Christmas Burlap Wreath


I wanted to do a Christmas craft with our family over the Thanksgiving break and this wreath was just the ticket! I first saw the burlap wreath (several different versions of it) almost a year ago and made a mental note to eventually make one.It was SO easy. Just take a wire hanger and bend it into a circle then take 3 inched wide stripes of burlap and poke the hanger through the burlap while folding it back and forth until the hanger is covered in burlap. That's it!

I wanted to decorate my new wreath for Christmas so I make some red and green fabric rosettes and added a little bird and some sprigs of red and white berries.

I DIDN'T glue any of it on (just used safety pins) so that when Valentines comes around I can take off the green and add some pink rosettes etc.

Every holiday you can switch it up and be creative. The burlap makes a perfect neutral background for anytime of the year!

So cute! I think I might make one of these for my brother and his wife for Christmas. I wanted to make the a book page wreath but this seems easier and I like it better. :)
