I ventured into a new thrift store about a week ago and found a stack of 6 crafting wreaths for 50 cents each. I snatched them all up, not knowing what I would do with them.
I decided to try the "As seen all over blogland" burlap knot wreath this morning. So easy, and I think it turned out great! Especially when layered over a mirror or chalkboard, or draped over a curtain rod or headboard.
I started by cutting strips of burlap about 8-10 inches long and 1-2 inches wide. I didn't measure, I think the irregularity adds to the design.
Then just tie the burlap strip around the wreath, making sure to cover the the wreath well by putting each strip partially over the last. Pretty straight forward.
When finished hang with some ribbon. So easy and no sewing involved!
I just did one with fabric. It needs a bauble hanging in the middle I think...any suggestions? It screams little girls room to me.
