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.
I am linking to these great parties!
