If you can not tell by all of the red that I have been using in my projects lately, Valentine's Day is just around the corner. I wanted to create a simple wreath for our front door for this "special day." Since I had been seeing so many burlap wreaths lately, I figured I would try my hand at creating one.
I like to create wreaths that are very "full" looking. I think I have inherited this from my mom... I remember when I was little, she would always pick out the fattest Christmas tree. It would take up half of the living room, but it was always beautiful. :)
Here are the directions to the wreath I made. Let me know what you think!
- 1.5 yards of Burlap
- Large Foam Circle
- Any pieces of flare you want (I made fabric rosettes)
1. Cut the burlap into strips approximately 3-4 inches in diameter. They do not need to be perfectly straight... I actually prefer the flaws.
2. Use the strips to wrap the foam circle.
3. Begin pinching the strip of fabric in half and then twist it. This will create loops. Pin the loops onto the foam circle. Use random placement... you do not want all of the loops to face the same way.
(Sorry for the blurry photo!)
4. Once the foam heart is completely covered, you are almost done! Attach whatever "flare" you want... I used the fabric rosettes I made. If you want to see how to make these, click here.
5. Then, hang the wreath with whatever ribbon you want!
It's that easy!! :) I love the simplicity of this wreath and hope you do as well!
