Burlap Wreath

After the Christmas wreath came down, our front door was looking pretty bare. I had trouble deciding what to hang because I really didn’t want anything too seasonal or holiday specific. I had in mind a year-round wreath that I wouldn’t have to change out unless I wanted. So, I settled on burlap and got in touch with my crafty side…

 I’m pleased with the way it turned out.

This wreath was fairly easy to make {it took me a few hours, but I’m slow and had some interruptions} and the whole project cost me around 10 bucks. Can’t beat that.

I followed this great little tutorial that I found here. {This blog is fantastic, by the way! So many cute ideas}. There is also a Valentine’s Day version. I might try the heart next year, but since V-day is less than a week a way, I decided it wasn’t worth the effort this year.

I did add my own touch with a raffia bow instead of the burlap bow shown. Thought it needed a little pop of color. The great thing about this wreath is that you can use it all year and embellish it with various ribbons/seasonal decor.

Have fun with it, and make it your own!

  1. Hi! I absolutely LOVE your wreath! Agree that the raffia adds such a great touch. I’ve been reading a little of your blog and love your book list!! Marked a few down to look at. My husband considered seminary as he was leaving Campus Crusade Staff when we were engaged…we ended up leaving staff and he entered the workplace.

    Your baby is perfectly beautiful! We have 3 children…my youngest is 5 tomorrow. I miss having babies so much. Enjoy him!!

    Blessings to you,
    Amanda
