I love how the unfinished edges of the burlap
create a fabulous worn texture.
To make my burlap wreath I needed
about a yard of burlap
a wire hanger
a wire cutter.
Using the wire cutter, I cut
the hanger just under the twist section on one side.
I formed the hanger into a circle wreath shape.
I cut the burlap into approximately 3in strips.
Burlap is an excellent material for this projects.
I wove the strips longways onto the end of the hanger.
I continued this until I filled the entire hanger.
Using the wire cutters I wrapped the
cut end of the hanger around the twist.
I reused a ribbon from our
Christmas Godiva box
to hang the wreath!
The other side of the mantel
received a quick "face lift" too!
This project cost me $.00!
The wire hanger... free.
The burlap... free
(is was the wrapping from a give-a-way I won years ago)
The ribbon... free!
If it weren't "No Budget January"
I would be on the hunt for red or pink burlap
My hanger would be shaped into a heart!
I'll enjoy this one!
