A pretty Spring burlap wreath

I’m not a “crafter” by any means – but I love to create things. I am all over the place though! From photography, to light fixtures, and playhouses to wreaths – I just love making things or recreating things.  I got this idea from another website on how to do this wreath and I loved it and needed something for Spring. It was pretty easy to do and my kids were able to help.  I will show how I did it below if you feel like making one too!

Materials

2 yards of burlap {this is about $2.99/yd at any fabric store – and I had plenty left over}

random material {enough to make about 50-60 circles}

foam wreath

scrapbooking brads {we used a pack of 50}

glue gun/glue sticks

Start by cutting out circles of burlap and fabric. {This is really messy – I cut mine outside!} The amount is just an estimate – it all depends on how you layer the circles.

– 50 larger circles of burlap

– 50 smaller circles of burlap

– 50 – 75 small to medium circles of fabric

Put together the “flowers” using the brads. Layer the burlap and material however you like it best and put it together with a brad.

Cut about a 4 inch strip {or strips} of the burlap. Attach one end with the glue gun to foam wreath and continue to overlap it and wrap it around the wreath attaching the other end with the glue gun.  Continue to do this until the entire wreath is covered.

Use your hot glue gun to attach the “flowers” all over the wreath – covering the front, edges and insides.

I tied a strip of fabric around the top of mine to hang it by but you can do this however you would like.

That’s it! It’s easy and super cheap to make!! Let me know if you make one and how it turns out!  To see the original tutorial I got this idea from go here – I hesitated to share that ’cause hers looks awesome – but oh well. 😉
