Anyone else loving the burlap decor frenzy? I may be a little late to the party but I've been a little busy in 2013! Now that my time has been freed up from wedding planning, I'm trying my hand at a few different crafts! At various craft shows over the last few months I've seen tons of burlap wreaths for various price points for sale-- anywhere from $40-$80. I decided.. I can make those. So, off to Hobby Lobby I went. I picked up a 24" frame and chevron printed rolled burlap. I got lucky because the rolls of burlap were 50% off when I happened to go shopping. I think I started the hardest way with this -- with a large wreath form and burlap that was patterned on only one side! I looked at a few tutorials on YouTube and a few other blogs and then went for it. I got the wreath finished, stood back and looked and didn't LOVE it.
I sole some of the picks from my garland and liked it better but it still wasn't just RIGHT.
SO, I took it apart at 10pm on a work night! I redid it making the loops much bigger and fuller and LOVE it now. You can see the chevron print a lot better in this wreath too. It's so fluffy and fun to look at. So different too. Plus, I like that I can change the accessories to match the seasons. I do love the pop of red with the chevron.
Here it is in it's final spot. I hung it over a skinny wood Santa that was already hanging on this door and added a red burlap bow I found half off at Hobby Lobby. LOVE it!
