time would you mind giving me steps by step instruction and a list of the supplies I'll need? Thanks!!
