Burlap Wreath

After seeing this wreath featured on Tatertots and Jello, I decided I must make one for my house. I love it! I followed the tutorial found on her site. Here’s how mine turned out.

I wanted to display mine inside instead of outside. So, I chose fabrics that would match my decor. I chose chocolate brown burlap – which I found on sale for $1/yard!! I then chose fabrics that featured reds, browns, and creams to match my furniture/fabrics.

I started out with a 14” straw wreath that I found at JoAnn’s for $2. For the brads, I used pewter mini-squares that were on sale at Hobby Lobby. I had the mini clothespins on hand as well as the ribbon. I inked the clothespins and paper with brown ink. The wreath cost less than $10 total to make. Even better than the cost is the fact that this project took about 4 hours from start to finish! Now, I’m thinking Emma needs a pink one in her room with polka dots, stripes, and lots of tulle!!

I linked this with Making the World Cuter.

I love it. I have seen a lot of different versions of Jen's wreath, but yours is one of my favorites. I think a pink one with tulle would be darling!
