Knotted Burlap Wreath

100_5131
I have been wanting to make a burlap wreath…I bought the burlap a several months ago.  It is actually a burlap tree wrap, four inches wide with a few blue threads in it.

I couldn’t decide how I wanted to do this…trying to figure it out, I came up with the idea of knotting the burlap every so often (sorry, but I did not measure it out) and gluing the knot onto the wreath base.

It’s not perfect, but it is quite cute.  I suppose if a person wanted to be perfect, you could make the distance between the knots exactly the same.  Not my thing, though, so I just knotted willy nilly!

Here’s what I used:

I started with a grapevine wreath, but you could also use any other old wreath (my grapevine wreath was an old one that I had pulled the old decorations off of).  I bought the tree wrap here.  I got a 100 yard roll of it for around $10.

I started knotting the burlap and hot gluing it on!

The whole process took no more than half an hour.  I am going to use it outside on a tree near my driveway.

Love it and will definitely try your wreath! Love simple, but pretty wreaths. The great thing about burlap is that you can use it outdoors. Thanks for the idea.
Blessings, Audrey

Came over from HoH. It's hard to believe that tree wrap went to create this wonderfully primitive wreath. I would have to hang this in my house!

It's adorable, and I like that it doesn't look perfect, adds charm. I love burlap and it's natural texture. Did you use tree burlap roll? Need to be on the look out for it! I've got to say I've never knotted like that. So very rustically pretty! My fingers are crossed you'll share with Sunday's Best tonight - too darn pretty not too!
